Very nice view indeed! :-)

I've never heard of Krausbegturn or Dernau, I take the former to be a mountain and the latter to be a town? I notice the fields, which really draw the eye. At first I thought them terraced, but perhaps the lines are just access. I'm not sure if the fields are as steep as they appear, or if it is an optical illusion, though the course of the zig zag road strongly suggests it's too steep for a direct road.

The fields on the right, almost like an amphi-theatre, do appear very steeply sloped - in fact the one just above the trees, the darkest green one before the buildings appears to be completely vertical, to farm that would seem to require some skill at abseiling! :-) That surely is just an illusion of the image! (-:

What is the crop they are growing?

Unfortunately, the function for displaying on the map does not work for me. Otherwise you could see that the Krausberg is a mountain at the river Ahr and the village Dernau lies directly at this river.
And all these villages on the Ahr have been intensively cultivating wine for centuries.
Hence the terraced structure of the landscape.

By the way, the best Pinot Noir in Germany is produced on the sunny steep slopes of the slate soils there. There are people who even claim that it is the best in Europe, better than French Pinot Noir. I cannot judge that.

Thank you! I did wonder if it was grapes being grown! :-)
