Once a stronghold for the tobacco growing industry, today a magnet for ultra-speed and high-tech fans. With barely 21,000 inhabitants Hockenheim looks back at a fascinating history. The first tobacco museum in Baden-Württemberg is a strong reminder of the former agricultural history. Meanwhile, businesses from packaging technology, mechanical engineering, logistics, electrical engineering, metal processing and service sectors have shaped the city’s economic life.
The present age is dominated above all by the internationally known Hockenheim Ring with its motor sports and music events. Whether it be the DTM (German Touring Cars Masters), motorcycle racing, test drives of leading vehicle manufacturers or ADAC centre for driving safety training, it is all happening on and at the Hockenheim-Ring. For those wanting to rest after strenuous events, the Aquadrom, a swimming and leisure pool facility, as well as excursions to the artistic Kraichgau and the Palatinate await you.
Our local team is always happy to advise you on building your own trip and excursion itinerary.
