Places of interest

Boppard is located in the valley of the Loreley and is a town of superlatives. It lies on the largest loop of the Rhine, Europe's most visited river. In the old quarter you will encounter reminders of the town's turbulent past at every turn. The Carmelite church is filled with a variety of fine sculptures and carved tombstones. The Castle of the Prince-Electors is one of the most impressive fortresses in the Rhine Valley.
Old quarter
In the ancient centre of the picturesque old quarter you can find stone monuments and traces of almost 2,000 years of history. The "Bodobrica" Roman fort is the best preserved example of a Late Antiquity fortress north of the Alps. The late-Romanesque Church of St. Severus on the market square is a prominent feature of the town's skyline. On a stroll through the town you will encounter traces of famous people who once lived and worked here.
Boppard Carmelite Church
This church is part of a former Carmelite abbey and is one of the main examples of 14th century church architecture on the Middle Rhine as well as being one of the foremost world heritage sites for art history. Boppard was the third oldest Carmelite settlement in Germany. In 1294 the Carmelites received permission from the Archbishop of Trier to acquire the land and build an abbey. The construction of the church began in 1300 and its choir was completed in 1330.
Castle of the Prince-Electors
Boppard Castle, also known as the Castle of the Prince-Electors, is located right on the banks of the Rhine and is one of the most imposing fortresses in the Middle Rhine region. Following the invasion of the town in 1327 by Baldwin, the Archbishop Elector of Trier, there were several years of rebellion against this forced occupation. In 1340, in order to demonstrate his power, the Archbishop had Boppard Castle built as a stronghold and siege castle. The square keep with its machicolated battlements and four corner towers gave it the appearance of a fort but following extensive reconstruction and development in the 16th and 17th centuries it no longer resembles a moated castle.
