    The Ahr. Is located in the basement of the half-timbered house from 1726, visible from the outside. An average of 700 liters of water flow from the spring per minute, and the water flows through the masonry canal.
    The Ahr spring, which rises under an old half-timbered house is the center of the historic center.
    After 89 km, the Ahr ends at Sinzig in the Rhine. Along the Ahr lies the romantic Ahrtalwanderweg, a popular destination for hikers.
    It flows east to the Rhine; below Bad Neuenahr, the Ahr valley expands.
    The Ahr Valley is the largest closed red wine growing area in Germany.
    The river name Ahr comes from the Celtic word ar and means source, water, brook, river.

    Must have seen, if you are ever in Blankenheim, even if there is not much to see :-)

    When do you see a spring that springs from a cellar already interesting.

    In the middle of the village, a source in the building, where is there still something to see? In any case, a highlight.

    Somewhat hidden between or even under old houses is the source of the Ahr.

    A source that springs from under a house. Very inconspicuous, but you shouldn't miss it when visiting Blankenheim 👍

    It looks nondescript, but the fact that a spring comes from under a house is funny.

    If you build your house on a spring, you don't have to worry about water.

    Nice half-timbered houses and nice town center. Nearby is also the tourist information office and a souvenir shop.
