Altenahr Conservation Youth Hostel is situated in the heart of the Langfigtal nature reserve, right next to the river Ahr. Altenahr is a romantic little place in the middle of the Mittelahr red wine region. The Ahr meanders dreamily around tight corners as it cuts through a bizarre rocky landscape where lush vineyards cling to bare rock - surrounded by the towering Eifel mountains.
