Special Theme 2018: Bike Journeys

In 2018, the Holiday and Travel Fair will focus on cycling holidays

 - In 2018, the Holiday and Travel Fair will focus on cycling holidays

Whether young or old, sports enthusiast or couch potato: along with walking, skiing and swimming, cycling is one of Switzerland's most popular leisure activities. And holidays spent in the saddle are also becoming ever more popular here. That is why the Holiday and Travel Fair Bern will make the bicycle the central focus of the exhibition as a special theme from 11 to 14 January 2018.

Discover the heart of the 2018 special exhibition: the two cycling tracks in Hall 2.2. Try out the various models of our many exhibitors. Do you like to spend time in woodland and amidst nature? Then you shouldn’t miss out on the “Nature” track. Or do you prefer cycling in the city? Then the “Urban” track is just right for you. You can walk up our four-metre-high FunKubus – a wooden construction with a ramp – to gain a comprehensive overview of Hall 2.2.

At the Holiday and Travel Fair Bern, you can donate your bicycle to Velafrica. The organisation collects second-hand bicycles and has them repaired in social-enterprise workshops in Switzerland before exporting them to Africa.

As a study conducted by Velafrica shows, bicycles make it easier for people in Africa to access education and healthcare, and also open up economic opportunities. Those who own a bicycle can carry considerably more and cover much greater distances – they therefore gain more time for learning or for working their land.

Do you wish to support Velafrica? Then bring along your ‘retired’ bicycle to the Holiday and Travel Fair Bern. You will be granted direct access to the fair at the entrance and can park your bicycle in the designated area by the entrance area.
