From 29 June to 6 July 2019 in Munich and the Surrounding Area

OutDays 2019: The Festival for Outdoor Culture

This summer, Europe's largest outdoor trade show OutDoor by ISPO will take place for the first time in Munich. To make sure that all outdoor fans who are not trade visitors get something out of it, the OutDays take place from 29th of June to 6th of July 2019. The event series, which has been running since last weekend, is already in full swing and in the coming days it will deliver plenty of highlights from after-work bike sessions to open-air mountain film evenings to the bivouac camp on the Hintertux glacier.

Registrations for the OutDays Event are now possible.

With OutDays, the OutDoor by ISPO team is bringing the lifestyle and dynamism of OutDoor by ISPO to the Munich metropolitan region and beyond for a week. The "Priceless Moments" stand out above all.

Campervan Challenge

One of them was the Campervan Challenge, which ended last Monday. Four teams drove through the mountains in Hymercar motorhomes for a total of four days and collected as many outdoor experiences as possible on their road trips while camping, hiking, climbing, SUP or biking. On Monday evening, the teams returned to the exhibition grounds and reported on their adventures. We will soon be showing the highlights of their travels here at and on our OutDays 2019 Facebook page.

The winners of the OutDays HamburgHero Challenge are on the road a little longer and at the other end of the country. Together with Globetrotter, Ahoi Bullis and Walden Magazine, we had searched for eight teams who would go on a week-long search for outdoor adventures in VW T6 California campervans at short notice.

If you want to get an impression of their experiences, have a look at Instagram under the hashtag #HamburgHeroChallenge. When the teams return next Thursday, we'll be sharing stories and pictures here on the site and on Facebook.

Tim Leatherman Signs Your Tool!

Already last Saturday Tim Leatherman, the inventor of the multi-purpose tool of the same name, visited Globetrotter in Munich to sign Leathermans that people had brought along or just bought. About 120 visitors came to have their signatures engraved, some even with several multi-tools.

Tim Leatherman was delighted with the crowds of visitors and the stories they told him. In addition, Leatherman had set up a multi-purpose test station, where visitors had to solve four tasks - screwing, turning, sawing and cutting - using the multi-tool on time and could win high-quality prizes. After his successful appearance in the city centre, Tim Leatherman gave another "autograph session" the following Sunday at OutDoor by ISPO for all visitors who brought a multi-tool with them.

Valo Motion "Augumented Reality Climbing"

Also at Globetrotter, you can try your hand at "Augmented Reality Climbing" on the climbing wall of Valo Motion individually or in pairs. The electronically controlled wall, on which gaming is combined with climbing, will remain directly in the entrance area of the store until Tuesday, 2 July (from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.). Whether shooting asteroids, catching bats or ping-pong - the Valo Motion climbing wall provides a playful workout.

Bavarian Outdoor Film Festival (BOFF).

After the first OutDays open air cinema night on Monday with Reel Rock suffered a bit from the sudden Munich storm, the sky spoiled the second evening in the cinema at the Olympic lake with perfect summer temperatures. More than 400 outdoor enthusiasts found their way to the Olympic Park on Tuesday for the Open Air Screening of the Bavarian Outdoor Film Festival BOFF and were inspired by adventurer Andi Prielmaier, filmmaker Tom Dauer and author Sandra Freudenberg.

As a prominent guest and with his own film ("ALLEIN"), Robert Jasper, a professional climber who had sent a personal invitation to the BOFF directly from the north face of the Eiger just a few days before, was also there. The mountain bike professional Gerhard Senfter also spontaneously found his way to the open-air cinema and mingled with the audience, who cheered on every single film of the festival.

On the Isartrails the bikers went over stick and stone past the numerous barbecuing people.

Afterwork Bike Event

The OutDays Afterwork Bike Event with ION Bikes and the team riders Julia Hofmann and Rob Heran also took place on Tuesday parallel to the cinema evening in the Olympic Park. After a short briefing we went from the Thalkirchner bridge on the Isartrails over stick and stone and past the numerous grilling people along the Isar. Due to the thunderstorm the day before, the trails were still wet and slippery, which didn't spoil the fun of the evening ride. Afterwards the participants cycled directly into The Sync. Workshop in the Kirchenstraße to get some tips from the ION pros regarding screws and bike configuration. 

OutDays 2019 will run until next Saturday, 6th of July 2019. Other highlight events are: Logo
