The Unimog-Club Gaggenau e.V. Celebrates Its 25th Anniversary

There are many stories surrounding the “Universal-Motor-Gerät” – also known as the Unimog – from Mercedes-Benz. From helping to fight forest fires in the South of France, as an expedition vehicle in the vast expanses of the Gobi desert or as a reliable service provider for local authorities. There is hardly another commercial vehicle that is as popular as the Unimog and there is no other vehicle that appears in so many different guises. The Unimog-Club Gaggenau e.V. (UCG), which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, shows just how much enthusiasm surrounds this 70 years-old vehicle concept.

The Club was founded around the idea of sharing the fascination with this outstanding automobile in a community. The founding Chairman and initiator of the group, the former head of Communication at the Mercedes-Benz Gaggenau plant, Michael Wessel, initially had in mind to create a regional club for members within 25 km of Gaggenau, but soon the club life was accessible for everyone with many Unimog enthusiasts across national borders to join the association from Gaggenau.

From the small industrial town of Gaggenau, which will celebrate “125 years of automotive construction” in the upcoming year, a network of regional groups with an active club life throughout Germany has been formed over the years. The Unimog-Club Gaggenau e.V. developed into an international association of over 6,600 Unimog and MB-trac friends in 34 countries of the world.
