Region: World » Germany » Westliche Mittelgebirge » Eifel
Date of the hike: 1 November 2015
Hiking grading: T1 - Valley hike
Waypoints:
Time: 4:00
Height gain: 402 m 1319 ft.
Height loss: 402 m 1319 ft.
Route:16 Kilometer

A rewarding tour, mostly along easy but very scenic forest paths, with some mountain trails typical for the German uplands. There are a few steep ascents, and generally much elevation gain and loss. The first part follows the long-distance Eifelsteig, the second follows the Ahr-River-Steig.
 
The source of the river Ahr is in Blankenheim, and much is made about it.
 
Blankenheim, the spring hidden in a house, and the fortress are worth a visit indeed. We recommend doing the hiking first and saving the Blankenheim sightseeing for later on, possibly connected with a coffee or meal in one of the many pubs.
