HockenheimRing Museum...

HockenheimRing Museum

This is a small museum but it is also an old museum and has a ton of motorcycles and interesting cars. Mostly formula cars as you can see. IF you are into bikes I say stop by…. But it is not really a must see place, like some of the other “big” German auto maker museums (ie: BMW, MB, Porsche & Audi and VW).

Hockenheim’s museum is how German museum’s use to be. Just the cars and bikes on display. No mega amounts of money or high entrance fees. There is just something refreshing seeing a museum like this. Where you can smell the high octane gas (and oil leaking) dripping onto these cookie trays under the bikes. You can just take in the display and enjoy it. Modern museums like Nuerburgring Ereliebness Welt is the “other” extreme.

The museum is open every day! From 10am until 5pm. Except for race days.
Cost: 6 euros

Telefon: 06205 / 6005 oder 06205 / 950 212

The Museum and Racetrack is located about an hour south of Frankfurt. Where the A5 intersects the A6. Heidelberg is also close by. Just exit at Hockenheimring and follow the blue and white formula race car signs. The track is about a ten minute drive from the autobahn exit.

You can find pdf maps here to get to HockenheimRing…

Here are my photos, Enjoy!

Just follow these signs to get to the Track!








The museum is located just outside of SACHs curve grandstands.


And old aerial photos of the ‘Ring – I think from the 1970’s. I think the track is longer now. 4.6kmslong now I know. An F1 car can hit 303kph on the straight away! F1 races there this weekend btw.


A cool DTM car…




Did I mention there were a lot of bike there!






Diamlers worlds first motorcycle! His shop was in nearby Manheim. Only later did he move to Stuttgart.




















I have never seen a cut away motorcycle! Quite cool I think!

















Hands of F1 drivers…














Carrera slot racers…






















































F1 will be racing here this weekend!




The End!

I went to Hockenheim last year for the DTM season opener, it was spur of the moment and had a friend in town, was some fun. I didnt know there was a museum there at the track. I should've know though, europe has a thing for museums, lol.

Most tracks have museums. Hockenheim's is not known that well. There is only one little sign as you drive thru the overflow parking area that there is a museum. Its right wafter that main traffic circle on the left. IF you pass thru the public cemetary you've gone too far.

Gotta love the Krauts.... who builds a cemetary right next to a race track! :")

Hey - Sylon.... you have been to NuerbrungRing many times - right? As I was driving out from track... out from that Bundes strasse.... I turned left onto that road that leads to the (new) A61... on THAt road... I saw a sign for: Race Car Museum.... have you (or anyone else?) gone to that museum? I saw the sign just after the HocheAcht turn off.

I did not have the time to go investigate. Btw... has anyone gone to the Volcamo (signs say Vulcan Park) area over near Mayen near the Ring>?

Thanks.
