Hi all, I am heading to Germany this June for a couple of weeks, I may be staying at the Nordschleife for about 6 nights, hopefully at a hotel with a view of the track. My initial problem is that I was hoping to hire a car to do at least one lap, now I looked at the tourist drive dates and the website shows that it is closed for "tourist drives" on every day and every month from June onwards for the rest of the year. Is this just that they don't show the dates this early? Although there are a couple of months from now I think that have very few tourist days (maybe 4 days in a month). I am there from the 29th of June to the 5th of July, the 3rd is a "PistenClub" private track day and the 4th is the VLN race which I am looking forward to but the first few days (Mon-Thur, 29th-2nd) show nothing on, I'm hoping the track isn't completely closed, anyone have any idea?
Also I'd like some advice on what I could do for this whole week at the Nordshleife. I am aware it is sort of in the middle of nowhere, I can get many many hours of enjoyment going to all the different spots and just watching cars, can I hire a bike anywhere because I'd love to ride around the beautiful area. Are there any other good activities? Places of any sort worth seeing within 1-2 hours away max (I have a car for this week so I can go anywhere)
Any advice or general info would be much appreciated! Thanks!
