    The so-called city of towers is characterized by its city wall with its 16 towers. On the former fortification you can walk around. Further attractions in Oberwesel are, for example, the Liebfrauenkirche and the striking St. Martin's Church, whose church tower was expanded in 1350 to a fortified tower.

    Oberwesel is also one of the largest wine-growing communities in the Middle Rhine. On the 72 hectares of the steep vineyard Schönburg Castle, the winemakers mainly grow Riesling, Müller-Thurgau and Kerner. How about a tasting?

    Along the city fortifications, Oberwesel is at your feet. At the same time, medieval flair emerges through the city wall and shows the former expansion of the city of Oberwesel.

    A very nice place located on the Rhine with many half-timbered houses, churches and squares.
    Absolutely worth seeing the mostly preserved city wall with the city gates.
    Above is the castle Schönburg.
    Absolutely worth seeing!
