Zum Grünen Baum

Top choice wine bar in Bacharach

Dating from 1421, this olde-worlde tavern serves some of Bacharach’s best whites; the Weinkarussel (€22.50) lets you sample 15 of them. Its nearby Weingut, by contrast, is state of the art. Owner Friedrich Bastian is a renowned opera singer, so music (and culinary) events take place year-round, including on Bastian's private river island with its own vineyard.
