Hockenheim is a small town located only 14 kilometers south of the slightly larger neighboring town of Heidelberg. Hockenheim has only about 20,000 inhabitants and is best known for its Hockenheimring race track.

Attractions in the city

For those interested in motorsport, we recommend a visit to the Hockenheim Motorsport Museum. The motorsport museum in Hockenheimring was opened in 1986 as an additional attraction not only for visitors to competition events but also as a destination for motorsport fans. Hockenheim-Ring GmbH was able to buy Walter Brandstetter's motorcycle collection from St. Pölten, Austria. It was one of the first collections of its kind and has been known all over the world since the 1960s. The collection consists of historic motorcycles, mainly from the brands NSU and Norton, but over time, the museum has been supplemented with modern racing vehicles. The museum is located in the Hockenheimringen area.

If you want to experience something other than the motor culture in Hockenheim for a little while, a tip is to visit the Hockenheimer Maislabyrinth. Out on a large corn field, challenging labyrinths have been created that are also pedagogically created for children along approximately 2.5 km long tracks. For over 15 years, the organizer has created various labyrinths in the cornfields, for visitors to implement. In addition to these, it is also possible to buy drinks on site and have picnics in a garden.

In the nearby town of Heidelberg there is a castle ruin with the German name Schloss Heidelberg, this is located high up on the hill Königstuhls slope. Here you get a fantastic view of Heidelberg's old town and the Neckardalen. The castle consists of several buildings and was built in the 13th century but was destroyed by a fire in 1764. The ruins are a popular destination and there is much to see and discover here. In addition to a nice view, you can take part in guided tours around the castle. In the basement there is also a Pharmacy Museum with interesting exhibitions about the history of the pharmacy. The castle ruin is open every day of the week.

The food culture

In German cuisine, meat plays a major role. Pork, beef and chicken are the most common. Sausages are popular and especially their famous Bratwurst. This thick sausage, which consists of pork and beef seasoned with herbs and garlic, is served either in bread or french fries or sauerkraut (sauerkraut). Sauerkraut is another German specialty that is simply cabbage that has been fermented using lactic acid bacteria, which gives it a better shelf life and a higher nutritional value.
