Destinations » Germany » Boppard Travel Guide
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.

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 a Roman fort in Germany. You will find the Roman Fort in the Angertstrasse / on corner of Kirchgasse in the town centre of Boppard. The ruins are open-air and you can visits at all times free of charge.
The Electoral Castle
The Rhine valley around Boppard could be called the Valley of the Kings because, on no other river, will you find so many castles, stately homes and forts concentrated in such a small area. Most of the Rhine castles stand on the hills but Boppard's castle stands right in the town centre, directly on the Rhine.
To experience the Rhine valley from the river is the highlight of every holiday on the Rhine
