You are asking yourself what will happen at the 18th international "Alarm for Cobra 11" fan meeting? E.g. if the actors of the series will be there? Or if you can watch the shooting of some scenes live
Then you are exactly right here at the FAQ! So that you will not be disappointed by your first fan meeting, here are the most frequently asked questions and related answers. We ask you to read the following FAQ carefully and if you still have a question which has not been answered, you can contact us by mail.
Are the actors in the series coming to the fan meeting?
First and foremost we organize our international "Alarm for Cobra 11" fan meetings to facilitate the exchange of fans among each other. Accordingly, we would like to emphasize that this is a fan meeting, in which the fans of the series act with each other and not a launch, as was the case with the "Cobra 11 Fanday".
In the context of the fan meeting, however, there is the possibility that there are program points where some series actors are to be found on site. However, we as the official fan club and organizer of the fan meeting guarantee in no way that performers of the series will be on site and explicitly point out that there were in the past more fan meetings where no series starters were to be found.
Where and when is the fan meeting?
The 18th international "Alarm for Cobra 11" fan meeting will be from the 25th to the 27th of September 2020 in Kall-Urft (near Euskirchen, NRW). It's possible that we can make a trip near Cologne on Saturday.
How much is the partcipation fee?
The participation fee for the fan meeting 2020 will be around 100 Euro including overnight stay and 70 Euro without overnight stay for each person. We will announce the exact amount of the participation fee at start of the registration phase.
How can I register for this year's fan meeting?
Unfortunately, it is not yet possible to register for this year's fan meeting. The registration phase is expected to start in spring 2020.
What kind of program can I expect?
As in the previous years, we will not publish the planned program in advance. We will put together a program for the weekend around the RTL action series "Alarm for Cobra 11". On Saturday there's a possibility that we will make a trip near Cologne. To get a glimpse of how such a program might look like, we recommend a bit of browsing through the reports of previous fan meetings: to the reports
Does the fan meeting include the same program every year?
No, the program varies every year and may change due to external circumstances until shortly before the start. We as the official fan club are trying to make through various program points each fan meeting versatile and unique to offer long-term visitors every year a new experience.
How is the weekend organized by time?
The participants arrive on Friday evenings and can, after successful registration with the organizing team, get to know each other in a relaxed atmosphere.
On Saturday, after a hearty breakfast, the main program takes place. Depending on the duration of the program is interrupted by the lunch or ended by this. After dinner, small events or self-organized actions often take place in the property.
On Sunday, after a common breakfast, the bags are packed and the participants have to leave the accommodation.
What's the difference between the "Fanday" and your fanmeeting?
The "Cobra 11 - Fanday" was organized for the first time in 2017 by RTL and Produktionsfirma action concept. 300 fans were drawn by a lottery and were given the opportunity to look behind the scenes of the production company and to participate in an exclusive program on the site of action concept for one day. The program included an insight into the various areas of production, an autograph session with the cast of the series and a spectacular stunt show.
We as the official "Alarm for Cobra 11" fan club are volunteering and try to offer the fans of the series a platform for a mutual exchange with the international fan meetings, which extends beyond our forum. Our fan meetings are compiled, planned, organized and carried out by fans for fans. The accompanying program and the organization we put in our spare time on the legs, in order to be able to present the fans every year again a special weekend in the context of Germany's most successful action series.
Since the beginning of the fan meetings in the year 2000, we are actively supported by the production company action concept in the program design, which is why we had in the past already visited the production company or cinema premieres of various pilot episodes in the program. Such special program items are of course an additional highlight, but we are not guaranteed.
We as an official fan club, however, are working to make through various program points each fan meeting versatile and unique to offer long-term visitors every year a new experience.
