“Weinhaus Weiler, Oberwesel, Germany”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

Disliked nothing; Oberwesel is a beatiful village on the Rhine River. Peaceful and quiet yet very accessible from Frankfurt and Koblenz. Be sure to take a day cruise on the Rhine. K-D is the primary provider and offers multiple options alllowing one to get off in all of the villages and return to you point of origin later in the day. The castles and scenery on the voyage is outstanding.

Nice old town fortifications give wonderful views of the castle, towers, village, and Rhein River. Walk the length to see the whole village.

“Very nice and well preserved.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2012

That well preserved and very beautiful rocky city wall is, indeed, the best thing to do in the wine town of Oberwessel.

The walk around its path is very interesting and, in some parts, provide nice views as well.

It is worth a stop for stroll a bit by this old fortification.

This is a nice thing to do on a sunny day and to get to see a bit of the town of Oberwesel. Follows the river and leads to one of the towers for a nice view of the town
