Boppard, Germany

St. Goar

Our coach bus dropped us at St. Goar for the river cruise. Since the boat will not be arriving for an hour, we walked along the river and around the shopping area. The shops usually sell German novelties like cuckoo clocks, beer steins, and Birkenstock shoes. The town was pretty nice and quiet which was perfect for a stroll.

After the boat cruise, our tour guide took us to wine-tasting at a store named Vineum Vinothek. The local wine seller introduced us to their collection of red wine, white (silvaner) wine and Eiswein. lasheng!:) I liked all the wines we tasted so we bought their red and white wine sampler and a bottle of Eiswein. I love that Eiswein is sweet but not dessert sweet, like a hard drink sweet. Since it is difficult to produce as the grape has to be grown at -7 degrees at a specific number of days, it is more expensive than the other wines but we got it a discounted price because of the tour.

Rheinlust Hotel Boppard

Germany is consistent with their big hotel rooms. After check-in, we had a big buffet dinner at their dining area.  The buffet included various starches, meats, desserts and ice cream. There was a band and some members of the tour sang and danced.

The following day, our coach driver took as to a place overlooking Boppard and someone decided to go with the sound of music. :p
