Here’s the current situation with Green Hell Guides tours and COVID-19. Green Hell Guides continues to operate to help North American clients achieve the dream of experiencing The Nürburgring to the fullest. Given the current situation we don’t have any tours scheduled at this time. However, we will be looking at potential tours in the summer/fall timeframe. We are also offering self-guided tour services now.
Here’s some information on the current situation. Tours often include VLN races or the N24 race and these have been rescheduled as a result of the pandemic. April 30 public driving did resume. If you can safely reach the Nürburg area, track car rental, hotels and restaurants can accommodate you with social distancing procedures that have been implemented. Here’s a bit more from Dale Lomas at Bridge To Gantry on what the current experience is like.
If you are considering visiting The Nürburgring during this time, but are uncomfortable with an embedded tour guide from Green Hell Guides along, we can offer self-guided tour services. We will consult with you on your itinerary, handle your reservations and provide documentation to guide your tour.
As guide-led tours resume, Green Hell Guides will follow appropriate procedures like masks and social distancing to ensure safe, in-person tours as well. As always, we work with you to customize your tour to meet your needs. This includes any virus response requirements to ensure your safety and comfort.
That’s the latest on Green Hell Guides tours and COVID-19. We at Green Hell Guides hope you and your families are safe and healthy during these times. We look forward to assisting with your Nürburgring-related vacations!
Happy New Year, Nürburgring fans! Winter is still upon us. It’s a good time to look forward to 2018 trips to The Ring, fondly recall past trips and drive virtual laps to tide us over until the spring. While reviewing 2017, I’ve decided to make some changes at Green Hell Guides.
These changes impact the types of services we provide our clients, but not the customer focus and quality that they’ve come to expect! So that we can concentrate all our efforts on personalized tours, we’re discontinuing our teleconference-based trip consulting sessions and our single itinerary public group tours.
This gives us the opportunity to provide the greatest level of personal attention to our clients that engage us for the perfect Nürburgring vacation. Please do contact us with any and all questions about your potential Nürburgring trips and we’ll be happy to answer your questions and customize an itinerary that best suits your preferences and budget.
Where Can I Get More Detail?
I’ve updated our services and prices page accordingly. You may also notice a few other visual and content changes as we spruce things up for the new year. Here’s to a safe and fun year at The Nürburgring in 2018! I can’t wait to see you at the track!

The overcast sky and green hues the track is famous for feature prominently in the picture. A subtle “Green Hell Guides” text shows in the upper right hand corner of the picture.
This is the first time that Green Hell Guides merchandise has been available to anyone outside of our tours. Be one of the first to show up at your next track day or cars and coffee event sporting Green Hell Guides gear!

Good question! What does a Green Hell Guides typical Nürburgring tour itinerary look like? Using our upcoming trip to the 24 Hours of Nürburgring in May as an example, here you go:
Did you know that Green Hell Guides offers gift certificates? They are a fantastic option if you’re trying to come up with Christmas gift ideas for the auto enthusiasts or motorsports fans in your life. You pick the amount, the gift certificate never expires and the recipient can use it towards any of our services from consultation to personal guided tours. You’ll find details on our services page, but you can also just click the PayPal button below.
This question generally comes from two different perspectives:
1) You're a motorsport, automotive or motorcycle enthusiast, but you don't have a lot of track driving experience and you're a bit intimidated by the world's most challenging racetrack. You want to experience all The Ring has to offer, but you're not certain you want to be behind the wheel on the Nordschleife.
2) You're a spouse, partner, significant other or friend of somebody who REALLY wants to go to The Nürburgring and you've agreed to (or are considering to agreeing to) come along on the trip.
So people keep asking me this question and I wanted to address it. It will be in the Spring of 2015 and likely in May or June. I’d like to get more specific, but the schedule of Nürburgring tourist days 2015 will not get posted until late February or early March. Once the calendar is provided, Green Hell Guides will set the dates, publicize the tour and begin soliciting participants.
Keep in mind that you’re welcome to put a deposit down to hold your place even before the dates are set and the deposit is 100% refundable. Also remember that you can have Green Hell Guides help you plan your own individual trip to The Nürburgring if you’d prefer to go by yourself or with your own group instead of with our small group of enthusiasts.
