Overview

Via ferrata Boppard / Bopparder Klettersteig is an iron route in Germany. It is located in the province Rheinland-Pfalz in the western part of Germany. The route leads through the southern part of Bopparder-Hamm, a vineyard in the Rhine-valley (german: Rhein) north of the town Boppard. The route isn´t very difficult, but it has some ladders and some exposed passages. You can enjoy the fantastic overview of the rhine-valley from the route and the descent. You need 1:15h - 1:30h for the via ferrata and 30 - 45 minutes to descend. The descent follows the hiking route on the top of Bopparder-Hamm to the south, back to Boppard. On the descent are two very nice cafes where you can enjoy the view from the top of Bopparder-Hamm. It is possible to use a old cablecar for descending to St. Remigius-Platz from the top of Bopparder-Hamm.

Here you can see an overview-picture and a map of the via-ferrata.

The river Rhine is such a huge heat reservoir that you havn´t to bargain for snow in the winter. So this via ferrata is climbable the whole year.
