The town is most well known for the nearby Hockenheimring motor racing circuit.
- 1 Hockenheim station. Served by regional trains. This 1980s construction replaced the 19th century station when the Neubaustrecke was built.
Autobahn A6 passes just out of town.
You'll probably get around on foot. There are buses but they have few stops inside the town, don't come very frequent and only travel along the main street anyways, meaning that they aren't worth it for the regular traveller.
There are plenty of local restaurants and shops here ranging from traditional German food to Italian food. There are also Döner Kebap stores. There's some fast food chains here as well.
- Johanneshof, Seewaldsiedlung 5, ☏ . About 5km east of Speyer, a funky combination of market garden business, pub and luxury guest house; superb hospitality and great value. E90-130.
The neighboring village of Reilingen is right around the corner and is regionally famous for its asparagus.
