Rheinsteig Stage 18: Bad Hönningen - Linz (South - North)

From the station, we take the southern access road towards Rheinbrohl. Arriving at the main Rheinsteig trail, we then turn north towards Linz. Following route no. 5 of the Nordic walking fitness park, Ahr-Rhein-Eifel, through fields and paddocks, the trail soon passes above the industrial area of Bad Hönningen and through a residential area into the Staierbach Valley. From here, the 'Am Paffelter' path leads up to the vineyards, with beautiful views of Bad Hönningen and Bad Breisig. From the Hönninger Schlossberg, the trail continues uphill in two winding loops. At the top of the hill, there is an original viewing pavilion with church bench seats.
