During a 3-day stay in Bad Honnef, it is of course also advisable to first get familiar with the city and the immediate surroundings, such as the island of Grafenwerth and the district of Rhöndorf. You can find more information about this under the category “48 hours in Bad Honnef”.
For the second day, we recommend either one of the shorter hikes from “48 hours in Bad Honnef” or, for those who want to combine hiking with culture, the large loop along the “Beethovenwanderweg” (Beethoven hiking trail). This trail was initiated in 2020 to celebrate the 250th birthday of the region’s greatest son, Ludwig van Beethoven. The path is about 15km long and leads over various mountains of the Siebengebirge, such as Weilberg, Stenzelberg and Geisberg, but also over the Drachenfels and Petersberg. Due to the differences in altitude that have to be overcome, it can definitely be labeled as challenging. At various points, such as on the Petersberg or at the Heisterbach choir ruins, pillars of the BTHVN story are integrated, which inform about the artist’s life in the Rhineland.
