Altenahr, with its 1000 year-long history, is the most well-known and busiest place for excursions on the Ahr - and also one of the most varied.
From the “Easter Greetings” (Ostergrüße) to the “Wine Summer” (Weinsommer) to the romantic “Castle festival” (Burgenfest) and the “Starlit hours” (Sternstunden) - Altenahr attracts guests from near and far throughout the year with its programmes an festivals.
Walkers can set off on the Red Wine Hiking Trail (Rotweinwanderweg) from here and those seeking peace and quiet can explore the conservation area of Langfigtal. Those interested in history visit the castle of Burg Are from the 11th Century.
It is even said that the devil was once here – he supposedly left behind the man-sized “Devil’s Hole” (Teufelsloch) in one of the mighty rocks, through which there is a view of the neighbouring town of Altenburg. Altenahr has many interesting details in store to be discovered by its visitors.
We look forward to your visit!
