Welcome to Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler
The hub of the Ahr Valley, Bad Neuenahr and Ahrweiler are a bit of an odd couple: two small towns joined together by government edict. The spouse listed second, Ahrweiler, should come first in terms of appeal. It's an attractive medieval town encircled by a wall and criss-crossed by pedestrianised lanes lined with half-timbered houses.
Bad Neuenahr, by contrast, is a spa town. Although its healing waters have been sought out by the moneyed and the famous (including Karl Marx and Johannes Brahms) for a century and a half, it's rather on the bland side.
