The Collen Challenge
A household name for many years. The first edition was held in 2009 and since then The Collen Challenge has been a regular part of the CarChallenge program.
The Collen Switzerland
September 10 to September 14, 2022
Start and finish in Switzerland
The Collen Austria
4th of September until the 9th of October 2021
Start and finish in Austria
We strive for good, clean and comfortable. We spend the night in appealing, regional hotels where attentive staff pamper us. In Switzerland and Austria, we have selected 5 beautiful hotels per Collen Challenge that meet these criteria.
This also applies to the food. The local food is in the center of attention and we enjoy eating among the local population. Nowhere does a cheese fondue taste better than in Switzerland, and nowhere does the Apfelstrudel taste better than in Austria. Dining is often done with the whole group, although this is not an obligation. You are free to dine outside the hotel yourself.
During The Collen Switzerland we drive by far the most kilometers in Switzerland. A trip to one of the neighboring countries is conceivable, but we always spend the night in Switzerland anyway. During The Collen Austria we also drive (almost) all kilometers in Austria. We also spend the night in Austria every day.
On some days we also present a “ leisure route ”. A stage that is just as beautiful, but takes you back to the hotel earlier.
