    The devil once visited the valley of the Ahr and found so much favor on land and people, but above all on the excellent red wine, that he forgot his return home. One day, when he was resting on the mountain opposite the Are Are Castle, his grandmother approached him in the form of a beautiful maiden. In the arms of the devil in love, she quickly turned back to the all too well-known, disgusting old woman. He grabbed his grandmother angrily and flung her back down the cliff to hell. This is how the Devil's Hole came to be, which can still be seen above Altenahr.

    A visit to Teufelsloch is simply a must when hiking in the Ahr valley. Appropriate footwear and sure-footedness are required.

    A really nice highlight above Ahrweiler. The ascent is not without it, but worth it in any case. A bank invites you to stay a while and enjoy the really great views. Anyone who is a little more daring and has some experience in climbing, can also rock the rock a bit high and enjoy the view in all four directions.

    The Devil Hole is a hole in the rock. From there you have a wonderful view. The hike there is a real mountain hike.

    My first hike in the Ahr valley led up here. In the afternoon in the summer it was quite warm, but there were no other hikers on the way so you really had a lot of peace and quiet up here!

    from Altenahr steep climb to the Teufelsjoch, a tour as in the Alps. But sturdy shoes and sticks recommended. Not dangerous in wet conditions.

    If the devil ever was here ...... you can even risk a look. It's worth it.

    Very nice view from the Teufelsloch on Altenahr with Are Castle!
    It is definitely worth making the detour from the Eifelsteig there.
    Sturdy shoes and surefootedness are required.

    On the Heislei above Altenahr, the Black Cross is located at a popular vantage point overlooking Altenahr, the ruin of the Are Castle and the Devil's Hole.

    Jacob Caspary from Altenahr set there on 11 April 1865 for the first time a wooden cross on.

    There are two "main roads" leading to the Devil's Hole. Then a short, short climb (with a tether) leads up to the Devil's Hole. From the top you have a wonderful view of the "Black Cross" and the "Castle Are".

    Sturdy footwear and because of the danger of slipping on some slopes, carry hiking poles, especially in damp and frosty conditions.

    very nice viewpoint, rarely seen something so great. You climb the mountain, come through a hole in the rock to the other side and have a picture book view.

    As a kind of peephole, the devil's hole offers a funny and very beautiful perspective. The way there is also worthwhile. However, there are much nicer spots in the area for a panoramic view. Another disadvantage is that the Teufelsloch is a dead end street and that there is a lot of traffic jammed there and you don't want to or can't stay there any longer.
