The most popular tourist attraction in Boppard is the Bodobrica Fortification, an old Roman fort built in 360 A.D. In its day, it had 28 towers and served as a commercial center as well as serving as a fort. It measures 308 x 154 meters; the walls are 3 meters thick and 9 meters high. It is the best preserved Roman artifact north of the Alps.
This is our travel group. Oops! Jeffrey is not here. He may have been ill that day. A couple of kids were photographing the fort, so we asked them to take our picture, and they obliged. I’m glad they did not run off with m camera, but they seemed to be pretty good guys.
I took a photo of this phone booth because they are an endangered species in this country.
I cannot resist photographing swans. They take such elegant poses. Well, it’s time to get back on the ship.
Another castle under restoration. Somebody’s dropping a few euros on this job!
I like the way the color of the vineyard compliments the color of the building.
A few more scenes as the ship floats downstream.
Our next post will be in the of Trier, the oldest city in Germany.
