Just before 10 am, lots of children and their parents are standing in front of the Fendt Forum in Marktoberdorf, waiting for the doors to open at last. During the entire holidays, the place is a vibrant hustle and bustle. Some are going on a factory tour; others are watching films in the Fendt summer cinema, learning a little about the history of this agricultural product manufacturer; or taking their drivers licence on a pedal tractor course.
This is precisely what Ben Krämer and Julian Möhle intended to do outside. For the experienced pedal tractor drivers, Ben and Julian, getting the Fendt driving licence was a piece of cake. These two 5-year olds proved to be very skilful at driving over the ramp, and they also unloaded the logs like real professionals. After the Fendt Junior Expert Training Course, they proudly collect their driving licences and go on a few more circuits on the pedal tractor trail in their own Fendt safety vest.
Another highlight for many children is steering Fendt tractors on a large model of a farm over roads, fields and meadows. The 7-year-old, Max Knaier, is thrilled about the large range of Fendt tractors. He was most taken with the Fendt 1050 Vario. After sitting trial, he now has to seriously think about a purchase. And of course, he still has to convince his parents. Max is looking forward to trying out other toys, and going to the Bruder play corner with his friends.
The 9-year-old Marlene Hüster, however, is really taken by the large farm themed Playmobil play area. Marlene also comes from a farm and proudly talks about the hens, cats, dogs, cows, horses and even rabbits she has at home. Until now, there is no Fendt on their farm but one hopefully soon to come.
Another quick tour on the go-cart track and a photo in the Fendt photo booth as a souvenir perfectly round off a day at the Fendt Forum. There is an exciting programme for all tastes on a day out at Fendt, and even if the weather is bad, it makes an excellent excursion. Until 5th September, all Fendt fans are welcome to come to the Fendt Holiday Weeks.
