We started at 8:00 a.m. in Düsseldorf and went by car to Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler. The rising sun accompanied these approx. 100km. Passing by Leverkusen, Merkenich and almost all these industrial cities of North Rhine-Westphalia we were sad to look at all these smokestacks…We moved to NRW 2 years ago and  perhaps never learned to love this kind of countryside.

Hiking trail “Rotweinwanderweg” starts in Altenahr. You can hike here in direction of Bad Bodendorf approx. 35 km.  If you need silence winter is a great time to experience it. September/October is time for grape picking and a lot of tourists are on the move in this region. End of June, July is a blooming period. We hope to be here in this time.

We put some pictures within next days.

We wish you a nice Monday!
