Bacharach am Rhein

With winding streets lined with half-timbered buildings, cozy taverns, and a castle providing an unbeatable view of the river, Bacharach is the quintessential wine town. Though the streets are filled throughout the day in summer, the tourists thin out a bit in the evenings. The warm glow of sunset on the vineyards and cool breeze from the river make it a perfect spot to enjoy a glass of riesling.
