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

stands right in the town centre, directly on the Rhine.
