Adenauer Forst

GOOGLE EARTH MAP LINK

Where newbies come a cropper, often. The following photographs were taken at Adenauer Forst

 
 
 
 
Directions:

Navigate to ADENAUER Forst in TomTom

Leave the main car park and turn right at the roundabout. At the tee junction turn left, going downhill towards Adenau. 5KMs Tee junction turn right into Adenau. go under track bridge and continue into Adenau. 1.5KM turn left opposite the VW garage. Follow road to the end 400 yards. Park car in car park by school. Walk up track to the right of the school and follow path for 800 yards uphill.

WARNING this walk is not for the faint hearted, take a drink. If the gate to the track beside the school is open you are lucky and can drive up the hill.

There is a Gate at the bottom of the uphill single track road which is closed nearly every weekend, but seems to be open for Monday afternoons and evening sessions. When it is open you can drive up and park 50m from the corner.

This viewing point is very easy to find and close to the track, however as it is under trees, it is usually darker than most other viewing points on the ring. If the weather is not bright and sunny, you will probably not be able to get shots that are focussed or light enough.
