The club was founded on 15 May 1993. The primary consideration is not ownership of a Unimog, but rather enthusiasm for this unique vehicle. This can be expressed by e.g. a collection of Unimog models, stickers, advertising gifts or literature, or merely by an interest in the history of this all-rounder. A huge increase in membership numbers in recent years has made it necessary to form regional groups. There are now more than 30[nbsp] of these in Germany and neighbouring countries. The Unimog Club Gaggenau has been an officially recognised Mercedes-Benz brand club since 1999.
