The Ahr valley has had the possible biggest ever face lift. It comes as no surprise that top vintner Werner Näkel has contributed considerably to the German Red Wine Miracle, which put the Ahr valley‘s Pinot Noir on the map internationally during the 1990ies. Numerous important wine trophies have since made their way to the Ahr valley, which also beckons with culinary delights. This little side valley of the majestic Rhine River is wildly romantic with its rugged cliffs, steep vineyards and wooded slopes. The valley of the red grape is best discovered on foot along the Ahrsteig Trail and Red Wine Hiking Trail, from the saddle of your bicycle along the Ahr Cycle Route, while strolling in the spa town Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler or in the footsteps of the ancient Romans.
