Whilst having a quiet evening walk, looking for somewhere to eat, we found this wall and walked along it. What secrets does it hold and the troubles it has stood through?
Very well preserved city fortification walls along the most scenic portion of the Rhine. We didn't do a tour, just climbed up and enjoyed during the late afternoon.
Oberwesel has one of the best-preserved city walls in Germany. (If you are British, think Chester.) Don't miss taking this excellent and interesting walk.
Walking on top of the city walls brings you back to the early days, where fortification walls were a necessity for survival against the enemy. Nice and beautiful views over the - city of Oberwesel - and the river Rhine - called the Lorreley at that section. Highly recommended.
We enjoyed the walk our first afternoon.We climbed the tower, had nice views of the Rhine, and saw inside the attached church.
As a history lover, seeing walls, gates, towers all dating back to the Middle Ages was a wonderful experience. The whole walk took about 2 hours, but that was taking our time and not rushing at all. Do it, great way to spend an afternoon.
You can access the city fortifications with one of the several stone steps along the walls. Once up, you can walk the length between the 7 or 8 tours covering almost the length of the current town. Delightful views of both Oberwesel and the Rhine River valley
This area is charming and historic. It is rich in scenic views and castles. You can go around the area and enjoy what the place can offer.
