Arrow 1Addicts tour the Italian Alps: Sella 1.0 tour...

Dackel goes Dolomites in 2014...

Well... for the last few years, every summer - some of us Euro 1Addicts have met for an awesome driving tour experience. One that we will never forget! The last two years - we have met and driven the infamous Stelvio Pass. You can see our past Stelvio 1.0 and Stelvio 2.0 tours under my signature. But for this year, we all wanted to try something different. Enter Sella 1.0

First off, I want to say I could have not pulled off this tour with the help of my other Euro 1Addicts buddies: Aremis, Swadness, Mr Kleen, and gs/e60/1m? We each had something to offer up in the planning stages of this trip. In the end some of our team could not make the trip, that made it all the more bitter sweet.

The basic plan was that all of us would meet up at a central location in Italy and drive in convoy(style) to our hotel in the Sella Dolomites. We chose to meet up in Vipiteno, Italy and then continue to our hotel: Hotel Kolfuschgerhof in Corvara in Badia, Italy.

But some of us can't get enough of a good thing... and since a few guys were driving down from Belgium and the Netherlands... some of us decided to meet a few days earlier in Kaiserslautern(otherwise known to American's as K-Town!). Five of us met in K-town and then had one heck of a nice drive thru the Black Forest(the Deutsche Hoch Alpinestrasse, then thru Switzerland and then over thru Austria and down into Italy. It would be a GREAT trip!

To be honest I lost count of all the mountain passes we drove thru. All I know is we had a GREAT adventure. I am sure Luc aka @Artemis will post all the mountain passes we drove. We all had a blast driving the best roads Europe has to offer.

Some of the guys jokingly refer to me as: "Dackel Tours AG". I am already thinking how I am gonna top this year's tour! But, I already have some ideas on where to travel too. And over the winter and spring I will have to do some "hard" research, finding just the right place for us Euro 1Addicts for next year's tour.

Another nice thing is that while most of us drive a 1er... we did not limit our group to only 1er's. Anyone with a BMW was invited to come join us. We even had a 335i, a 428i vert and a Z4M join us. Only thing we required was a good attitude and a friendly driving style.

Don't forget to buy an Austrian Vignette - BEFORE entering Austria!! Instead of 8 euros for the Vignette you could end up paying 120 euro fine for not having one!!

Arrow Sunday/Monday's trip back home for me...

So on Sunday I did not want to brave the mega traffic back North into Germany... so I decided to head West. I really had no destination in mind. But I saw how close I was to Stelvio(~100kms) from Vipiteno, so I decided to head to Francesca's Post Hotel in Trafio, BZ - located at the base of Stelvio.

Btw... her brother Victor owns the Hotel at the top of Stelvio(Bormio) if anyone wants to visit. I highly recommend either hotel. You won't be disappointed.

After spending the night at Francesca's Post Hotel, I decided to drive up the "mountain" and say hello to Victor... then head back home to der Fatherland. I even made a nice GoProp video of the up and down runs. Going up Stelvio was quite nice until I got stuck behind two tour vans. I was SHOCKED to see the car's coming down the Pass to be covered entirely with a good coating of snow! The weather was chilly(~12' C) at 1K meters... but up at the top at 2,800meters it was only 2'C!!! And that was at noon!

After having a nice talk(and cappuccino) with Victor... I headed back down the mountain. Direction Nauders and Pfunds, Austria and then thru Innsbruck and up to Wattens and Meisbach.

Festung Nauders = Fortress Nauders on the Reich Pass. The Austrians are spending big bucks to move the highway around this historic landmark! I hope they don't ruin this fortress. It was very cool to visit it on our Stelvio 2.0 tour.

Café Winklstüberl an EXCELLENT place to eat or stay the night! You can not go wrong here! Plus this place is a stone's throw from the famous Tatzelwurmstraße in Oberaudorf. The Tatzelwurmstraße is Germany's version of the Tail of the Dragon! Not to be missed on a ED trip!

We did have a little bit better weather than you guys seeing the pictures.

Great roads over there, thats for sure! Thx for the coverage...
