What tracks are in Germany, or Europe in General

I've mentioned before, I'm moving to Germany. My house is packed, and my cars and bike have all been delivered to the docks. I'm officially a mooch, spending the next 2 weeks living w/ my parents and my inlaws until I leave. But I've been using this time productively. I'm trying to plan a track day, but I'm coming up short on tracks that are open to the public in Germany. I definately know about Nurburgring, but that's the only one I know of for sure. Sachsenring's nearby, but I can't find anything on the site about track days. So, any of you that live, or have lived there know of tracks that are open to the public, please let me know what's out there. Thanks in advance.

I once said "Displacement was compensation for lack of skill. Therefore, there is no need for anything more than a well balanced 600." Right, who was I kidding.

Nurburgring all the way! How much was it to send over a bike?? Would love to send my bike over just to play on the ring for a few hours.

Bro,
All over Europe there's tracks, especially in Italy and Spain. There are quite a few in Germany as well. I'll see if I can find this website that I was looking at a while ago from the UK. They have trackdays at most of the major tracks throughout Europe and they aren't too expensive. If you want to come down to Sicily our trackdays are no more than 100 Euro open track all day 9 to 6, and when they run sessions it's 50 for 3 sessions. So all in all not bad at all.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I've been searching online, but as you can figure, most sites that pop up are in German, and Babelfish, while useful at times, sucks.

Hey bro I found this website. which has 3 tracks in Germany on it. Just click on whichever track and when you get to that site look for the button that is an English(UK) flag and it will change it all to english for you to be able to understand.

I currently live in Europe and do track days with www.bike-promotion.de they are a German based organization. Me and a few friends race the Pirelli Cup its a 3 day weekend event. Tracks here are very expensive but worth everypenny.
