    Of our three tour suggestions through the Ahr valley, this is the most demanding. It goes up or down permanently, you hardly go through the plane. At about 39 kilometers, just under 1000 meters of altitude come together. This meandering the route always along the Ahr, which always gives you a wonderful view - so it pedaled much easier.You start by the nature reserve Ahrschleife, in which loads of great trails are waiting for you. Along the Ahr you will be impressed how beautiful it is here. Maybe you feel like you're on vacation. The similarity to the Italian Tuscany can not be denied.About halfway through the tour it will be especially good. Here are two straight switchback trails on you. A mixture of mini Alpentrail and Garda-Geballer. Only in the middle of Germany - who continues to travel, it is your own fault.The trails today are all feasible. If you are not fit enough to switch hair, take it as a workout. Since it is sometimes quite steep and rocky, we would still recommend to simply pack the knee pads. Would be stupid if you after the tour the delicious red wine (which we simply recommend you in the Ahr Valley) must enjoy with scrawny knees. In this sense: Santé and probably get it!
