Boppard once a Roman fort, lies on the upper Middle Rhine, often known as the Rhine Gorge.
Directly north of Boppard, is the biggest bend in the Rhine, it is called the Bopparder Hamm, although this name is more commonly applied to the winegrowing area found along it.
The best known lookout point over this bow in the Rhine is the Vierseenblick, or “Four-Lake View”.
This vista gets its name from the way in which the Rhine can be seen from here.
Hill's block out most of the view of the river itself so that visitors can only see separate patches of water, rather like four lakes.
These are all actually parts of the Rhine, there are no lakes to be seen.
The Vierseenblick can be reached by chairlift.
