Places for excursions and tourist attractions

Here you can find a few selected excursion destinations and tourist attractions near Altenahr. Further destinations can be found on the information map above.
Burg Are
Castle "Burg Are"

The staircase of the castle Burg Are is found in Altenahr (Street: Rossberg 56). From the station it takes 20 minutes on foot to get to the ruins. Visiting the ruins is free and only possible on foot.
Please do not enter the ruins after dark!

The summer toboggan run at Altenahr

Approx. 4 km above Altenahr you will find the summer toboggan run at Altenahr.
You are pulled up 200m with the lift on a “toboggan” – a flat wagon. From the top the toboggans roll along a trough of stainless steel through seven fast curves over 500m into the valley. Controlled by brakes by the driver they can either travel fast or slow. Young people in particular have lots of fun, but also many older people enjoy journeying into the valley. The track can also be used in wet and rainy weather.

Museum Römervilla
Museum Roemervilla Ahrweiler

Even the Romans appreciated the pleasant climate in the Ahrtal and built an impressive villa rustica at the edge of the contemporary town of Ahrweiler. Today visitors can experience the “most well-preserved Roman villa north of the Alps” and travel back to past times with costume tours. Opening times: End of March until mid November: 10:00 – 17:00. Monday closed.
