The town of Alfter, in the Rhein-Sieg-Kreis district of Germany, was first mentioned in writing as long ago as 1067 — although there is significant historical interest dating back much further. Located just west of Bonn, Alfter has a rich history with evidence of Roman habitation stretching back to as early as the 1st century.
During a short walk around the town, with its half-timbered buildings and scenic views, you will find a broad range of art — ranging from the classical to the modern. These pieces of art are carefully laid out across the town for your enjoyment, making for a fascinating stroll and great photo opportunities. And after a casual walk around the town, what better way to end the day than with a glass of locally-produced wine? Not surprisingly, given the suitable climate and Roman history, wine production has been an important part of the economy for many years, and so it would be a shame to leave here without a taste, wouldn’t it?
