This attractive town has a long and surprising history. Take a chairlift to the top of the hill for a great view of the valley and the river, enjoy a glass of wine at a local tavern and watch the water traffic on the river or bicycle along the Rhine promenade. You might also consider visiting Saint Severus Church, whose twin towers dominate the waterfront. Stop by the Boppard museum to see exhibits on native son Michael Thonet, who developed the technique of bentwood furniture in the 1840s.
