Pitstraat Nürburgring
This tour leaves at Hotel Lindental in Bad Bertrich, Bad Bertrich is a place in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate, and is part of the district of Cochem-Zell. At the same time as leaving Bad Bertrich we pass two tunnels in a row.
After about an hour through beautiful curves and forests, we arrive at the Nürburgring. The Nürburgring is a race circuit in Nürburg, in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate. On September 27, 1925 began the construction of the circuit around the village and the medieval castle Nürburg in the Eifel. The opening was on the weekend of 18 and 19 June 1927. The circuit is nicknamed 'The Green Hell'. Previously, the course took the riders over 28 km. It then consisted of the Nordschleife (22.8 km) and Südschleife (7.7 km). The Nürburgring Nordschleife is part of the old Nürburgring. 21 Grands Prix were held between 1951 and 1976. The former Nürburgring, which was only 20.8 km long, had killed five Formula 1 drivers at Grand Prix competitions and caused many others to suffer permanent injuries. The enormous circuit was built as a job-creation project in the 1920s around the village of Nürburg in the Eifel mountains to the southwest of Bonn. It officially contained 176 bends spread over the 20.8 km of the Nordschleife and 7.7 km of the separate Südschleife. The bends are known as Flugplatz, Aremberg, Bergwerk, Karussel and Pflanzgarten. There is plenty to see at the main stand of the circuit, there are old formula 1 cars and there are shops selling all kinds of stuff that have to do with racing or the Nürburgring. We drive on and arrive at Adenau, here you can watch the cars and motorcycles racing at the Nordschleife. We drive a bit along with the track and then go to the south at Herresbach. At Virneburg you can view The castle ruins of Virneburg, it is the ruin of a castle on the hill. Arrived at our next resting point the tourist town Cochem, Cochem is a town on the Mosel in Germany. It is located in the Land Rhineland-Palatinate. It is the Kreisstadt of the Landkreis Cochem-Zell. The city is a tourist town dominated by the mountain lock.
The Cochem castle was built in the 12th and 13th centuries and served as a protection for the city and the Mosel.
We continue our route and drive a bit further along the Moselle.

About this region
The Hunsrück (German pronunciation: [ˈhʊnsʁʏk]) is a low mountain range in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. It is bounded by the river valleys of the Moselle (north), the Nahe (south), and the Rhine (east). The Hunsrück is continued by the Taunus mountains on the eastern side of the Rhine. In the north behind the Moselle it is continued by the Eifel. To the south of the Nahe is the Palatinate region. Many of the hills are no higher than 400 metres (1,300 ft) above sea level. There are several chains of much higher peaks within the Hunsrück, all bearing names of their own: the (Black Forest) Hochwald, the Idar Forest, the Soonwald, and the Bingen Forest. The highest mountain is the Erbeskopf (816 m; 2,677 ft). Notable towns located within the Hunsrück include Simmern, Kirchberg, and Idar-Oberstein, Kastellaun, and Morbach. Frankfurt-Hahn Airport is also located within the region. The climate in the Hunsrück is characterised by rainy weather, and mist rising in the morning. Slate is still mined in the mountains. Since 2010, the region has become one of Germany's major onshore wind power regions, with major wind farms located near Ellern and Kirchberg. Nature-based tourism has increased in recent years and in 2015, a new national park was inaugurated. Culturally, the region is best known for its Hunsrückisch dialect and through depictions in the Heimat film series. The region experienced significant emigration in the mid-19th century, particularly to Brazil.
