Short and just good. The Norisring been has been a highlight on the DTM calendar for many years. On Nuremberg’s ‘Zeppelinfeld’, the DTM drivers are regular guests – and they love it. Since the DTM debut back in 1984, only two seasons didn’t feature a Norisring round: 1985 and 1986. It’s the atmosphere that turns this event into something special. The Norisring is the only still existing street circuit in and from the huge grandstands made of stone, the spectators can see nearly the entire racetrack - with the fact that the races at the Norisring are usually held in midsummer adding to the outstanding atmosphere between Grundig-Kehre and Dutzendteich.
Enthralling race action and far more
A DTM weekend is far more than just a motor-racing event. Apart from to the enthralling race action provided by DTM and the top-class race series in its support programme, visiting the paddock represents a particular highlight. There’s a lot to be watched and in addition, the DTM aces will be available for autographing sessions and rounds of interviews. And there will be top-class concerts featuring renowned musicians. To cut a long story short: a memorable event for the entire family.
The city: Nuremberg, the home of the legendary Norisring and the second-biggest city of Bavaria, is located in the heart of Franconia. A true must-see is the restored medieval city centre including the mighty ‘Kaiserburg’ (Emperor’s castle). Apropos: here, you also will find the planet’s oldest Bratwurst restaurant, established back in 1313 – the cradle of the famous ‘Nürnberger Bratwurst’ that was already enjoyed by Nuremberg’s most famous son, Albrecht Dürer.
The circuit: The only street circuit of the DTM calendar, built every year extra for the race, the shortest DTM circuit on German soil, a pedestrian tunnel below the circuit allows the spectators to get to the stone grandstand.
Grandstand tip: ‘S-Kurve’: Here, door-to-door battles are guaranteed. View of the chicane and the end of the home straight.
Culture tip: Most definitely, the medieval city centre with the castle, the Albrecht Dürer House as well as the Gothic churches St. Lorenz and St. Sebald represent the highlights of Nuremberg. The cosy atmosphere between frame houses and cobblestone pavement has inspired every visitor of Nuremberg, to date. At the same time, the city also features several culture highlights: the ‘Germanische Nationalmuseum’, for instance, is the biggest culture-historic museum in the German speaking countries. The latest information on expositions, events and other places of interest is available in the World Wide Web at: http://go.nuernberg.de. A universal ticket for all the places of interest of Nuremberg as well as the city’s public transport is the ‘Nürnberg Card’.
A culinary must: The ‘Nürnberger Bratwurst’! These sausages that aren’t bigger than a finger are a protected trademark and mustn’t be produced anywhere else than in Nuremberg’s urban area. Everywhere in the historic city centre you will find Bratwurst kitchens that serve this specialty – usually as a dish comprising six sausages and sauerkraut. Nonetheless, you also can get them as triple in a bun. They are a true culinary delight!
Careful, Slang: a Seidla = a beer, allmächt na = Oh my god, fei = filler word that can’t be translated, Nämberch = Nuremberg.
For partygoer: The major part of Nuremberg’s night life takes place in the historic city centre. There, particularly below the castle and in the ‘Weißgerbergasse’, you will find numerous pubs, bars and clubs. And in summer, enjoying the city ambience in one of the countless beer gardens is a really great experience.

Shopping: Nuremberg has got one of Germany’s biggest and oldest pedestrian areas. Here, in the southern part of the medieval city centre, you can get anything your heart desires. One of Nuremberg’s attractions with a special ambience is the ‘Handwerkerhof’. Surrounded by towers and walls of the medieval city fortification, the ‘Little Town at the King’s Gate’ invites to enjoy an eventful shopping trip. It’s really amazing to see what is going on in the small workshops, shops and alleyways and what a great number of adorable special goods can be admired and purchased, here. Tradition-rich craftsmen such as pewterers, purse makers, pottery makers, gold and silver smiths, stained-glass artists, gingerbread bakers and puppet makers have established their workshops in gorgeous frame houses and demonstrate their skills.
