May and June
If we have it our way, from July onwards you will be able to try out the BLOCKLINE as a complete package, including a cool adventure guide.
However, according to the Corona Emergency Braking Act, this will only work if the incidence levels in the county fall below 100. If that's the case, we're ready and looking forward to riding the BLOCKLINE with you.
Otherwise, if everything goes well, we are looking forward to celebrating the official opening party together with you.
On 9 July the BLOCKLINE will be officially opened in Holzhau by the invited guests.
On 10 July we will open the BLOCKLINE with a wonderful family festival in Blockhausen.
We look forward to celebrating with you and welcoming you there.
