There are many crazy ideas that young men might come up with over a boozy get-together. Buying a bus is certainly not the most common. But that’s exactly what ten guys from Wels-Land got into their heads in November 2021 after a few beers. After a short search on the Internet, the friends in Frankfurt also found a suitable vehicle: a roadworthy Mercedes bus for 3,500 euros. The plan was clear: the old bus should become a party bus.

More than half a year and countless hours of work later, it was done: The vehicle was turned into a top-class mobile bar. “We have a seating area in the back area, and in the middle, among other things, a beer tap with glass washer and sink,” says Tobias Schwarzenbacher from Stadl-Paura.

The party bus has a long journey behind it: a year ago, the boys picked up the bus from Frankfurt.

The vehicle was initially only intended as a separate party location and project among friends, but the plans have changed over time. “We could imagine renting the bus for birthdays or polterparties,” says the 21-year-old. For fun, the boys posted videos of the conversion on social media – with huge success. The clips were viewed more than eight million times on the TikTok video platform. Even the German television reported about the friends who founded the association “Duzz Bus Ltd.” have founded, reported.

The tax office demands 19,600 euros

In the autumn, the shock came: When registering the vehicle, the Austrian tax office demanded 19,600 euros NoVA (standard consumption tax). Actually, public buses in Austria are exempt from this tax, which is calculated according to CO2 emissions. However, the tax office sees the party bus as a car.

Seating area, bar and refrigerator: The “Duzz Bus” leaves nothing to be desired.

“It makes us sad to see that such a law is destroying all our work. We don’t want to drive a lot, a maximum of 1000 kilometers a year. The bus is currently standing there and rusting away,” says Lukas Fetz, one of the founders of “Duzzbus”.

In order to still be able to make their dream come true, the resourceful youngsters started a fundraising campaign on the Internet to collect 19,600 euros.

“We hope that this will help us to make it,” says Lukas. And then nothing stands in the way of the party.
