DRIVE THE NÜRBURGRING – TOURISTENFAHRTEN

What is Touristenfahrten?

​Touristenfahrten, or “Public driving”, at the Nürburgring is a tradition that dates back to the very birth of the circuit in 1927. It’s arguably the single most amazing thing about the ‘ring and a major reason for it’s global popularity. Most people who drive the Nurburgring do so in a Touristenfahrten (Public Driving) session. These sessions are available on both the Nurburgring Nordschleife and Nurburgring GP Track. Anybody and everybody can be seen lapping the circuit on a Sunday, from motorcycles to camper vans. It’s easy to become addicted to the thrill of the ‘Green Hell’!

Touristenfahrten information at a glance

  • When most people drive the Nurburgring, they do so on these sessions!
  • Public road rules apply; speed limits in sections, overtake only on left, road-legal vehicles only
  • Open in the evenings during the week, full days on weekends (Can change depending on events, so check for times!)
  • You share the track with all sorts of public traffic, including motorcycles, vans and even large buses
  • Full Time Driver Instruction is not allowed on these sessions, taxi laps are only possible through official providers.
  • If you want to do lots of laps, or really improve your track knowledge then we would suggest looking at entering a track day – more about track days on this page!

Choose Touristenfahrten if:

  • You want to do from “only a few laps” to multiple laps.
  • Your time schedule is limited, and you can only be here on a certain day but still want to drive the circuit.
  • You don’t mind sharing the circuit with other cars, potential first timers and motorcycles (!)
  • You’re not sure exactly what you want, then this is probably what you want to do!

Which Circuit?

Remember – there are two circuits at the Nürburgring! Touristenfahrten Public Driving Sessions are available on both the longer Nordschleife and the Formula One Grand Prix Circuit.

  • 21km long (13 miles)
  • Normally open from 5pm – 7pm on weekdays, and 8am – 7pm on weekends (See opening times below)
