Schloss Bensberg Classics.
Very important cars only.

The Schloss Bensberg Classics was founded in 2009. This event series for classic cars is distinguished by its exclusivity and high quality: with the tagline ‘very important cars only’, unusual and extremely rare cars (many of which are one-off examples) are presented against the splendid backdrop of the Althoff Grandhotel Schloss Bensberg.

The main elements of the programme include a star-studded Rallye Historique through the wonderful Bergisch region, as well as a FIVA A-rated Concours d’Elégance with some of the rarest and most beautiful classic cars in the world. There is also a high-calibre jury, whose previous members have included Giorgetto Giugiaro, Chris Bangle, Jacky Ickx and Walter de’Silva. Since 2011, Dr Franz-Josef Paefgen chairs the panel.

From 1 to 3 July 2016 the eighth Schloss Bensberg Classics will once again have some excellent participants – and will offer all guests the chance to experience the fascination of historic cars at close quarters.
