According to the town archives, the town of Bacharach was mentioned for the first time back in the 9th century. In the Middle Ages, trading in wine and timber, and also the Rhine toll, made Bacharach the richest village in the Palatinate. The town is surrounded by vines and old towers, which were part of the former town wall from the Middle Ages. The pretty half-timbered buildings give a real authentic charm to Bacharach. During the visit, you will see many things, including some beautiful wood-panelled houses, St Peter’s Church – one of the last Roman buildings to be constructed in Germany – the old post office with its prestigious inner courtyard, an old house dating from the 16th century and the market square. After the visit, you will be offered a drink to toast friendship. There will be some free time before the coach transfer back to Wiesbaden (an hour’s transfer approximately) where the boat awaits.
