But there is much more to discover besides the popular trails. We are happy to help you plan your perfect trip.

Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler

On the one hand: Ahrweiler, the medieval red wine capital with its fully preserved city wall from the 13th century, including four equally well-preserved gates. Its charm is intensified through the many cafés, wine bars and stores winding through the city, inviting you to take strolls. On the other hand: Bad Neuenahr, which shines through its wellness opportunities and the casino, which is reopening in the summer of 2023.

TBoth parts are surrounded by vinyards and woods. The perfect place to relax while reconnecting with nature.


The so-called ‚Valley of the red grape’ offers a variety of possibilities for those seeking relaxation to arrange their stay according to their wishes. Historically, the city also has a lot to offer: the Roman villa and and government bunker are the perfect places to spend a rainy day and learn interesting facts about the town’s past.

The trail spans an approximate distance of 100km.
