For those interested in history: Bad Hönningen marks the starting point of the Roman Limes, the border wall of the Roman Empire against the Germanic tribes. Reconstructions of these fortifications can be seen. For those more interested in wellness, head to the Kristall-Rheinpark spa. Healthful bathing in medicinal waters, sauna visits in great ambiance… just relax and forget the usual stress. Right and left of the Rhine, the Westerwald forest and the Eiffel with their great landscapes await the biker or hiker. The volcanic Eifel offers a look back into geologic history, especially at the Maar Laacher See lake, where one also finds an old Benedictine abbey. Nearby: Andernach, the largest cold-water geyser (50-60m). Bonn, the former German capital with several art and history museums is nearby (30 km). Koblenz, also 30 km away, lies where Rhine and Mosel meet in the ‘German Corner’ below Ehrenbreitstein fortress, a small town with typical ambiance. Ahrtal valley is a small, and the Northernmost, wine-growing area. Its wines have gained increasing renown, especially the reds. Many visitors come for the wine festivals. There are also well-preserved Roman relics. Biking and hiking tours in the area are another great pleasure. As most of the sights are to be found on the Rhine’s left bank, in what used to be the territory of the Roman empire, we recommend picking a vacation spot in this area, picking the Ahrtal valley as starting point, and using one of the “Im Wildgarten” holiday apartments as quarters.

Certainly, the city has a lot to offer, e.g. the various events like medieval markets, wine festivals, as well as the excellent trails such as Rheinsteig, Rheinhöhenweg, and Westerwaldsteig. Or for cyclists the German Limes bike trail or the Rhine cycling route. In addition, the cities of Bonn and Koblenz are each just an hour’s drive away. The other side of the Rhine also has wonderful destinations for excursions. For example, the "Bridge of Remagen", the volcanic Eifel region, the Nürburgring below the Nürburg, the Ahrteil with its many wineries that invite you to wine tastings, Maria Laach, the red wine hiking trail or, for cycling, the Rudi Altig tour, miles of Nordic walking routes, the summer toboggan run, the enchanted Wolfschlucht gorge, or geocaching ....

The limes ran between Bad Hönningen and Rheinbrohl, opposite the Vinxtbach, the border between Germania Inferior and Superior. At this point the limes crossed the Rhine and continued on the eastern bank. On this site a small castellum was built. In 1972 a Roman watchtower was reconstructed from archeological finds.
