On the run out of Flugplatz the track speed increases because the circuit drops away whilst curving gradually to the left. The subsequent dip is one of the fastest places on the circuit and it propels the cars on to Scwedenkreuz, an ultra fast left handed kink with a dangerous crest on the approach. Next up is a heavy braking zone and the Aremberg corner, characterised by its relatively large gravel run off, a rarity on the Nordschleife. There is no designated viewing area at Aremberg but a track runs along the infield from the car park at Quiddelbacher Hohe (on the B257) all the way up to Aremberg. Trees obscure the view through Flugplatz, hence viewing is only really possible at Scwedenkreuz and Aremberg. During the 24 Hours, access to the road is restricted so it will have to be traversed on foot or by bike. From Aremberg footpaths lead to a bridge over the circuit and onto an outfield track that leads back down to Flugplatz or up to Adenauer Forst. Alternatively it is possible to follow the infield footpath all the way to Metzgesfeld but the track becomes broken through Adenauer Forst and it is not easily passable.
Between Aremberg and Adenauer Forst lies one of the most picturesque and remote parts of the circuit, the descent into Fuchsröhre. A series of gradual, alternating curves lead into a big compression where the circuit hugs the natural terrain. The ensuing climb up to Adenauer Forst is punctuated by a left and then a right turn as the circuit finds a way through the surrounding forest. Then comes the Adenauer Forst chicane. A deceptively tight left right that catches many a driver out, sending them barrelling over the steep curbs and the small grass infield. The viewing enclosure predominantly covers the Adenauer Forst chicane but a footpath does follow the circuit back down the hill almost as far as Fuchsröhre. Ignoring the path down to Fuchsröhre, a well maintained track leads back down the circuit to the bridge at Aremberg.
During the 24 Hours event the Adenauer Forst campsite can be accessed by car via a track off Kallenbachstraße in Adenau. Kallenbachstraße runs into Altes Poststraße before joining the B257 in the centre of Adenau. If you are intending on walking/cycling this track bear in mind that it is long and steep!
There is a short straight after Adenauer Forst and the ground here plateaus briefly. Two shallow left handers follow and then the cars plunge down into the Metzgesfeld complex. The infield spectator area at Metzgesfeld follows the circuit all the way along the downhill approach and through the sweeping left hander. There is a small run off area on the outside of the corner that is often scarred with tyre marks leading into the tyre wall! The area behind the catch fencing affords a good spectating opportunity of the cars clipping the apex with the long approach and the Nürburg castle in the background. There is also another handy gap in the fence here for photography purposes. During the 24 Hours event the Metzgesfeld campsite can be accessed by car via a steep track that runs all the way down to Brunnenstraße and the B257, approximately 400 m south of the Breidscheid bridge. From Metzgesfeld there is a rough trail that leads back to Adenauer Forst and a well maintained trail down to Wehrseifen.
After Metzgesfeld the track drops steeply through Kallenhard and Miss-Hit-Miss. The dreaded catch fencing hasn’t made it up here and as a result this remote section of circuit ranks highly from a spectator point of view. Further down the hill is the popular Wehrseifen hairpin. The left hander is a technically demanding corner because the braking begins on the right handed approach and there is no room for error on the exit as the track once again bends to the right. As a result a number of different lines are adopted through the hairpin. Viewing from the trail that leads up to Metzgesfeld will highlight this. Follow the trail round to the apex of the corner and and you will get a view of the cars well below you at the bottom of the steep embankment that borders the circuit. During the 24 Hours event the Wehresifen campsite can be accessed by car via the Breidscheid campsite (see below). From Wehrseifen there are well maintained trails leading up to Metzgesfeld and down to Breidscheid.
A short downhill straight follows the Wehrseifen hairpin. At the bottom awaits the Breidscheid curve where the circuit crosses the B257. The daunting left hander is bordered by concrete walls on either side where it bridges the road. The graffiti covered section of track always attracts a big crowd, perhaps due to the numerous bars and restaurants only a stone throw away in Breidscheid and Adenau. The viewing enclosure stretches all the way from Wehrseifen down to Breidscheid and the B257. Across the road, can be found a small car park and one of the two Nordschleife entrances used on Tourist Days. During the 24 Hours event the Breidscheid campsite can be accessed by vehicle from a track that runs off the B257, just south of the Breidscheid bridge. From Breidscheid the track continues up the hill to Wehrseifen.
