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 spa town of Bad Neuenahr.
Distance 15.7 km
Before the actual start of the stage, it is worth visiting the historic old town of Ahrweiler as well as the Roemervilla Museum and the Government Bunker documentation site. From the entrance to the Heckenbach valley, the trail leads through shady floodplain forests, past the Calvarienberg monastery and through the vineyards to the Lourdes Chapel. Pass the Karlsberg lookout point and walk through the Neuenahr forest to the forest climbing park. The 3 km marked access path then leads steeply downhill to Bad Neuenahr. Spacious parks and magnificent town villas come into view.
From the forest climbing park it is just under 3 km of access road down to Bad Neuenahr.
