Not Running
Sep 2019
Sound great, but it's not running, and no adverts either. Suspect it's not been active for a number of years.

Sadly not running at the moment
Sep 2017 • Couples
I was really looking forward to riding on this but we were told at our hotel thst sadly the grntleman running it has passed away and his son has not been able to continue alone so for the moment it has ceased running. We saw it stored near the railway station sadly. Hopefully the town will find a way of restoring this as it looks so good.

25mins and 5€ well spent!
Aug 2016 • Couples
We had a free afternoon in Boppard and came across this activity due to other contributors. I have to say I was not disappointed. Even my husband, who thought it was a gimmick, was impressed by the round trip this little train did.

The tour takes off at the market square outside St. Severus Church (although when we were there, the train couldn't get to the church due to road works so check notices on their display board) and takes you round important historical and modern developments of Boppard. There is an English and German commentary as you ride along, pointing out all note-worthy buildings. I was mostly surprised by the little castle blocks and paintings on normal people's homes other tourist information have not mentioned on the outskirts of Boppard.

It is worth the time and money especially when this is all for charity. The train is clearly a local favourite and icon. Many passerby waved and greeted the train with pride.

A fun way to get your bearings and hear of the highlights.
Jun 2016 • Couples
Great to have an English commentary, and a kind and helpful driver. Great fun. A small group of us wanted to go up the chair lift, so he agreed to drop us in the car park there and then pick us up to complete the second half of the tour a couple of hours later. Okay, it's not that far to walk back into the town but he gave us our full 5 euros worth.

See the best of Boppard from the train!
Apr 2016 • Friends
This little tourist train takes you by all the lovely places Boppard has to offer. There are many side-walk cafes, shops, beautiful flowers, and interesting buildings to see all over town. Boppard is located on the Rhine River, and many river cruise ships visit this port.

Fun ride around town - do it first
Aug 2015 • Couples
This ride gives you a tour of the entire town. English and German explanations at each sight. You get to see the whole town this way and then you can go visit the sights that interest you the most. Main place to get on is in the center of town, but they may let you on if you see them elsewhere.

Good quick way around the town
Jun 2015 • Family
We did this with family including my two year old. She seemed to enjoy it. We learned some Interesting facts about things around town. We didn't really see anything that we hadn't already by just walking around. But we enjoyed it none the less. They offered commentary in English as well which was helpful.

Recorded commentary in German & English

We came across this road train parked in the market place.
Boppard is not a large town so the 30mins round trip gives a good idea of places to visit later.

A Good Facility
Sep 2014 • Couples
For the modest fare, it is the perfect way to discover Boppard, passing the important sights and describing them. It provides a perspective of this beautiful town in about 30 minutes in a comfortable and informative way right from the ferry pier and back again.

Very good for the right and wrong reasons
Aug 2014 • Friends
The train was there when we disembarked from a Rhine cruise so jumped on the see the sights. It took about 30 minutes. The right reason for the very good tour was seeing where the roman ruins, church and square was. The wrong reason for the very good, that made us laugh, was the pointing out of the hospital and modern town hall.

All in all worth doing so you can get a view of what is there.
