How to get to Nürburgring without a car

After moving from Argentina to Germany I am currently living in Cologne. Only 85kms away from the Nürburgring!

Even if there are no races now I would love to go to the ring°werk (Nürburgring’s indoor theme park) but I see no option (either in Google Maps or the Nürburgring website) on how to get there if it is not by driving.

If anyone knows of any alternative I will appreciate you could share it with me.

it is on a bus route, but from the koln central station it's about 4-5 hours by public transport. if you go to bahn.de and put in nurburg welcome center as a final destination, it gives you options to the lindner hotel which is just across the street.

you would be better hiring a car from the airport for a few days if you have a driving licence you can use in the eu.

when i've had to travel without a vehicle from the circuit i've had to get a taxi to a main railway station like koblenz to be efficient with time which wasn't cheap at all. you can maybe save some money by going to somewhere like bad neuenahr (the last train station on the recommended route) and then avoiding the buses but you'd want to find a taxi ahead of arriving and have a return booked too.

The cost of trains and taxis will exceed the cost of hiring a car, it will be vastly more hassle, slower and harder to get to the interesting bits. Driving in Germany is easy, the roads and signs are great and Nürburgring itself is very accessible…by car

Thank you both for your replies! Now it is clear to me that I was not missing any magical solution. Being only 85kms away made me feel like there had to be another way of getting there.

The same happens with Spa Francorchamps. I can easily get to Aachen by train, but then, there are only 55kms impossible to do in any other way.

I plan to get my German license before my international one expires. I guess a rental car will be the way to go. I am still really happy I am finally on this side of the Atlantic with so many motorsports events nearby.
