Offers on site

Roman fort

Situated directly on the bank of the Rhine, this fort looked imposing in Roman times because of its size. Today the remains of the Roman complex surround the centre of the town and are the best preserved Roman fortification walls in Germany. You will find the freely accessible site in Kirchgasse, at the corner of Angertstrasse, in the heart of Boppard. It can be viewed at any time.

The Elector’s Castle – Watching over and dominating Boppard

The Elector’s Castle is a medieval stronghold directly on the river bank. Dominating the town with its massive design and mighty tower, it bears witness to the impressive claim to power of its builder, Archbishop Baldwin of Trier. The strong fortifications were designed with various aims in mind: to safeguard the territory, to demonstrate the presence of the ruler to the citizens of the town and, last but not least, to ensure that the coveted duty levied on the Rhine continued to flow into the Elector’s coffers. Like many castles along the Rhine, the castle in Boppard has experienced an eventful history over the centuries – destruction and expansion, and also changes of owner and use. For some 100 years, it has accommodated the town museum with its famous Thonet exhibition.

Taking the Rhine Cycle Route through the Rhine Valley

Boppard is situated directly on the 120-kilometre-long Rhine Cycle Route which follows the Rhine on both banks from north to south. Everywhere the landscape offers you something special to discover.
