Green Hell Driving Days - four days of tourist drives in a row


From 16 - 19 June, the first Green Hell Driving Days of the year will take place at the Nürburgring. For four days in a row, from morning to evening, everyone can take the legendary Nordschleife under their own wheels. The barrier opens for the first time at 8 a.m. on Thursday, 16 June. Driving will be in accordance with the German road traffic regulations. Traditionally, the Green Hell Driving Days take place twice a year.

The long tourist driving weekend will again attract Nürburgring fans from near and far. Anyone in possession of a driving licence and a properly registered car or motorbike can drive during opening hours. Visitors can top up their credit for the ride online at any time. All that is needed is an account, which can be easily created. Access to the track is then possible via QR code. Top-ups can be made online at any time and from anywhere. Every user has full transparency over the transactions.

Since the tourist drives take place according to the road traffic regulations of Germany, there are fixed rules for participation. For example, overtaking is only allowed on the left. In addition, behaviour that endangers traffic, such as drifts or stopping times, is prohibited. To ensure that driving fun and safety come first, the Nürburgring employs extensive safety personnel around and on the track. The applicable rules are available - among other things as an international explanatory video - here and on the screens at the race track.
