Summer vacations at the Nürburgring: Experiences, events and recreation for the whole family


With its mix of adventure offers and exciting events, the Nürburgring is the perfect destination during the summer vacations. The whole family is always right in the middle of the action: Whether at breathtaking races, offers to drive yourself or a look behind the scenes of the legendary race track. The overnight accommodations also offer the best conditions for day trips or a relaxing vacation. And in the official #RingSommer competition, a high-quality experience package awaits all visitors as a prize.

During the summer vacations in North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate, there are particularly many opportunities at the Nürburgring for families and motorsport fans. A visit to the Motorsport Adventure Museum always offers an exciting journey through the history of the legendary racetrack as well as breathtaking racing cars, famous racing drivers and action-packed hands-on activities. If you would like to stand on the winners' podium high above the race track or learn all there is to know about the Green Hell in the pit lane, the backstage tour is just the thing for you. On the ring°kartbahn, big and small racers can go hunting for best times. Modern electric karts and a varied track layout ensure a fast-paced yet safe driving experience. 

From virtual racing experience to tourist drive
Anyone can drive a racing car at the limit at the Nürburgring eSports Bar in the ring°carré. High-quality and fully mobile simulators turn the virtual drive into an adrenaline adventure. Visitors can choose between different race tracks and vehicles. And in the real world, the most challenging 21 kilometers in the world await. The tourist drives take visitors on the legendary Nordschleife in their own vehicles and in compliance with road traffic regulations.

Thrilling motorsport events, virtual races or experience the Green Hell for yourself
Those who prefer to experience thrilling duels on and off the asphalt from the stands are in good hands at the numerous events during the summer vacations at the Nürburgring. Fast-as-an-arrow rallycross vehicles, legendary classic cars, gigantic trucks or exciting GT vehicles engage in hot duels on the weekends. Refreshments are available right next door at the Bitburger Gasthaus and at LUCIA - Pollo Italiano. A wide range of food and drinks awaits visitors here. In good weather also in the outdoor gastronomy.
Overnight accommodation directly at the Ring
However, the Nürburgring is more than just a destination for the perfect day trip. In the region at and around the legendary track, there are numerous opportunities for active vacations in nature. Hiking trails - also around the Nordschleife - offer just as much distance from stressful everyday life as an excursion by bike. Since visitors cannot take advantage of all the offers in one day, it is worthwhile to take advantage of the overnight accommodations in the immediate vicinity of the race track. The Nürburgring Holiday Park managed by Lindner offers the perfect vacation conditions for families and groups with comfortable vacation homes of various sizes. Souvenirs of the Nürburgring visit are available in the official ring°fanshop directly on the ring°boulevard.
