Travemünde, the mecca for all Volkswagen Beetle, lies in Schleswig-Holstein, right on the beach in northern Germany. This is where the never-ending fascination with the Beetle bursts into life once a year. More than 700 cars of all shapes and sizes savored this year's sunny weather to participate in the legendary "converging rally", part of the 2017 "Beetle Sunshine Tour". For the 13th time, the largest event of its kind world wide, attracted Beetle fans from all over Europe. Among the participants were many individualized models, spruced up to testify to the unique status of the Beetle as modern style icons.
