"Unter dem aus dem Jahre 1726 stammenden Quellhaus quillt die Ahr aus einem Becken, um dann in einem gemauerten Kanal Blankenheim zu durchfließen.

Die Ahr hat Blankenheim weit über die Landesgrenzen hinaus bekannt gemacht. Sie prägt einen Großteil der Landschaft in der Gemeinde Blankenheim und nimmt ihren Weg durch das romantische Ahrtal, bis sie nach 89 km bei Sinzig in den Rhein mündet."

EN (Translation):
"Under the spring house dating from 1726, the Ahr flows out of a basin and then flows through a bricked canal Blankenheim.

The Ahr has made Blankenheim famous far beyond the national borders. It marks a large part of the landscape in the municipality of Blankenheim and takes its way through the romantic Ahr valley until it flows into the Rhine after 89 km near Sinzig".

"Ahr is a river in Germany, a left tributary of the Rhine. Its source is at an elevation of approximately 470 metres (1,540 ft) above sea level in Blankenheim in the Eifel, in the cellar of a timber-frame house near the castle of Blankenheim. After 18 kilometres (11 mi) it crosses from North Rhine-Westphalia into Rhineland-Palatinate.

The Ahr flows through Ahr valley or Ahrtal, passing through the towns of Schuld, Altenahr and Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler. Between Remagen and Sinzig (south of Bonn), at about 50 metres (160 ft) above sea level, it flows into the Rhine. The length is roughly 89 kilometres (55 mi), of which 68 kilometres (42 mi) is within Rhineland-Palatinate. The Ahr has a gradient of 0.4 percent in its lower course, and 0.4 to 0.8 percent in its upper course.
Source of Ahr in Blankenheim

The Ahr and its tributaries are a main drainage system of the eastern Eifel. The watershed is approximately 900 square kilometres (350 sq mi)."
