City Fortifications
Ranked #2 of 27 things to do in Oberwesel
Attraction details
Reviewed 20 October 2013

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.

Enjoyed the walk around town on the old castle wall. Even climbed one of the towers. The views were breath-taking!

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
