As a race track, the Nürburgring is a living legend and is reverently called "Green Hell" by its fans. Today the ring is one of the most traditional and at the same time innovative motor sports tracks in the world. And one of Germany's most popular national monuments. Every year around two million visitors watch around 100 races and 200 other events here, such as DTM, the 24-hour race, and truck and vintage car races. www.nuerburgring.de
The Nürburgring also means backstage tours, driver training, off-road tours and tourist trips on the Nordschleife (North Loop). The extension of the Nürburgring to become an all-year leisure and business centre is the most important milestone in its history since the construction of the North Loop in 1927 and the addition of the Grand Prix circuit in 1984. The main modules of the 2009 Nürburgring Project are all-weather presentation and event areas, additional leisure facilities for fans and tourists as well as extended overnight accommodation capacities close to the race track.
The boulevard with shops run by leading car and component brands, the Welcome Centre with fan merchandise and tourist information, the indoor arena, a second business hotel, the Eifeldorf Grüne Hölle with a large entertainment and restaurant complex as well as the holiday village in nearby Drees. The new all-year leisure park ring°werk, an exciting mixture of a museum and a science centre showing the myth of the Nürburgring, motor sports and mobility, will delight young and old motor sports enthusiasts. Everyone feels like a racing driver here. With a 4-D cinema for the 24-hour race, an interactive laboratory, numerous simulators, an exciting multi-media theatre, a Formula One section and an historical exhibition.
The picturesque Eifel region with its many facets made up of volcanoes, forests and lakes and the winter sports areas in Nürburg and Jammelshofen are unmatched worldwide when combined with everything that is offered on the race track. This bipolar contrast makes the joint offers of the Ring and the Region something quite special.
