We greet you …

About the Rhein-Ahr-Greeters

The Rhein-Ahr-Greeters is a volunteer programme that matches visitors with friendly and enthusiastic residents of the Rhein-Ahr region, including Bonn, Remagen, Sinzig, Bad Breisig, Bad Neuenahr – Ahrweiler. We are happy to share the city and region they love with families, friends, and individual travellers. The programme was initiated 2010 after some greeters in the Rhein-Ahr region saw a film clip on the Paris Greeters and were fascinated by the idea of sharing their passion and knowledge about where they live.

Recently, there is a Greeter group limited to the area, the Federal-, Beethoven- and UN- City of Bonn.

A greet (visit) with a greeter leaves a lasting impression of the city or region, the warmth of its people, and the richness and diversity of its neighbourhoods, which each visitor can treasure for a lifetime and pass on to their families and friends.

The Rhein-Ahr-Greeters’ services are available FREE OF CHARGE, and there is a NO TIPPING POLICY.
