Rhine area by car

I've got a whole days sightseeing next month and would like to see the Rhine Valley and some nice scenery; we are driving out from the UK on Thursday and need to get a hotel for Thursday night then end up near Nürburg on the Friday night (ready for a driving on the Nurburgring race track.

Can anyone suggest a scenic route in the area & where to stay.

Don't forget to check at www.nuerburgring.de if the Nordschleife is open for public driving that day. The most comfortable (and expensive) hotel at the Nürburgring is the Dorint. More special Hotel am Tiergarten (www.am-tiergarten.de) at Nürburg. The hotel is owned by the family Schmitz, their daughter Sabine is driver of the BMW-Ring-Taxi and actually holds the track record. Staying there could be a possibility to chat with her or some other drivers who stay at the hotel or the restaurant frequently.

When you are coming from London (or from northern Germany/Belgium) and if you have enough time for a sidetrip. Leave the motorway A61 at Meckenheim, follow the smaller roads to Dernau in the Ahr Valley and drive up to Ahr Valley, direction to Altenahr, Adenau, Nürburgring. The Ahr Valley is an extremely beautiful wine-growing region with steep vineyards along the river.

For visiting the Rhine Valley you drive from Nürburg to the A 61 again and follow it until Boppard, there you drive down to the Valley and follow the Rhine direction to Bingen. Here starts the most impressive part of the Rhine. Tips for overnight-stays: Hotel Weinhaus Weiler at Oberwesel (www.weinhaus-weiler.de) or Hotel Trapp at Rüdesheim (to the ferry to cross the river) (www.hotel-trapp.de).

Probably our English website will also help you www.romantic-germany.info.
