Schönau im Mühlkreis, 27th of January 2014:

For those who, due to the weather, do not want to sleep in a tent: About 4 km from Prandegg, Pension Aumayr, in Oberndorf, Tel.: 043/(0)7261/7220 still has rooms available.

And just to get in the mood, a few impressions of the terrific Tauerntreffen, which took place last weekend for the first time in a new location, at the “Oberst Klinke Hütte”. Around 100 motorcycles struggled their war up the forest road at best winter conditions. It started snowing on Thursday evening and did not stop until today. Real heroes are those guys from Italy, France or even Spain, who are heading in the snow disaster with solo motorcycles, passing the Tauerntreffen on their way to the Elefantentreffen.

Here are some impressions of the Tauerntreffen:

See you on the castle ruin Prandegg!


Comfortable Camping

Bestseller motorcycles...
.. feeling comfortable
Italian primadonna on strike
A Spanish driver knows the solution.

Art of Nature

The mirror is somewhat rusty, guess why

As usual: URAL as its best under heavy conditions

OK, lets go home...


The date is chosen because on the first weekend in February there are a lot of winter meetings. The biggest and most famous Elefantentreffen and the Tauerntreffen which have become quite big in the last few years.
On this weekend we want to go the extra mile and offer a Ural meeting for winter drivers, an alternative for those who are looking for something different. Without big organisation, without big effort, without big hoopla from our side. The tavern has a wonderful friendly atmosphere. Franz Leiter, the inn keeper ensures a warm welcome for all. http://www.taverne-prandegg.at/.

In the castle ruin of  Prandegg there is normally snow at the beginning of February and a guarantee of cold conditions. Within the grounds of Prandegg there are good places for camping, we can also sleep on the galleria in the dining area of the tavern. In the surroundings area of Prandegg there are also cheap rooms.
We will definitely have a heavy winter tour of the area. We know all the hidden lanes and tracks in the area. There is not a single flat place in the whole region, there are piles of natural adventures at our disposal. For sidecars without sidecar drive it is better not even to start the engine.

Of course every sidecar driver is welcome, we do not want Ural and Dnepr exclusively.  Visitors with solo bikes are also welcome, maybe we can convince one a few disbelieving heroic solo riders to become a sidecar driver. For visitors from far, very far away, who arrive with trailer, we recommend to hide the trailer in the village Pregarten. The landscape of the last 22 km ride to the castle is really very attractive.


Registration for winter meeting:  office@ural.at


We are looking forward to a small, uncomplicated and comfortable meeting. Because at the same time there are more famous meetings, we expect about 50 participants. There is  no entrance fee (the Innkeeper will of course charge you for beer and food).

Winter as ist should be..

Firewood, probably not sufficient for the meeting

The cheap rooms...
Room enough for stunning trips
