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.

Right in the centre of the town, this church is a lovely sanctuary where you can spend a moment or two in quietude. Superb stained glass windows light up its spacious old interior and there is a really calming feel to the place. Interesting artefacts dating back to Roman times are also on display and, although only captioned in the... More

This church was built in 12th and 13th centuries, and is one of Boppard’s landmarks although dark inside, if you are taking photographers, use a good flash-gun. A booklet is available on the church for a small donation. The Crucifix which hangs above the altar depict the cruxifitction of Jesus Christ, note his feet are apart and not nailed together... More
