Rangate Euro Tour 2018

This year's compact tour will take place over a week of Knowledge and Connecting in Nuremberg, Germany and the region of northern Bavaria.

2018 Itinerary



March 18: Arrival
Our group will meet at Nuremberg Airport (NUE).


March 19- 20 : Shop Tours
Our shop tours are a unique opportunity to get an all-access look at the shop floors of some of Europe's most well-respected solid wood joinery businesses. Woodworkers who have previously experienced the Euro Tour have taken the insights, shop layouts, and production processes seen on the TOUR and brought them home with them, implementing the same concepts in their own shops.


March 21 - 24 : Fensterbau/Frontale & Holz-Handwerk
Together, these two biennial shows are the biggest woodworking trade exhibition in the world, attracting over 110,000 visitors in 2016. It's the best place in the world to see everything on the cutting edge of the solid wood industry. Fensterbau focuses on the whole window and door market, while Holz-Handwerk ("Wood Handcrafting"") covers every kind of woodworking you can think of.


Our TOUR has limited space. So please call us at 888-810-2522 or email us before the end of 2017 to confirm you'll be there with us!

About the Euro Tour

We created the Euro Tour to help North American woodworkers access a new world of knowledge and insight. Over the last 7 years, we've seen the great impact the Euro Tour can have on the woodworkers who embark on the journey with us.

  • Understand Your Options: Because we go on all-access shop tours, there's no better time to see equipment, techniques, or layouts really work in a business setting. Everyone who takes the tour learns something valuable they can take home and implement at home for a valuable boost.
  • See the Cutting Edge: Most of world's best regarded manufacturers of woodworking tools and equipment are based in Europe. The Euro Tour is a chance to see their latest innovations first, and make a personal connection with equipment and tool suppliers.
  • In Good Company: Over the days of the TOUR, our group shares a camaraderie and enjoys some of the food, drink, and culture of Europe. It's very common for TOUR attendees to become friends and collaborate or refer each other for new business after the experience.

Shop Visits

During the shop visit days, our group of woodworkers from across the United States and Canada board a tour bus, and head to solid wood joinery shops in the region for all-access visits. This year, we're seeing a diverse group of shops across the Bavarian region, the heartland of German woodworking. At each visit, we get an up-close look at every part of the production process, from material handling to wood processing, to finishing. Many attendees take notes on the aspects of their own shop they're looking to optimize.

What many of our attendees don't realize until they experience the TOUR is that the time spent on the bus is a valuable experience too. We've seen woodworkers develop new connections that lead to collaborations, new business, and good old fashioned new friendships on the road. The Euro Tour isn't just about learning from our hosts- it's also about learning from each other.

Fensterbau Frontale

Fensterbau Frontale and Holz Handwerk are the world's largest trade exhibition for woodworking. If you're producing or thinking about starting to make doors, there's no better place to experience the latest in the industry, from machinery and equipment to questions of style and performance. Walking the show floor with Rangate's experienced team can help you make the most of the experience.

Holz-Handwerk

Holz-Handwerk is one of the world's largest woodworking tradeshows, covering machinery, equipment, and supplies for all things solid wood. It's a great place to see innovation in the woodworking industry first hand, and even try them out for yourself. If you've been investigating purchasing European-made equipment or machinery, it's an excellent time to speak with manufacturers directly.
