Internationaal Oldtimertreffen Lanaken 2020

Oldtimertreffen Lanaken 2020


Lanaken, located in the Belgian-Limburg Maasland region, is the place to be for any classic car owner and/or enthusiast between Friday 4 September 2020 until Sunday 6 September 2020, as an individual or part of a club. The centre of Lanaken will then be completely dominated by the “International Vintage Car Rally”, which is organised by the local council every two years. A collection of about 450 pre-war and post-war vehicles will be displayed, including exclusive and prestigious models.

100 years of automotive history

Friday 4 September 2020 sees only pre-war vehicles taking part in the driving tour, which ends for the welcome reception in the town centre. On Saturday 5 September 2020 and Sunday 6 September 2020, the pre-war vehicles will be ready in the town centre of Lanaken for a sightseeing tour through both Belgian and Dutch Limburg. The range of vehicles includes the earliest quadricycles up to vehicles from 1940. Connoisseurs and enthusiasts can look forward to a parade of more than a hundred years of automotive history. And this no ordinary affair - the likes of Bugatti, Minerva, Rolls Royce, Packard, Cadillac, etc. are just a few of the names that will be displayed.

And the post-war vehicles have not been forgotten. Vehicles from Volvo, Alfa Romeo, Volkswagen, Mercedes, Ford, BMW; built between 1940 and 1980.


Every day, participants can, at their own pace, partake in two short driving tours on marked courses, enjoying the scenery, the culture...and the food. Each vehicle will be provided with a rally plate and a detailed road book.

Would you prefer not to drive, and simply “show” your vehicle? You can do that as well. Those participants who place their vehicle “in the spotlight” will receive a complimentary breakfast and a lunch. Those participating as part of a club will be allocated a free tent (5 m x 5 m) to promote their club activities and show their vehicles.


The Lanaken town centre will ooze classics, so to speak. There are activities, music and exhibitions, stalls selling automotive parts and accessories, etc. At the start of the driving tours, the participants will be presented on the catwalk. The climax of the weekend will be on Sunday 6 September. From 1:00 pm, the finest pre-war vehicles will be presented, followed by the club presentation at 3:00 pm. The finest post-war vehicles conclude the day. Full of nostalgia!
