Nürburg. For families looking for a varied excursion destination during the summer holidays, the Nürburgring is the right choice. Numerous adventure offers and attractive overnight accommodation offer the perfect conditions for entertaining day trips or a real relaxing holiday. Rapid rounds on the kart track are just as possible as a relaxed trip into the Eifel countryside – on foot or by eBike. During the summer holidays, a visit to the Nürburgring is worth twice as much. A competition with a high-quality experience package as a prize awaits visitors young and old. All information, opening times and offers can be found on the website of the race track at: nuerburgring.de

The Nürburgring and the legend of “Green Hell” are known all over the world, yet for many this unique place is located right at the doorstep. During the summer holidays in North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate, the racetrack offers a lot of opportunities for families. The motorsport adventure museum “ring°werk” offers an exciting journey through the history of the Nürburgring. Visitors can expect breathtaking racing cars and legendary racing drivers, but equally action-packed hands-on offers. Those who want to take a look behind the scenes of the racetrack can take part in the backstage tour at selected dates – including visits to the winners’ podium or in the pit lane and lots of interesting facts about the Nürburgring. For a short detour and a view of the start-finish straight and the pit lane, the trial stand will also open to visitors.

Virtual race, real tourist ride or best time on the kart track
Anyone who wants to take the wheel and chase the best times can do so at the ring°kartbahn. Modern electric karts and a varied track layout ensure a fast and safe driving pleasure. Right next door there is the driving pleasure on the racetrack with your own vehicle during the tourist drives. For big and small racing drivers who would like to push a racing car to the limit, the Nürburgring eSports Lounge in the ring°carré offers a great opportunity. High-quality simulators make the virtual ride experience feel real. Visitors can choose between different racetracks and vehicles. And if you need a refreshment after exciting races, you will find here the Bitburger Gasthaus and from August the new restaurant “LUCIA – Pollo Italiano” – a versatile offer of food and drinks right next door. When the weather is good the outdoor gastronomy is the best choice.

Accommodation offers directly at the Ring
However, the Nürburgring is more than just a destination for the perfect day trip. In the region all around the legendary track there are numerous opportunities for active holidays in nature. Hiking trails – also around the Nordschleife – offer as much a distance from stressful everyday life as an excursion by bicycle. In future, there will be the opportunity to rent an eBike at the Nürburgring to explore the region around the Green Hell yourself. Since visitors cannot take advantage of all the offers during only one day, it is worthwhile to make use of the overnight accommodation options in the immediate vicinity of the racetrack. The Nürburgring holiday park managed by Lindner offers the perfect holiday conditions for families and groups with cozy cottages of various sizes.

From here, every holiday starts well rested into the day. If you want to take a souvenir of the beautiful time, you will find many different fan articles in the Paddock shop right next to the ring°boulevard.
