The Ahr Valley, located directly at the gates of the Rhine cities of Cologne and Bonn, is one of the most beautiful hiking paradises in Germany. In the centre of the Ahr Valley lies the town with two faces: Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler. On the one hand, it is a spa and health resort (Bad Neuenahr), on the other hand, it is characterised by Roman times and wine-growing (Ahrweiler). There are 15 circular hiking trails around the town, five of which are grape paths. The length of the hiking trails is between 3, 8 and 13 kilometres. The degree of difficulty ranges from easy to demanding, so there is a suitable hiking trail for every condition and mood.

Spoiled by the sun

Through the vineyards of Bad Neuenahr

 

You have a great view down into the Ahr valley and of the district of Bad Neuenahr almost the whole way along this grape path hike. In places you slip under the cool canopy of the forest, only to quickly walk out again through the vineyard. Depending on your taste or the day's mood, you can experience this hike in two variants. But if you have a choice, you are spoilt for choice ...

The detailed route description with information on places to stop for refreshments, beautiful views and altitude profiles can be found 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.

Eine schöne Wanderung entlang der Weinberge mit tollen Aussichten. Der Waldabschnitt hat uns auch sehr gut gefallen. Breite und ausgebaute Wege. Wir haben die Tour an einem Samstag gemacht. Leider war abschnittsweise durch die Bundesstraße, die Autobahn, viele benzingetriebene landwirtschaftliche Maschinen und die kilometerweit hörbare Schießsport-Anlage störender Lärm und dann eben überhaupt nicht idyllisch oder ruhig erholsam.

Sonnige Wanderung durch die Weinberge von Bad Neuenahr. Schöne Weitblicke und ein kleiner, aber feiner Waldabschnitt ergeben ein gemütliches Wandervergnügen.
