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

From the trail car park in Walporzheim we follow the path along the Ahrufers, leaving it through a small, jungle-like gorge. Over several short wooden footbridges we change again and again over the Wingsbach. The adventure in the small nature paradise lasts only briefly. We leave the gorge, our way leads us past the former Liebfrauenkloster and the performance center of German women's football, into the vineyards above Bad Neuenahr. Gradually we gain altitude until we - now again in the forest - take the descent into the valley of the Bachemer Bach in attack, where almost at the end of the valley, the small Lourdeskapelle waiting for the hiker. After a quiet retreat, we slowly conquer the climb to the Karlskopf , Above Bachem, the view over the vineyards opens down to the lively twin town of Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler. But it goes straight back into the Bad Neuenahr forest. After a short descent we reach the paradise meadow and the forest climbing park. If you are looking for a special kick, swing yourself across the meadow and back here at a height of 30 meters, hanging on the guide rope only in your own belt.

Author’s recommendation

From the forest climbing park it is just under 3 km of access road down to Bad Neuenahr, where generous parks accompany the course of the Ahr. The gambling casino awaits risk-taking hikers. If you prefer to relax, you will find the right atmosphere in the Ahrtherme.

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.
