Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler

Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler is a combined-town in Rhineland-Palatinate. As the name suggests, it is made up of two towns: the spa town of Bad Neuenahr, and the picturesque old town of Ahrweiler. Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler is one of the largest towns in the red-wine producing Ahr Valley.

Get in

By train

The town is accessible by a local stopping service (Regional Bahn) which runs along the Ahr Valley, connecting it with Bonn and Remagen. There are three stations, depending on which bit you want to visit: Bad Neuenahr in Bad Neuenahr, and Ahrweiler & Ahrweiler-Markt in Ahrweiler.

By road

Exits 30 and 31 of the A61.

Get around

The towns are small enough to see on foot, and it's a pleasant 40-minute walk along the river from the centre of one to the other. Alternatively, a bike path runs along the river or there are buses.
