    Great show - just be careful if you park a hire-car in the streets adjacent. There is a near-by football stadium and when a match is due, 60 cars at a time will be towed away to the pound. Park careful out there! ;0)

    I"ve helped my pal out there for 4 or 5 years on his stand (SfA it is dog handling equipment located just near the escalator).
    It got a great dog section also with all the proper breeds represented.
    It"s really a 2 days show to do it well but I was always knackered after the days work so I dont know any good hang outs in the town but anywhere near a main railway station is always a good bet in Germany for good cheap food.
    Enjoy.

    Just booked myself and 3 mates up for this jolly, going Thursday early, getting the Friday evening flight home. Sounds right up my street.

    Went last year for the first time, it is an amazing show some of the taxidermy on display was spectacular, there was a full body mount elephant, and as said you really need two days at it as the first day you just walk about with your mouth open.
    Not making it this year as I'm going to be in Vegas with my work, but by a magical coincidence the Safari Club International expo is on at the same time so going to do a couple of days at that

    Hi,

    I went to this show about six years ago when I was on a boar hunting trip with my German chum. I have to say it was well worth the changing our plans to visit prior to my flight back to Scotland.

    However, I am rather interested to learn where you are flying from to get a return ticket for 30.00 and make it an away day.

    I think it a good idea for a couple of my chums here in Aberdeen to have a weekend visit.

    Try to visit the IWA in Nurnberg. Supposedly only for the trade but your gunshop should be able to help you get entry. I found that a league above Dortmund, all the latest kit.

    Donsider - Easyjet from Luton gives you the whole day there. When I booked the flights were under 40 return but have crept up a bit. My team is staying over night on Thursday to make it a 2 dayer.
