We trekked our way along the old wall to the tower. It was a bit of a hike, so be ready for that. Once at the tower, you will experience a great view!

Find the small trail through the vineyards, climb 3 minutes through a vineyard, and climb a few flights of stairs. Reward: excellent view of Bacharach with the Rhine river in the background.
