Arrival & Parking

How to get to the Nürburgring

Directions to the Nürburgring

The Nürburgring is located approximately 90 kilometers southwest of Cologne and approximately 60 kilometers northwest of Koblenz directly at the B258.

Traffic management system

A traffic guidance system will be installed around the Nürburgring. Parking spaces for all participants who do not participate in the 24-hour race are located in Parkzone B and are signposted. The 24-hour participants follow the color coding system. There are two access zones:

  1. red and yellow; lots in the Grand Prix paddock and pit area
  2. blue and green: lots along the Grand Prix circuit

The color of your entry zone is documented by the color of your entry tickets. On the grounds, the differentiation into e.g. light blue and dark blue will be made and become relevant. You will be instructed accordingly by staff. See also the entrance map.

Recommended directions:

From the direction of Cologne follow the A1 to the end of the motorway, continue in the direction of Ahrhütte and from there continue on the B258.

From the direction of Trier or Luxembourg: A 48 to the Ulmen exit, from there take the B 257.

From Koblenz or Bonn: A 61 to the Wehr exit, from there continue on the B 412 until just before the Nürburgring, then turn onto the B 258.

Address for navigation systems

Enter “53520 Nürburg” (Eifel) as address in navigation systems – Otto-Flimm-Straße if necessary. However, the signs in the immediate vicinity of Nürburg are explicit.

Parking at the Nürburgring

Visitor, amateur races, touring, etc.

Parking lots B2, B2a, and B3 are available for all participants. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday a parking flat fee of 8 € is charged, which must be paid either when entering or exiting the parking lot. If you park your vehicle on Friday and leave on Sunday, you will only have to pay once!

Participants of the 24h races

The 24-hour teams and individual riders (road bike and mountain bike) will receive tickets for entry to the Grand Prix paddock 10 days before the event by mail. Entering is organized the same as in the past two years. Please refer to “Entering the paddock” for more information.

Additional free parking is available in the Dunlop bend within the area of the Grand Prix circuit. To do so, access via FSZ II and carry a copy of the booking confirmation for a 24-hour team as proof of identity.

Pick-up of the participant documents on Friday

Those who would only like to pick up participant documents on Friday, can park free of charge starting from 4 p.m. in the parking lot B1. However, the vehicle must be removed from the car park by 11 p.m. at the latest, as this car park will then be closed.

Parking is free for one hour in the multi-storey car park underneath ring°boulevard. Afterwards parking fees will be charged.
