Romantic Rhine... Boppard
In the heart of the Rhine Gorge, Boppard has a premier location right on the banks of the river. In all directions are historic towns, steep vine clad hills and dramatic castles which cling to the mountain tops and look down on the important waterway. All day long barges trundle up and down the river, often en-route from Switzerland to the mouth of the river in Holland. Visitors can relax in riverside cafés enjoying both the views and the local wine. With the Mosel nearby, this is a super touring destination. Our hotel has a premier location in Boppard, overlooking the river.
