    BAD NEUENAHR: The "Kurschatten"

    by Kathrin_E Updated Jun 11, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The institution of the "Kurschatten" ("spa shadow") is said to be popular among spa guests, especially those of a certain age. Being stuck in a spa town for treatment over four or six weeks can be boring and meeting other people who are also bored bears a certain risk. The fear of every spouse who stayed at home is that the better half will get him- or herself a "Kurschatten" - a friendship or even affair with a person of the opposite sex they meet at the spa. This may become sexual but not necessarily has to.

    Observing elderly people at the cafes of a spa town can be fun. Sometimes it's so obvious and cute to see them flirting.

    We visited around Easter, and the Easter bunnies were everywhere.

    The funny pair was put up in a shop window in Bad Neuenahr.

    In Ahrweiler they had Easter bunnies attached to all the street lanterns in the main street. Cute!

    Winemaking and ironworking

    The most financially rewarding trade in the area is winegrowing. Germany's only good red wines come from the Ahr valley and the vineyards literally extend to the city limits of Ahrweiler. (it is worth several sips). The other ancient trade is ironworking and it is evident all over town as part of building care and sign-craft. Further evidence of these talents are the presence of restored sgraffitti and wood-carving (but this last might be restored original)

    ALTENAHR: The Ghost Sign

    by Kathrin_E Written Jun 4, 2008

    Altenahr street sign

    I discovered this funny sign along the bike trail near Altenahr. Is it an official warning about a ghost, or just a sign for some local people's weird sense of humour...?
