while Ahrweiler is more hands on approch, Bad Neuenahr is hand in the pocket or better, you must have deep pockets......Bad Neuenahr is for the more rich and Gamblers. The Casino one of the oldest in Germany.
Kaiser Wilhem II a frequented visitor here.
but the Town has also a wonderful setting right beside the River Rhine and the Promenade a wee beauty. People also flock to the Health Spa, which has an excellent Reputation in Germany
The synagogue was built in 1894 in the so-called Moorish style - note the horse-shoe shaped arches of the windows. In 1938 the building was devastated by the Nazis, the last Jewish inhabitants of Ahrweiler were deported in 1942. Since then there has been no Jewish community in town.
In 1981 a private initiative of Ahrweiler citizens bough the building and restored it. Since then it has been used for cultural events.
Bad Neuenahr - Ahrweiler
"a small but most charming Wine-Region"
Vinyards surrounds the Village, one can see from the Kitchen window ....how the grapes are doing and later in the autum, a wonderful flavour of the rippening grapes makes you nearly dizzy.....trunk^..^
delay the Wine tasting and have a walk around this beautiful area.
do it before you sit down for a glas of wine.....it won't be the last one, the red drop is just too good for being dismissed,this region has, in my humble opinion, the best Red, Germany can produce. it's not a fullish , dark coloured Red, is a light redish colour....and it goes down sooo well.you will be the judge of how many are enough, for still walking straight ^..^
the triangle between Aachen..Koblenz..Trier is indeed one of the most charming region in Germany. to reach Ahrweiler just turn of on the Autobahn, between Godesberg and Bonn. there is no shortage of guiding signs.....Germans love their signs, calling it
the sign forest
