Explanation: "Stadtring" is normally a highway that circles a city. You will find them in many cities in Germany. I would leave "Stadtring" in your translation and insert the English explanation.

Explanation: A Stadtring is not necessarily at the periphery of the city. Munich, for instance, has two Stadtringe, one around the older part of the city (called Mittlerer Ring) and the other one at the periphery (called Äußerer Ring).
Belt way might be misleading.

Explanation: All of the above answers would be correct under the right circumstances. But translating Stadtring would be like translating the Ringstraße in Wien, they are proper names. Just like Dallas and several other cities have a Beltway, these are usually proper names.
