For those of you not familiar with Viele Strassen, it is a driving extravaganza presented by the Southern Indiana Region over the fantastic roads that southern Indiana is known. Viele Strassen translated means “Many Roads”. The event will be held at the historic West Baden Springs hotel in French Lick, Indiana. It is a weekend not to be missed. If you have never been to the West Baden Hotel, it is a fabulous domed structure which was considered the “8th wonder of the world” when built for its style and architecture. It has been completely restored to its original design as constructed 100 years ago. The PCA 2015 and 2021 Parades were held at the venue and introduced PCA members to a “surprise” in southern Indiana.
This year’s Viele Strassen will be held August 22, 23 24, and 25, 2024. Arrival is planned for Thursday afternoon or evening and departure is Sunday the 25th. There will be a welcome reception at which you may check in and you will be presented with a “Goodie Bag” which includes ……
tickets, coupons, and special gifts to remember your Viele Strassen experience which is provided to each room. By 7pm we think most will have arrived. For Thursday evening we plan to arrange shuttles that will drive us up to Hagen’s Clubhouse Restaurant for a meal. If you prefer to venture off on your own or are arriving very late, there are other restaurants in the area or you can eat at the hotels. Lunch, cocktail parties and dinner on the 23rd and the 24th are included in your registration and will be bigger and better than last year.
The drives are planned for Friday and Saturday. They will be some of the best roads, with many interesting turns and elevation changes. Some that have been to Parade in the past have said that it may have been the best driving roads they have been on. It will be a perfect exercise for a Porsche and the driver. Lunch will be provided both days and is included in your registration. The drives will return to the hotel by mid-afternoon to allow for some time to explore the hotel shops, bowl a game in the basement bowling alley, get a massage in the spa or go for a swim. The hotel has shuttles, at no charge, to take us for dinner on Friday evening. On Saturday evening, dinner will be inside the dome which is a unique treat! Friday and Saturday evening meals and transportation is included in your registration fee.
