Turn-by-turn guide to Jackie Stewart’s infamous Grune Holle (Green Hell) – der Nurburgring Nordschleife, including full color aerial images of the entire 20.832 km circuit. Updated 2nd Edition now shows the ideal line. Built in 1927, high in the Eifel Mountains around the ancient village and castle of Nuburg, the exceptionally long Nurburgring was originally conceived to provide a showcase for Germany’s auto racing talent. For 50 years, ‘Ring fever continued to grew, and the Nordschleife (the northern loop) would become the most famous Grand Prix circuit in history. Sadly, Grand Prix racing ended forever on the ‘ring when suspension failure on Nikki Lauda’s Ferrari led to his terrifying crash in the 2nd lap of the ’76 German Grand Prix. But today, any licensed driver with a road-legal car or motorcycle can still experience Jackie Stewart’s infamous Grune Holle for only 22 Euro each lap.
