Follow road to the end 400 yards. Park car in car park by school. Walk up track to the right of the school and follow path for 800 yards uphill.
    WARNING this walk is not for the faint hearted, take a drink. If the gate to the track beside the school is open you are lucky and can drive up the hill.
    There is a Gate at the bottom of the uphill single track road which is closed nearly every weekend, but seems to be open for Monday afternoons and evening sessions. When it is open you can drive up and park 50m from the corner.

    Bergwerk
    This viewing point is very easy to find and close to the track, however as it is under trees, it is usually darker than most other viewing points on the ring. If the weather is not bright and sunny, you will probably not be able to get shots that are focussed or light enough
    Head towards Adenau from the ring, just after the Arai garage turn right (opposite supermarket) continue on this road for approx 1/2 mile, turn right down small track.
    After only a few 100 yards, park
    The track is about 20 feet through these trees and up a small slope.
    There is a viewing platform to stand on and when there you see the track.

    Turn on to the 412 from the 258 and it's on your left, half a mile or so, you can't miss it

    Easy parking. The track comes down towards you from a left hander, into a right and then another right hander before they go out of sight. Can get very interesting

    Best way to get a good view is to get a ticket and do a lap or two.
