Where to stay near the Hockenheimring for the 2019 German Grand Prix on July 26-28, 2018.Support the future development of F1Destinations by reserving your accommodation through the Booking.com links on this page. You won’t pay more and we receive a small commission. We also recommend adding accommodation to your Official Ticket Package from F1 Experiences. If you are planning to visit the Hockenheimring on a non-race weekend, it’s possible to stay right at the track in the Hotel Motodrom. The hotel, main picture above, has 3 stars and makes a great base for those keen to explore the circuit and surrounds. The most convenient and popular place to stay for the German Grand Prix at the Hockenheimring is trackside camping. If you don’t want to rough it, then you’ll need to stay in one of the larger towns nearby, such as Heidelberg or Mannheim, as accommodation closer to the track tends to get booked out very early. With the race around six months away, Mannheim has the best selection of mid-priced hotels with availability. Further afield, don’t discount staying in the larger cities of Frankfurt to the north or Stuttgart to the south, though the daily commute to the circuit gets more difficult (congested roads, overcrowded trains) as the weekend progresses.
Camping remains popular during the traditional European summer racing season, and Hockenheim is no exception. Thousands of fans from Germany and all over Europe camp at one of the many campsites within walking distance of the circuit. Prices are reasonable, though some sites can get a little drunken and rowdy. The best aspect of camping is that you don’t need to battle the road traffic or overcrowded trains and buses to get to the circuit each day.
