AhrSteig Stage 4: Insul-Kreuzberg
Shady woods lead to Sierscheid and then upward toward Dümpelhardt past secluded heaths. Fantastic views await from the foresty tops of the Ahr mountains. In the valley, Dümpelfeld boasts a beautiful Gothic church, St. Cyriacus. Far from any buildings, meadows and woods lead to Liersbachtal then up towards the Lierser plateau and through small woods to the 487-m high Linder Höhe. The strenuous hike is well worth it though, as hikers are rewarded with panorama views. A little further down, there is a romantic chapel. Mossy forest paths and sunny mixed forests lead back down into the valley with views of the sun-soaked vineyards of the Ahr valley. The leg ends at the train station of Kreuzberg. High above the village is Kreuzberg castle.
