    Good Route between Stuttgart and Nurburg?

    Hi - I originally considered a large loop for the 4 days and 3 nights between factory delivery of my GT4 and Scuderia 7 at the Ring.  I currently have reservations in Dresden, Berlin, and Hanover. 

    But I am now thinking that is a bad plan, since I will be collecting my car in the afternoon after a factory tour and lunch and it seems that the amount of driving is a bit ambitious (i.e. 5 hours the afternoon/evening of the first day while still jet-lagged, sitting in LWB's, braking-in the car on the autobahn not great, etc.).

    So, I am now considering canceling those plans for the first 3 nights and instead going to Baden-Baden first night (short drive and will choose side roads where I can more easily drive at a proper pace and vary revs and speed as desired).  Second night maybe in Frankfurt, Bad Homburg, Heidelberg, Trier, or Open to any other suggestions?

    Third night maybe in Cologne (short drive to the Ring the next day)?

    If anyone has ideas for these or other nice destinations (including hotels, restaurants, roads, etc.) in the general region, I would love to hear them!

    Thanks!

    Baden Baden is a good choice, and the surrounding Black Forest has tons of quiet, twisty roads perfect for running in. Also a nice town with good places to eat. We've stayed in Heidelberg a couple of times either on the way to the 'ring or for Hockenheim - also recommended!

    +1 for Dave's suggestion about Baden Baden and Heidelberg.

    Re: Good Route between Stuttgart and Nurburg?

    Agreed, the B500 leads around all sorts of interesting places.

    As for in Baden Baden, Brenner's Park Hotel and Spa is excellent.  May want to check about self-park vs. valet, though.


    Re: Good Route between Stuttgart and Nurburg?

    Take your time please - most of the "Autobahn" (i.e. "A3" and "A5") on your way to NBR  do have constructions / repairs going on - not that funny at the moment and for the next weeks to come...

    What's the A61 like currently?  It would normally be a better choice than the northern stretch of the A5 for the run from Stuttgart or Baden-Baden to the Nuerburgring anyway? (Changing to A61 from A5 at Hockenheimring).

    A61, agree, could be the better choice for this part of the journey - nevertheless, further north on the A3 it is like the constructions never ends...I had a meeting in the Cologne area yesterday and it was not very pleasant to drive...

    Just got back from the Ring. Autobahn is a disaster. Construction work every other kilometer resulting in huge traffic queues.

    Grant, you better put the GT4 on a train and enjoy the view from a cosy train carriage Smiley

    +1, sadly, but I sort of agree...unless the exercise is on constant driving in 2nd gear at 25mph...


    Re: Good Route between Stuttgart and Nurburg?

    Thanks for the good tips, guys! Doesn't sound like running the car in at a low speed will require much restraint!

    Still, it is a GT4, it is new, and, it is yours ! Smiley You simply need take into account a bit more time than the GPS will suggest when you start your journey...
