Slowed down by a virus: The Penzberg "Turn Moment" could not take place for three years due to the corona pandemic.
On the weekend of April 15th and 16th, the car show in the city center is celebrating its comeback – including Sunday shopping, horse-drawn carriage and bicycle course.
Penzberg – Looking for a new sports car?
Or after a family carriage?
Maybe a new e-bike for the summer?
Or would you prefer a mobile home for the trip on vacation?
The selection of two- and four-wheeled vehicles that will be presented at “Torque” on Saturday and Sunday, April 15 and 16, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., is definitely quite large, as Eleonore Hofmann from the Penzberger business development agency says City Hall says.
She is in charge of the organization this year and announces that the Penzberg "Torque" will no longer be called "Car Days" but "Mobility Days" this year.
Because with the "torque" much more is presented than just cars - namely many other things that make mobile.
Torque: Last car show was 2019
The event last took place in 2019 and attracted hundreds of visitors from the city and the region.
This year, according to Hofmann, 13 car dealerships from Penzberg and the surrounding area will present their models at the event in the city center, from electric vehicles to hybrids to classic, fuel-saving combustion engines.
According to Hofmann, brands that will be represented at the auto show include BMW, Mazda, Ford, Mercedes and Nissan and Opel, VW and Renault.
Small cars, limousines, mobile homes and even 45 km/h cars are on display, according to Hofmann.
Appointments for test drives can also be arranged.
The two-wheeler industry will also be present on April 15th and 16th
But the mobility show doesn't just provide information about cars.
The two-wheeler industry will also be represented and present city bikes, touring bikes, cargo bikes, racing bikes, e-bikes and e-scooters, among other things.
In general, electromobility is much more in focus this year than in previous years, explains the town hall employee.
Rickshaw, carriage rides and "road songs"
The two-day fair is garnished with a colorful programme: a rickshaw drives passers-by through the exhibition at walking pace.
In addition to food stands, two stands for face painting and a bouncy castle will be set up on the town square.
Children can paint a car there.
A children's carousel will turn in Bahnhofstrasse.
On Sunday, weather permitting, a fairy tale stage opens at 2.30 p.m.
A street musician plays "road songs" at different places.
A horse-drawn carriage shuttles between Christkönigskirche and Berghalde on both days between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. free of charge.
According to Hofmann, the traffic police are setting up a driving simulator on Friedrich-Ebert-Strasse and offering helmet and reaction tests.
On April 16 there will also be a Sunday shopping event.
Core time is between 12 p.m. and 5 p.m.
Several downtown streets closed
The two-day mobility fair will take place in the city center.
The Bahnhofstrasse between Christkönigskirche and the bus station, Karlstrasse between Philippstrasse and Sigmundstrasse, Friedrich-Ebert-Strasse between Rathauspassage and Philippstrasse and Ludwig-März-Strasse between the ice cream parlor and Bahnhofstrasse will be closed.
