The tower itself isn't much to look at, but the view of the town from the tower is beautiful, to say the least. It's a little bit of a hike to get to, but it's worth it.

Take a walk through the town and up to through the vineyards to this tower. Its a less demanding hike than the one up to the Castle Stahleck where you get the best views of the town. But the views of the Rhine valley from here are an easy second. Not much to see other than the tower structure itself and the views but still recommended.

You've got to climb up to this tower! The views are spectacular. I think I even prefer these views over those from the castle. It has these cool little archers' lookout holes too. Awesome!

The tower has been completely restored early 21st century and in May 2005 made publicly accessible. The somewhat difficult road to the Postenturm is well worth the effort as one is rewarded with a unique panorama of Bacharach, it is one of the most beautiful vantage points on the "secret capital of Rhine romanticism". The “posts” is a very famous vineyard in Bacharach of which the tower’s name is derived from. This steep slope as “medieval townscape view” is one of the most painted and photographed sites in Bacharach and thus became world famous.
