Boppard Lake & Mountain Holidays

Boppard in Germany, on the banks of the Rhine, is nestled amongst the picturesque hills of the Loreley Valley in the heart of the Rhineland. The romantic Old Town offers cultural and architectural delights from across the ages. As a noted wine centre, it is bursting with wine taverns offering fine selections of Rhine wines.

Boppard is full of stunning vistas of the surrounding scenery, not least the spectacular 'Four Lakes View', which can be enjoyed by taking the chairlift up to the Rhine Plateau. The remains of a Roman Fort surrounding the town centre is one of the best examples in Germany.

Attractions

The Roman Fort

Wherever you go in Boppard, you will be reminded of its Roman history. The remains of the Roman Fort surround the town centre and are the best example of this kind of structure in Germany. You will find it in the Angertstrasse in the town centre of Boppard. The ruins are open-air and you can visit at all times free of charge.

 

The Electoral Castle

The Rhine valley around Boppard could be called the Valley of the Kings because you won't find so many castles, stately homes and forts concentrated in such a small area on any other river. Most of the Rhine castles stand on the hills but Boppard's castle stands right in the town centre, directly on the Rhine.

 

Boat Trips

To experience the Rhine valley from the river is a highlight of every holiday in this part of Germany.

 

The Chairlift to Gedeon's Corner

Another highlight of your holiday in Boppard will be a trip on the chairlift from the valley station in Mühltal to Gedeonseck. From here you have a fantastic view of the largest bend in the Rhine. Just a few minutes' walk from Gedeon's Corner you will find the Four Lakes View, which shows you the Rhine like a chain of sparkling lakes. The chairlift takes you up to a height of nearly 240 metres and the journey lasts for 20 minutes each way.

 

Round Trip With The Rhine Express

This holiday train takes you around Boppard in about 30 minutes. You start off at the Romanesque-Gothic St. Severus Church.

 

Hunsrück Mountain Railway

Two viaducts, five tunnels and a wonderful view. The rail journey from Boppard-Buchholz-Emmelshausen takes you through forests and is one of the most delightful mountain railway routes in Germany.
