advice on what to do in Bacharach and around?

Hi

We will be staying in Bacharach at the youth hostel on 29 and 30 March. We will arrive late on the 29th but then have all day on the 30th and most of 31st in the area.

Does anyone have any advise on what we (mum, dad, 12 and 10 year old) should do?

thanks

Bacharach is really pretty and great for hiking and just walking around. Also, you can rent bikes and then cycle along the river Rhine, take the ferry over and cycle back on the other side of the river. It is really easy, safe with cycle paths and good fun!

Not much going on in Bacharach, as a rule. Bacharach tends to be fairly sedate, a bit more of a destination for the older crowd than for families with kids. Try Rheinfels Castle in St. Goar.

There's a waterpark facility w/ indoor pool in nearby Rheinböllen:

Boppard is a larger town with more to see and do, but you'll miss the opening of the chairlift ride by a day.

Marksburg Castle is across the river and north, in Braubach:

I enjoyed a walk down the Rhein towards Oberwesel for a view of the Pflaz toll castle.

town wall tour Bacharach

Klettersteig (via ferrata) Oelsberg

…goar-oberwesel.de/tourismus/wandern/kletter…

Start point is Oberwesel, the next close town to Bacharach.

For a Klettersteig an easy one. Well suited for families. What is required are good hiking shoes and you need to be free from giddiness of course.
