Welcome to the Unimog-Club Gaggenau e.V.
Dear club members and friends of the Unimog!
We would like to welcome you to our new english website.
We would like to bring you closer to our passion for the most beautiful and exciting universal engines from Mercedes-Benz. The care and preservation of these automotive contemporary witnesses is one of the main tasks of our club. The community is supported by a diverse range of events at regional and international meetings. Our annual international club meeting, the many meetings of the regional groups and our aftermarket attract Unimog friends from all over Europe again and again.
The Unimog-Club Gaggenau e. V. is today an international association of Unimog and MBtrac friends with over 8.000 members in 49 countries.
We feel responsible for collecting the diverse information on the history, technology and application of the various Unimog and MBtrac series, making this knowledge available to the members and at the same time maintaining the enthusiasm for a unique vehicle concept.
Have fun now on the new pages of the Unimog-Club Gaggenau e. V.

Re-opening of the Unimog Museum on 28 January 2023
After four weeks of complete closure and construction of the new exhibition, the museum was ceremoniously (re)opened and presented to the public on 28 January. More than 1,200 visitors came on Saturday and Sunday to get to know the new museum. In addition to an almost doubled exhibition space, the new exhibition shows the Unimog in its entire development with exhibits from all model series. And the presentation has also changed, there are now steles with screens where you can get detailed information about the respective exhibit. This new digital form of presentation was financed by the Unimog Club Gaggenau. There is a lot to discover in the Unimog Museum and certainly always something new in the future, so a visit is well worthwhile.

More than 8.000 members in the Unimog-Club Gaggenau e.V
October 2022: The numbers are impressive, because in the last five years an additional 1,400 members have joined the Unimog Club, which has Unimog fans from 46 countries. At the end of September, the eight thousandth member, Lukas Gerhold from Voitsberg / Austria, was welcomed. This means that the Regional Group Austria East has grown. Lukas Gerhold has an intense relation to the Unimog. This vehicle has accompanied him all his life on his parents’ farm, a Unimog 406 and 421 are still in use today, and in earlier times there was already a Unimog 401 and 411. And of course he lends a hand himself with maintenance work so that he can enjoy his Unimog for a long time to come.
