Sunday 8th September 2024 

The tour starts today for those taking a ferry crossing from Dover to Calais

It is a Sunday so the Autobahns should be relatively clear for a speedy run to the hotel and tour meeting point.  The BurgStadt Hotel situated on the edge of the picturesque town of Kastellaun is in the beautiful Hunsrück region of Germany nestled between the Mosel and the Rhine. Kastellaun is approx. 250 miles/4 hours from the Dutch ferries, or 325 miles/5.5 hours from Calais. Boeing 737 Simulator evening and ‘Meet and Greet’ by Simon at 18:30 at the BurgStadt Hotel.

Breakfast served at the BurgStadt Hotel, in the main restaurant. Tour briefing by Nick.

Today we tour the fabulous scenery of the Rhine Gorge. We will stop for a 2 course lunch (included in tour cost) at the Hotel Schloss Rheinfels, St. Goar. The suggested route is about 80 miles and takes about 3 hours of driving taking in the Fünfseenblick, Sankt Goar, Burg Rheinfels, Sankt Goarshausen, Lorch, the Niederwalddenkmal, the Hunsruck hills and valleys and a couple of ferries. Therefore take your time, stop frequently and take diversions if you want to ! Dinner will be at your leisure in one of the many small towns and villages along the Rhine valley.

 

Tuesday 10th September 2024 – Nürburg 

Breakfast served at the BurgStadt Hotel, in the main restaurant. Tour briefing by Simon.

Today we head up into the Eifel to explore the fabulous scenery around Nürburg (approximately 1 ¼ hours/50 miles via Pulgermuhle, Bruttig-Fankel, Ernst, Buchel). We recommend visiting the Nürburgring museum and climbing up to the top of the castle at the centre of the village. The whole area is a petrolheads heaven so there is plenty to see, including the compulsory picture of your car outside the BMW M Test Center. The Devil’s Dinner is a great place to hang out to watch cars brave enough to head out onto the Nürburgring. Brünnchen and Adenau are both nearby and are ideal for watching any track action. Subject to opening times (which will be published in early 2024) we hope there will be a chance in the evening for you to head out onto the Nürburgring – either in your car, in a hired track car, or a ring taxi. These are not included in the tour costs, and are undertaken at your own risk. At the end of the day head back for dinner at the hotel and overnight stay at the BurgStadt Hotel, Kastellaun.
