Mmmmm....I didn't think the 2013 beyond January TF dates were out yet? However Easter is usually a pretty safe bet.

Just a suggestion, the Dorint IMO is a pretty bland and souless place to stay, have you considered the Blau Ecke or Landhaus Sonnehof in Adenau? Lots more places locally to eat and a few more places to have a beer.

Mr TS, go do it fella.....always an excellent long weekend at the Nurburgring.

Cheers

Anyone who can find time and money should do this trip. It is a lifetime bonus achievement. I am planning on doing the same road trip in July 2013 but from Greece :driving: And to be exact Greece>Italy>Switzerland>France>Germany>Czech Republic>Austria>Italy>Greece :roll:I believe it is something i will most certainly enjoy! To be honest this trip is the reason i got the Z4 :thumbsup: My only concern about this trip is that i have heard rumors that there are occasional attacks to passing cars from the italian mafia on the switzerland-italy border on the alps.Most probably nothing to worry about, but then again you never know :oops:

Ahhhh "No.1" is looking mighty fine there Paza :) I don't mind at all mate!

This is very tempting, I have got 2 weeks booked off (23rd March-5th April) but Mrs W wants to go skiing from 24th-31st March so I might not be back in time :(

Will keep you posted...

Easter is at the end of March, beginning of April this year, so while it's a better bet than early March, it has been known to still have snow in April.

Also Easter weekend is the 3-4 day Car Freitag where EVERYONE comes - as it's usually the unofficial 'start of the season' event.

I believe this year is it 29-31st March - and it's April Fool's Day the following day :rofl:

I've been there in May and woken up to a couple of inches of snow.

Not sure I would, or at least I wouldn't be thrashing it if I did. The drive down and the photo opportunities would be epic. I might need a co-pilot though if I do this though.
