  • The Basilica Minor St. Severus in Boppard is a jewel of Romanesque architecture and highly recommended for lovers of exceptionally beautiful churches. Of course, the concerts and church services are recommended.

  • The Catholic Church of St. Severus in Boppard comes from the 12-13th century. It was built on historical ground. Boppard was formerly a Roman castrum under the present Church took it for renovation works, the remains of an earlier Church from the 6th century, and many archaeological finds from the Roman period. A special feature of this excavation, is a walk-on early Christian baptismal font, which can be visited today under the Severus Church. What is also worth noting, not Christ as otherwise in church Abbildungenüblich, represented with a Crown of thorns, but with a King's Crown, victorious over death. One more feature, like mentioned in this church, is this, that was the current Pope Franziskus in 1985 for two months in Boppard to guest. And this beautiful church has had without knowing it, the present Pope at his walls to guest services. God's ways are unfathomable... St. Severus of Ravenna is the patron saint of this church. The Pope Franziskus, that rose in February 2015 St. Severus in the status of a Basilica minor (small Basilica.) is an honorary title which a Pope may confer a significant church building since the 18th century. Certainly the good memory of Boppard and St. Severus, this decision had been the current Pope Franziskus. This is still the info. The steeples are probably from the 12th century the entire Church was built in the 13th century. According to documents insight, St. Severus was inaugurated on 13 by Archbishop Theoderich December 1237. Extensive renovations were performed from 1963 to 1967. 1997 was again fully refurnished, and the reopening of the present Church took place in 2011 with a Pontifical high mass. From the market place side, a barerefreier access to the Church was created.
