Maybe Hamburg will have a kind of uncompleted ring when:
- the A21 (u/c) has been connected with the A250 near Lüneburg
- the A20 (u/c) has been prolonged in a bow northwest of Hamburg, crossing the Elbe river near Stade
- the A26 (u/c) from Hamburg-Moorburg has been completed until Stade, where it will connect with the A20.

i made that list because the Kölner Ring also consist of three autobahns that happen to be around Köln
or did the planners say when they completed a "ring": "oh cool, it's a ring now, but did we want that? hm, well, too late"

Well, at least the roads around Dortmund are caled Dortmund Ring, and the roads around Mainz are called Mainzer Ring. And then there is also the Gießener Ring (B49, B429, A480, A485, around 21km).

I don't think that counts as a beltway. Though it's good to see some integration of road networks between these countries.

For the shortest ringroad the R9/Petite Ceinture de Charleroi in Belgium would be a good contender, with a total length of 5200 meters:

It's also the only ringroad I know of with one-way traffic.

Charleroi is kinda weird city. Wasn't it chosen as Europe's ugliest city?

Route R of the Nagoya Expressway in Japan is also a one-way ringroad.

If we're counting ring roads that small, Canberra wins it hands down. Vernon Circle is just 800 metres long, at the very heart of Canberra. There's really no point to it existing other than to make aerial views of Canberra look pleasant.

Wienislava


in Croatia there are no full rings. Zagreb has nearly 3/4 bypass which is long 41 km (bypass is considered all between A4 exit 10 Popovec and A2 exit 6 Zaprešić. there are plans about building northern bypass which would finnich creating full ring (it would be long about 30 km, so full ring about 70 km), but i consider it absolutely unneccessary.
