One Day in the Rhineland  ::  Part IV – Boppard

Boppard is a very nice town full of charming hotels and restaurants coaxing you to relax and stay a while.  Once called Baudobriga, the city was a Celtic settlement until it was swallowed by the Roman empire.  In the 4th century the Romans replaced the citadel with a rectangular fortress made of 28 towers connected by 30-foot high stone walls, some of which are still standing.
