I think many people who looked at Travelscopes website,were under the impression that The River shown on the front page is the River Ahr? this is not the case.
I have put some pictures of the the River Ahr below which is the River that runs through Altenahr.
The Eifel Region consists of plenty forested landscapes that are home to deer and wild boar as well as other game. Driving during the night may end suddenly when game jumps out into the road and every year hundreds of accidents, sometimes even fatal occur here. Hence take the foot of the gas and drive carefully – once you have hit a full grown deer your journey may have come to an end!
Watch out for dog poo in other parts along the river. Or alternatively, if you take your dog along don't let him drop his business just anywhere.
