Rhine, Ahr and Erft

A bike trip to three rivers

You start this tour in Bonn, the city of Beethoven and mountains Siebengebirge are leading you along the romantic river Rhine. River Ahr flows into river Rhine and you continue through the valley of Ahrtal, which is a paradise for people who love red wine. We really recommend tasting the wine in one of the numerous Heuriger. You still follow the river Ahr to its spring in Blankenheim and afterwards you continue along river Erft which leads you through the Rhenish bay. On your way there are numerous palaces, fortresses and manors which want to be visited.

Bike Tour Fehnroute

You start into the valley of Ahrtal where the river flows into the Rhine. Pass the well-known Apollinaris spring before you reach the health resort of Bad Neuenahr. A visit of medieval city Ahrweiler with its still intact city wall is worth it. You cycle through small villages which are famous for its numerous wine festivals to Altenahr and surroundings.

Your tour leads you slightly uphill into the region of Nordeifel. Enjoy your ride on disused railway tracks and through forests. We recommend making a detour into the nature park of valley Lemperstal – it is a highlight along the river Ahr bike path.

After a short stage you cycle downhill to the spring of river Erft which is located in Holzmülheim. You continue along the river to Bad Münstereifel where the medieval city centre awaits you with numerous museums and cafes. Along a few water mills you continue to Euskirchen where you stay overnight.

25 water palaces are awaiting you today; most of them are in a quite good condition! In Brühl you can visit the castle Augustusburg and the Mas-Ernst-Museum. Your destination for today will be Bonn.

The route

There is one stage to the spring of river Ehr; apart from that the route is flat. You cycle upstream along river Ahr, but there are no noteworthy altitudes in difference (300 metres along 40 km). You cycle on asphalted roads, country roads and side roads with less traffic.
