Brenners fleet

The Brenners Fleet

Buckle up for a motoring tour through the picturesque, romantic countryside of the Black Forest. Historic car enthusiasts will be in heaven here at Brenners Park-Hotel & Spa. And right on our doorstep there are all manner of wonderful routes just waiting to be explored. For your very own nostalgic excursion, the three members of our Brenners Fleet, including our VW Samba "Oskar" and our VW Beetle "Herbie" are at your disposal.

VW Samba "Oskar"

"Oskar", the first member of the Brenners Fleet, is a special edition VW T1 minibus also known as a "Samba" bus. The history of the T1 began in March 1950 at the Volkswagen plant in Wolfsburg. The "chunky" look quickly became one of the key features of the T1 and, still to this day, makes it one of the most recognisable vehicles in the world. Thanks to its practical interior, it was from its early years a much sought-after vehicle and has over the course of time helped shape the image of many cultural movements. Having been lovingly restored, "Oskar" is now sharing his spirit of adventure with us and you are warmly invited to join him in his discovery-oriented lifestyle.

VW Beetle "Herbie"

"Herbie", a name inspired by classic films and a TV series, offers, particularly in the summer months, a nostalgic, open-top motoring experience through Baden-Baden’s charming environs. The Beetle nickname emerged in the 1950s and 1960s following the publication of an article in the New York Times. Today, the VW Beetle is a much-loved classic whose life began in Wolfsburg, Germany, and ended in Mexico in 2003 where the last model was produced. Travel back in time and savour a very special type of car journey. How about, for instance, putting the roof down and going for a spin through the Black Forest?
