FALL TREFFEN 2023 - Treffen Gateway to the West
Treffen Gateway to the West - Touring the Mississippi River Valley
On behalf of the members of the St Louis Region and the Treffen North America staff, we invite you to join us for Treffen Gateway to the West - Touring the Mississippi River Valley. Experience four days of touring, fine dining, and exploring as we return to the Midwest on September 20 – 24, 2023. You may know it as the home of the Gateway Arch, but St Louis is also a city rich in history where Lewis and Clark launched their expedition and is unique in its jazz music and French creole influence than its New Orleans cousin. We will be touring the surrounding Missouri wine region and Mississippi River Valley.
Our host hotel is the luxurious, AAA 4-Diamond rated Ritz-Carlton in the trendy suburb of Clayton; we were able to negotiate a lodging rate of $235, which will likely be the last low rate we see for Treffen going forward. Casa Don Alfonso, the main on-site restaurant, was featured as 2021 Forbes’ best new Italian restaurant in America. There are 50+ restaurants within walking distance of the Ritz. The city and surrounding region have a strong German influence when immigrants moved into the area in the 1800s. With Oktoberfest opening that same week, it will be our theme in conjunction with our year-long celebration of 75 years of Porsche, so bring and wear your lederhosen and dirndls for this event. If you are heading to Rennsport Reunion from the east coast, make Treffen Gateway your intermediate stop as you head to California.
We will update the rest of the Treffen website with Treffen Gateway information soon after we complete Treffen Georgia Mountains. So, plan to "Meet me in St Louis" for some great drives and fun this fall and enjoy local favorites such as toasted raviolis and gooey butter cake. Registration opens on Wednesday, June 28 at 3 PM ET.
* We will continue to add a page much like this one for future Treffens to the website after we make new announcements for each new event.
