The Deutschland Rally
The Boundless Adventure
On Your Doorstep
One country - unlimited adventures. One week - countless experiences. 3,000 km - incredible variety. From the wild seas of the north to the highest mountain peaks of the south, through the enchanted forests of the east to the post-industrial high culture of the west. The Deutschland Rally is the ultimate adventure on your doorstep.
The Deutschland Rally is not simply going straight ahead. Every exciting detour is taken here. The "beloved" German motorways are taboo! You will take your own path along time-honoured avenues, alpine panoramic roads and windy coastal paths. Start in golden autumn at the craziest adventure rally right in front of your door and discover Germany as you have never experienced it before.
Your Old/New School vehicle, no GPS or navigation system, over 3.000 km in one week through the land of diversity!

The day prior all adventurers can already get to know each other at the pre-adventure-get-together and get in the mood for the upcoming adventures. The event will start around 18:00h.
Of course, all friends and fans are welcome.
At the start in the middle of Germany your team will be given the roadbook, packed with great stage suggestions, unbelievable challenges, fun & adventure.
The tasks and adventures have to be solved in the best possible way with your team until the finish. Creativity and talent for improvisation are the key.
The roadbook tasks are not mandatory!
On the way through Germany we celebrate with you two wacky rally parties in extraordinary locations.
At the official rally parties, we pitch our tents together and celebrate the adventure until late after sunset. Overnight stays in nearby hotels and other accommodations are also possible!
Where exactly remains our secret until the start...You'll find out in the roadbook.
In Ruhr Area, we'll celebrate the succesful completion of The Deutschland Rally with a big finish line event and of course we'll crown the winners.
The winning team of The Deutschland Rally Roadbook Competition will win a starting spot for a future SAC rally of their own choice at a value of up to €1.090!
No obligations, just a load of possibilities!
With the SAC Live Tracking App for all rally teams, your friends, relatives and colleagues can follow your team live during the rally.
With the app you can view your driven route as well as rally statistics and add photos, videos and comments to the individual stages. You can also create a professionally designed photo book with all your rally memories after the rally.
Road conditions during the rally can vary greatly:
- From asphalted avenues through dense coniferous forests
- over gravel roads up to lonely mountain passes
- up to the Bochum slalom-punch-hole course...
Everything is possible & and there is something for each taste!
From nudist camping on the Brandenburg lakes, to glamorous beach hotels on the coast and cosy mountain guesthouses, everything is allowed! You can decide what you like best on each stage, depending on your spirit of adventure and budget.
At the end of each stage you will find a cosy hotel or guesthouse, so camping is not a must. The spontaneous search for a suitable place to stay on the respective stage is usually no problem during the rally period.
In your rally kit you will find everything that belongs to an official rally:
- Rally vehicle branding with official The Deutschland Rally logos and start numbers
- Rally T-Shirts
- more great The Deutschland Rally Merchandising
The rally kit will be sent to your team four weeks before the start.
Creativity pays off!
Teams with extravagant costumes and eye-catching vehicle decorations will be awarded extra points by the rally jury.
Whether you dazzle your fellow drivers with slick racing stripes and fluttering flags or go full techie with flashing disco lights on your radiator, we’re looking forward to seeing how you bring it.
Anything goes, as long as it’s street-legal.
