Nordic Walking

Walking without wheezing?

That is Nordic walking, the magic formula for healthy exercise and anti-aging. No wonder, as with Nordic Walking you reach the optimum training effect. It is suitable for everyone and it´s fun. Whatever the season, in any weather, normal sports clothing and a pair of specially designed poles are all the equipment you need.

Here you can find our Nordic Walking offers:

Rhine-Mile Active Circuit

Each of the three courses of the three Rhine towns run between the Pinger hotel at the railway station in Remagen and the “Römerthermen” Roman baths in Bad Breisig. The routes run along parts of the Rhine Mountain Trail. Enjoy breathtaking views of the Rhine Valley. Additionally a 21.1 km half-marathon route connects the three Rhine communities.

Mittelahr Circuit

Mayschoß, surrounded by woods and vineyards, is one of the most famous wine villages in the Ahr Valley. The vineyards gently wind their way around the picturesque village. As well as the excellent pinot noir the village is well known for the Saffenburg castle ruin that is situated on a steep rock overlooking the right river bank. Other circuits in the Ahr Valley include the Basic Park circuit in Bad Neuenahr (departing from the Sporthaus Nett) and the Prävention circuit (departing from the Ahrthermen, the thermal baths).

The Laacher Lake Valley is one of the most unspoilt and purely preserved landscapes. The nature reserve around the lake is ideal for Nordic Walking, walking and mountain biking.
