Stayed in the charming Bellevue Hotel which overlooks the river Rhine. It has a swimming pool, sauna and steam room. It offers wine tasting in its very own candle lit cellar. Lovely food and hospitality.
Boppard was a Roman Fort which the town developed and it's origins are still clear.
We opted for a three hour river cruise to St Goar with guidance and information of the splendid castles and points of interests along the way. We had a two hour stop to explore so walked up to Rheinfels Fortress and Castle ruin. The fortress is now a luxury hotel which we enjoyed drinks on the exquisite sun terrace enjoying spectacular views over the Rhine.
The Sesselbahn chairlift takes 20 minutes to the top which is not too scary and can transport bikes. The panoramic views from Gedeonseck & Vierseenblick overlooking the Rhine valley are majestic. We took an extended walk in the forest before walking down through the lovely woodland. No maps are needed. Mountain bike trails look challenging along with a stunt park which is not for the faint hearted.
We discovered a mustard mill and took an interesting tour with tastings. We bought Reisling, herb & Orange mustards. Three completely different tastes but equally gorgeous.
Boppard has a central square which is pedestrianised dominated by the historic St Severus Catholic Church which is worth a tour along with the Carmelite Church a few minutes away. Bells ring every 15 minutes and chime hourly with an early morning Bell call to prayers.
There is a quaint Teehause which is the oldest half timbered house dated 1519. It's still a small tea shop.
Try the wonderful train ride to Emmelshausen which travels through woodland, tunnels and impressive viaducts.
We also took the 10 minute train ride to Koblenz ... Wow wow wow is all I can say.
