Boppard, Germany

It's no surprise that the Rhine River region is one of my favorite parts of Germany. Mainly because of the wine (THE best Riesling in the entire world...I will fist fight anyone who tries to tell me otherwise, so watch it ;) ), but also because of the adorable towns that are littered up and down both sides of the river. Aside from Bavaria, the Rhine River region has to be one of the most beautiful areas in Germany. Better than the Black Forest, even. I can say that because I've visited quite a few of these little towns along the middle-Rhine and have photographic proof to back it up. Friends, feast your eyes on Boppard, my new favorite Rhineland town. Not only does it have that kitschy German fairytale feel that you crave when visiting Germany, but it also boasts some spectacular views of the Rhine from the Sesselbahn, a chair lift that takes you soaring high above the Rhineland vineyards. After roaming around Burg Eltz, we decided that Boppard was a place Nancy & Mark absolutely had to see. We wandered the streets, treated ourselves to a few bottles of Riesling, took a ride on the Sesselbahn, and had a nice riverside dinner complete with schnitzel and, you guessed it, more wine! This place is perfect for a leisurely afternoon enjoying all the wonderful things Germany has to offer. I know I've said this a million-and-a-half times on this blog, but go ahead and add this one to your bucket list, too. Another German gem worth booking flights for, ladies and gents. Your room at Haus Coté is ready and waiting. :)

Cheers to a wonderful Wednesday, friends!

  13. If you have the chance, look into doing a Fire on the Rhine dinner cruise. They are in September and October, you eat dinner floating past castles and other pretty stuff along the Rhine. After it gets dark they light the hillsides with flares and have a huge fireworks show.
    We went a couple of years ago and it was simply amazing! We started in Koblenz and ended in Oberweasel (I think). It was seriously one of my favorite things we did in Germany.
