TRAM-EM is teamwork

An event like the TRAM-EM is not possible without partners. Companies from industry and the service sector, radio and television producers and of course the Leipzig public transport company itself are helping to make our championship on May 21, 2022 in Leipzig a reality. We would like to thank all our partners and sponsors for this.

Logo TRAM-EM2022 Leipzig

The countdown is running. Seven more weeks until the 9th TRAM-EM in Leipzig. The preparations are already in full swing.

Today we’d like to present you the logo of this year’s championship. Blue and yellow the colors of the city Leipzig are dominated, plus the silhouette with the most famous buildings makes it unique. And in the center, quite clearly: the tram.

The tram has been rolling through the trade fair city for 150 years. We’d like to celebrate this with you! Let’s do it … on May 21, 2022 at the Augustusplatz in Leipzig, with you and many friends from all over the world.

Cancelation TRAM-EM2020/21

Dear TRAM-EM partner

The corona pandemic still have a firm grip on the world. A return to normal life does not seem to be in sight before end of the year.

Unfortunately, we are therefore forced to cancel the championship 2020/21 in Oradea, Romania.

The next scheduled TRAM-EM will take place on May 21, 2022 in Leipzig, Germany. Please save the date. We will inform you as soon as possible.

We are looking forward to a reunion,

Please stay healthy and optimistic!


Postponement TRAM-EM2020

Dear TRAM-EM fans,
Our survey among the participants of the TRAM-EM has showed that a majority of them welcome a postponement once again. In coordination with the host OTL, the public transport authority of Oradea, we have decided to postpone the championship to June 5, 2021.  We would like to invite you warmly to this special event.
We thank you very much for your flexibility and fidelity, and we are looking forward to seeing you all in June 2021 in Oradea.
Please stay healthy!

Displacement TRAM-EM2020

Now the TRAM-EM is hit as well… unfortunately, we have to inform you that this year’s championship TRAM-EM can’t take place like announced on May 9, 2020. The current development around the Corona pandemic forces us to this step. If participants can’t travel because borders are closed and flights are cancelled, an international festival like TRAM-EM makes no sense.
The good news! We could arrange a new date for the event in cooperation with the host OTL, the public transport authority Oradea.
On September 26, 2020 we will organize the 9th European Tramdriver Championship. We are looking forward to seeing you in Oradea.
Stay healthy!
