The largest church in Bacharach is the protestant church of St.Peter and it dates back to the year 1094. Several times it was restored and rebuilt and it includes an interesting tomb of a nobleman called Johann Friedrich von Wolfskehl, who died in 1609. There are no admission fees and you can visit without restrictions during the day. The church is open from April until October from 9:30 am - 6 pm.

Unfortunately this is not so straightforward. St.Peter is a member of a group of churches around Bacharach. They do NOT have a church service at St.Peter every Sunday. The church service on Sundays Takes Place at different churches in the villages around Bacharach. You can look up the plan on link -> In September there what only one service on Sunday 13 / SSPs. The plan for October hasnt been published yet.

"Why does the bell ring so many times at 1800 every night?" (posted 07/06/2017)

The ringing of the bells comes from an old age and has ushered in the end of the evening that the day-laborers knew the evening was. Therefore still the Feierabend ring at 6 pm Mfg Dietmar Marckert WWW.FERIENWOHNUNG-BACHARACH.DE
