I was asking about the Nurburg Ring which is about 200 miles away. Ill be heading to Aachen and to the ring from there. Maybe during this summer if I can.

I have heard of a road in the area about 50 miles south of Mannheim or 40 miles West of Stuttgart whichever, it starts in Baden-Baden and heads south through a village called Sand then Siebelseckle, Schliffkopf and finishes in Freudenstadt. This only a small part of the Black Forest but its very popular with German bikers. Very fast if your into that but with great views from the road.
There was an article in Bike mag about it not so long ago.

B500 and then follow the Mosel river. Best biking roads in Europe, and they are fairly traffic free as well.
