The 6th stage is designed as a gourmet stage. Red wine connoisseurs will get their money's worth. From the romantic wine village of Walporzheim, the route leads along the medieval town of Ahrweiler to the sophisticated spa town of Bad Neuenahr.

From the makeshift bridge in Walporzheim at the entrance to the Heckenbach valley, we follow the path along the Heckenbach stream past the Heckenbach chapel up to the Geisbachtal refuge. After a left-hand bend, the path leads back towards the Ahr and then runs above the Ahr to the Wingsbachtal car park at the Maibachklamm gorge.The path now leads us past the former Liebfrauen monastery and the performance centre of German women's football, into the vineyards above Bad Neuenahr. Gradually we gain height until - now back in the forest - we start the descent into the valley of the Bachemer Bach, where almost at the end of the valley the small Lourdes Chapel awaits the hiker.After a quiet stop, we slowly conquer the ascent to the Karlskopf. Above Bachem, the view opens up over the vineyards down to the lively twin town of Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler. In a moment, however, we enter the Bad Neuenahr forest again. After a short descent, we reach the Paradieswiese and the forest climbing park. If you are looking for a special thrill, you can swing across the meadow and back at a height of 30 m, hanging from the guide rope in your own harness.

Author’s recommendation

From the forest climbing park it is just under 3 km of access road down to Bad Neuenahr.

etwas entspannter und weit weniger schwierig als die 5. Etappe. Aber sehr gut zu bewandern. Mit der Bahn nach Walporzheim und dann über den Ahrsteig nach Hause. Auch der Zuweg vom Kletterpark nach Bad Neuenahr hat Spaß gemacht.

Schöne Feld- und Waldwege mit Aussichten ins Ahrtal. Am Waldkletterpark würden wir einen Umweg über den Neuenahrer Berg empfehlen (Rundwanderweg Nr. 6). Für ´die Lourdes-Kapelle lohnt ein kleiner Abstecher.
