Düsseldorf Boat Show 2020: Everything you need to know
When: 18-26 January Where Messe Düsseldorf Openingtimes: 10am-6pm daily Ticketcost: €19 Website:www.boat-duesseldorf.com
If you genuinely want to compare a lot of boats back-to-back then no other show makes it more convenient than Düsseldorf. It’s one of the biggest
– if not the biggest – indoor show in the world and it has everything from kayaks to superyachts.
The show is brilliantly run and easy to get to – you even get free public transport around the city with your show ticket.
It’s a big show to get around so it’s best to allow two full days to take it all in and ensure you don’t have to rush your lunch of Bratwurst and Altbier in the charming outdoor food market at the show’s centre.
There are plentiful low-cost flights from all over the UK and a good selection of hotels near the Messe Centre itself or in the town centre near the Altestadt (old town), which is well worth visiting of an evening.
We musn’t forget the boats, though, as there are some important launches coming in 2020 including the Beneteau Gran Turismo 32, DutchCraft 25, Pearl 62 and Fairline Targa 45GT.
