Oberwesel, Germany - Rhine, Home of Riesling

Oberwesel, with its accessible historic town walls and moat is known as "the town of towers." Sprinkled with half-timbered houses, Oberwesel offers 6 historic restaurants and 8 vintners/wineries with tasting rooms for all to enjoy.

Schonburg Castle watches over the town with its 2 Gothic churches, the Liebfrauenkirche (Church of Our Lady) and St. Martin both dating from the 1300s. Today the spacious castle houses a hotel with a restaurant and private gallery. An International Youth Hostel has been built next door. The footpath leading from the center of town to Schonburg Castle is a 30-minute stroll.

You’ll be staying in the area known as the Middle Rhine. Oberwesel is located on the west side of the Rhine below St. Goar and above Bacharach. This area is world-renowned for its wine. The endless hills of vineyards provide a beautiful backdrop for a hike or boat ride along the Rhine. The wide bike paths along the Rhine make this a most enjoyable area for cycling, getting to know the region in a much slower, more intimate way. You can easily rent a bike by the day or week, and some landlords even provide them for your enjoyment. The bakery museum in town is worth a visit, as well as a trip to the various bakeries to enjoy the local specialties.

Oberwesel has a nice variety of restaurants, butcher shops, bakeries, souvenir shops, banks with ATM, tourist information office, and coffee shops. From May through October, the Middle Rhineland region has many festivals including the famous Rhine in Flames, which takes place in various villages along the river. This spectacular display of fireworks takes place on barges and hills along the river and builds to a crescendo that makes the river appear as if it’s on fire.

From Oberwesel, you can easily take long day trips by train to Koblenz and further on to the Roman city of Trier with its magnificent Roman ruins. Discover other unique villages in the area on the Moslem River, or head to Cologne to visit the awe-inspiring cathedral. Shorter day trips along the Rhine are accessible by the KD boats. All you have to do is decide when and where to disembark as you cruise up and down this mighty river, where 30 different castles decorate a 10-mile stretch.

An Explanation of the Ratings:
The first column of figures is the highest score possible in each category. The column on the far right is the score for this particular apartment in this category. For this set of ratings, we have asked every Untour staff person who has seen the apartment to rate the individual features. Many of these staff people have been in a position to hear reports (good and bad) from customers over the years, so they offer a particularly well-informed perspective. Nevertheless, customer ratings will be included in the overall ratings as soon as possible.

Please keep in mind that tastes vary. These ratings give an overall sense of how most people feel about a factor; you are in the best position to know if your tastes and requirements are likely to be in the mainstream of opinion or if you have particular needs. If you have any questions about the meaning of any of the factors rated, or about this apartment, please call our office toll-free at 1-999-868-6871. You can nearly always talk directly with someone who has personally seen the accommodation.
