    The ring track is a railway line in Braunschweig, which was expanded to a walking and cycling path over about eight kilometers. The path leads through residential and commercial areas as well as green spaces and networked nearby park and green areas.

    The first section of the route running in the western ring area was inaugurated in 2003 in the area of the western railway station and was initially referred to as the "western ring track". Until 2011, the expansion from the Oker in the north opposite the Braunschweig-Mitte thermal power station to the Harz + Heide exhibition center in the south. In further construction phases, a new bridge was built over the A 391 and in 2016 the crossing of the Oker at the thermal power station.

    The southern part of the ring track from Westbahnhof is also part of the Braunschweiger ZeitSchiene project.

    In May 2011, the city of Braunschweig published a master plan for the ring track. The entire ring track was included in the planning for the creation of a pedestrian and bike path around the entire city center of Braunschweig. In the new concept, a motto is assigned to the individual sections of the ring track: the western ring track becomes the social track, the southern ring track becomes the railway track, the eastern ring track becomes the park track and the northern ring track becomes the track through technology and nature. The completed ring track should cover a distance of around 19 kilometers.

    Absolutely worth the experience. Although the section between the echo bridge and Riddagshausen is still missing, it can be well improvised

    Meanwhile, you can reach the Prince Albrecht Park and drive from Broitzem 11 km through a varied park and industrial landscape. We recommend....

    Nice route around the city with mostly very good road quality. In good weather, very well attended, so probably no longer an insider tipIn the western section between Klinikum Celler Straße and Rudolfplatz there is currently a small detour due to the improvement of the route.

    In my opinion, the northern and middle part of the western ring track is very appealing, although the southern part is nice to drive, but a bit boring.
