After hiking up through the vineyard to the top of an old tower we were greeted with this wonderful view of tranquil Bacharach.


One of the prettiest of the Rhine villages, tiny Bacharach – 24km downriver from Bingen – conceals its considerable charms behind a 14th-century wall. From the B9, pass through one of the thick arched gateways under the train tracks to reach its medieval old town filled with half-timbered buildings.
