The Ahr Cycle Route follows the course of the river Ahr from the point where it flows into the Rhine near Remagen to its source in Blankenheim. Close to the Rhine cyclists start off amid magnificent riverbank meadows. Once past Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler, that scenery gives way to the impressive cliffs and vineyards of the Ahr valley. The river now becomes quite wild, winding its way through craggy rocks and past steep vineyard slopes.
Dernau, Mayschoss and Altenahr are some of the well-known wine towns along the Ahr Cycle Route. Here, rustic taverns and inns selling home-produced wine welcome travellers with hearty food and wine tastings.
The last section between Altenahr and the source of the river in Blankenheim takes cyclists through the uplands of the Eifel region, partly along a disused railway line and partly through a broad meadow valley.
