The annual Le Mans 24 hour race is probably the most famous and prestigious automotive event motoring history even recorded. Throughout its 78 editions the world has seen bright rises and bitter downfalls, tears of joy and frustration. The spirit of the marathon is everywhere in the little town and its surroundings – from the race dedicated monument in its very heart to the windows of small local shops. But if you want to feel the rich history of the famous race, there is no better place than Musee Automobile de la Sarthe located right on the edge of the circuit, in front of Dunlop Curve.
The majestic Langenburg Castle lies not far from Highway No 6, on the way from Nürnberg to Heilbronn. It is signposted so you can't miss the way. Once you zig-zag up on the hill there's a parking lot, accompanied by the building of the Deutsches Automuseum (German Automobile Museum).
