Turn-by-turn directions

Visiting Jesus in the forest

The little Walporzheim round

 

This grape path hike is the little sister of the big Walporzheimer Runde. It runs parallel to this hike over a large stretch, but is shorter overall. In terms of highlights, however, it is in no way inferior to its big sister, but is just as captivating with its alternation between paths through the vineyards with their many views and refreshing passages through the forest. Grandiose distant views included.

You will find a detailed description of the route with information on places to stop for refreshments, beautiful views and altitude profiles in the hiking book: "Rund um Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler. The 15 most beautiful hiking trails, J.P. Bachem Verlag, ISBN 978-3-7616-2844-7.

Wunderbare kurze Runde, die den Wanderer mit schönen Aussichten, viel Sonne und der Möglichkeit des Besuchs des Regierungsbunkers belohnt. Im Sommer bestimmt mit grünen Weinbergen noch schöner!
