The historical and hill flanked town of Boppard attracts travellers with a taste for the finer things in life; colourful culture complements lively lanes and sun drenched valleys in which the prized grapes of Bopparder Hamm wine grow. Two thousand year old traditions are still alive amongst the welcoming locals, who pour wine and make conversation with the familiarity of old friends. The town’s pleasant and picturesque location upon the beautiful banks of the River Rhine means the stunning city combines culture, architecture and nature in a magnificent melange.
The Rhine Valley is home to Germany’s highest concentration of commanding castles, all of which are perched dramatically upon verdant hilltops that frame the town. The city’s most iconic landmark is the Boppard Castle, a stunning white structure that is testament to the town’s rich historical heritage.
The authoritati8ve spires of the St. Severus Church reign supreme over the medieval mosaic of half-timbered houses and winding lanes; elaborate altars and decorative frescoes inside make this structure one of the town’s most magnificent monuments.
Within the enticing Electoral Castle, the recently renovated Boppard Museum houses an enticing assortment of artefacts that portray the history of the town; works of its most famous sons, such as the furniture of Michael Thonet, are creatively displayed in the regal interior of the museum. Thonet is a proud export of the town and his achievements are commemorated with the many sculptures and creative examples with the exhibitions.
The traditional stone facade of the Roemerburg is not remotely indicative of the international and innovative cuisine served within; the warm and welcoming atmosphere is a perfect place in which to enjoy Italian and German fusion food. Sample signature dishes such as juicy pork loins covered in rich mushroom cream and parma ham wrapped chicken breast.(Burgplatz 3, 56154 Boppard)
