Impressive church

The church is an oasis in the busy tourist centre of the town, very peaceful. There is a pleasant open air café, and it isn't far to walk to the river walk.

The church is colorful, both inside and outside, and full of beautiful art. While the architectonic form is rather heavy and the verticality out of proportion with the horizontal dimensions, the overal color scheme maintains a formal unity in the building. Especially the stained glass windows in the gallery on the right are worth looking at. Interesting is the fact... More

this church is very simple and poor. Its situated nearby a marketsquare and an giftshop. Nearby is also a shoppingstreet. But that street is not recommended by me.

Visit St Severus - a beautiful Romanesque church in Boppard. An ancient Church on an even more ancient site. Sit and enjoy the peace - or be lucky and be there when the organist is playing. the magnificent notes soaring upwards to the heavens above. Some wonderful stained glass, particularly the more modern windows. And bells - if you are... More

A beautiful old church with wonderful stained glass windows, right in the centre of the village. There was not a charge to enter when we were there. The steple can be seen far away from the village and was beautiful at night

We didn't have much time as we were with the coach, so got a leaflet from Tourist Information in the Marktplatz, and went into the nearby St Severus. It is a very handsome building, with lovely windows. Glad we went inside to look round.

We visited this church just as a saxophone quartet were about to give a recital. It was a really nice way to spend an hour and the interior if the church is so beautiful.

If you are in Boppard, by all means visit the church of St. Serverus. Its right in the middle of town, and is the tallest structure in Boppard. The church is late Romanesque, and has lovely painted arches inside. The community has donated a lot of lovely stained glass windows so you will be very impressed. The organ is a... More
