Directions

The starting point of the hike is the parish church in Gais. From here, walk in the direction of the street "Talfriedenstraße", then cross the "Ahr" bridge and continue walking, between the houses, in a north-easterly direction up to the forest, where the "Waalweg" begins (about 20 minutes' walk from the bridge). The path leads flatly through the steep forest hillsides in a southerly direction and ends north of the Bärentalhof farm, where it joins a wide corridor path. You turn right and return to the starting point of the hike on the slightly descending field path that runs through meadows and fields.

How to get there
