Dear Cologne Hikers,

We loved the beautiful Ahr valley back in July. This time we will combine hiking in the region with some well-deserved wine afterwards.

We will hike from Rech to the top of Steinerberg, the highest mountain of Eifel. From there we will walk back to the Ahr. From the ruin Saffenburg we will have a wonderful view of the Ahr valley. Right below Saffenburg is Mayschoss which hosts its wine fest on every weekend of October and where we will enjoy some delicious Ahr wine.

Distance: about 10 km
Duration: about 3 h
Ascent: 438m
Descent: 438m

It's a sporty hike this time with long and sometimes steep ascents and descents. Proper hiking boots are recommended.

We will meet at Protected content and start our hike from there. Protected content

On our way back we will take the train from Mayschoss. If you decide to come by car you will be able to catch a train from Mayschoss back to Rech.

Please note:
- If it's raining we will have to cancel the hike. So, please check this page for last-minute announcements.
- Bring your hiking gear, enough water and food with you. We will certainly take a break during our hike.
- Please drink responsibly and don’t drink and drive!
- Please only sign up if you are sure you will attend and please cancel if you cannot make it and allow others to take your spot.

See you there and best wishes,
