Tickets – 2019 German Grand Prix

Your guide to buying tickets and the best places to watch the action at the Hockenheimring for the 2019 German Grand Prix on July 26-28.

The German Grand Prix made a triumphant return to the F1 calendar last year with excellent attendance on race day, and has now been confirmed to remain on the calendar in 2019, largely thanks to Mercedes Benz, which is headquartered in nearby Stuttgart, becoming title sponsor. The long forest section may be gone, but the spectating opportunities in the purpose-built Hockenheimring stadium are now much better and the race is well organized. Just five main grandstands are on sale at the Hockenheimring, but there are seven ticket categories; in general, the higher up in the grandstand you are, the more you will pay.

The Main grandstand (Haupttribüne) is located on the start-finish straight. If you are keen to see what is happening in the pits, plus the race buildup, start and podium celebrations after the race, then these are the best seats. Choose a different grandstand if you want to see on-track action.The Mercedes grandstand is located between turns 8-10, but you’ll be able to see the cars from as early as turn 5 (Parabolika). You should be able to see some good passing moves here during the race, especially on the hairpin (turn 6) and into turn 8. On the downside, the Mercedes grandstand is further from the best off-track action in the F1 Village.The most expensive tickets at the Hockenheimring are sold for the Südtribüne Oberrang, the highest Yellow section of the South grandstand on the final corner. The elevated views from this corner are excellent; depending on exactly where you sit, you should have a good view of the final corners from Mobil 1 kurve (turn 12) through to the Sudkurve (turn 17) and down the main straight. Lower down in this grandstand, the C-D sections offer better views than A-B, whilst the H is great for the race build up, start and podium celebrations after the race.The best sections of the North grandstand (Nordtribüne) are the higher Blue B & C sections closest to the opening corner, which provide an excellent view for the race start; remember Felipe Massa rolling here in 2014? The A section is better for the pits action and race build up.The Inner grandstand (Innentribüne) is located on the Sachs curve (turn 13) and offers views of the last few corners of the circuit, but not the start-finish straight. The lowest section in this grandstand is the main General Admission area at the circuit.

  1. Hi what tickets do I need to buy at the hockenhiem ring for the German F1 if I want standing near the Parabolika and Spitzkehre hairpin (turns 5-7).
    Will I need to
    Buy a seated ticket which also allows access to those areas?

    1. Hi Patrick, good question. I think you need to ring the Hockenheimring ticket office – the cheapest General Admission tickets cost 139 EUR and are only available by calling +49 6205 950-222. Someone should speak English I guess. Good luck

    Hi Andrew,

    What are these General Admission tickets? Do you get any dedicated seats with these and if yes where?


  3. Hi, I,m getting confused whether to buy a North-stand middle row or mercedes lower stand. I want to see some action (I know turn 8 and 6 are good for overtaking how is turn 1?) and want to be able to watch the big screen as well

    1. Yes, I believe General Admission is the green Category 7 section of the Inner Tribune. However, it’s already sold out for 2019 – sorry. One thing to note is that the spectator zones at the Hockenheimring are actually open to the public. You can go and check out the Fan Zone and even possibly get a view of the track without any ticket. You only have to show your ticket when you go into one of the grandstands. I don’t know of any circuit like this on the F1 calendar :)

      1. That’s awesome! So anyone can enter the track but not the grandstands for free? Is it deifficult to see the track without a ticket?

        1. Matt, this was my experience last year, but I didn’t wander too far around. I think it could be difficult to see too much of the track without a ticket, but worth a try.

  4. Hi, please do you know if there are radio headsets available at the track that can receive English commentary? Many thanks, Ben

    1. Not that I am aware of Ben, but the trackside commentary is in English and German. You can also listen to commentary via the F1 app.
