Discover Oberwesel, a charming medieval town on the Middle Rhine. Enjoy panoramic views over the old town as you walk on a path on the two mile-long town wall, which winds around the spectacular Altstadt or town center. Gaze out from the remains of one of the 16 historic guard towers, from where you can see the railway line, laid in 1857, and the river beyond. Nearby, the 12th century Gothic Church Liebfrauenkirche is a beautiful sight with its intricate stained-glass windows and majestic architecture. Oberwesel also boasts several other churches and chapels that have stood the test of time and now offer insights into the town’s rich history. Located in the Rhine Gorge, a UNESCO World Heritage site, a walk around town also offers glimpses of local life, such as residents engaged in fishing, trading and selling handicrafts at the quaint market.
