St Goar or Boppard visit first?

Hi All,

I'm thinking of putting St Goar and Boppard within a day itinerary. Which one is better to visit firsthand?

I plan to visit Rheinfels ruins and stroll along the St Goar Village. I'm afraid the Rheinfels would be crowded later in the afternoon. I'd be there on mid July which is one of the highest season.

on Boppard, I plan to have a more leisurely stroll in the downtown and visit Vierseenblick and perhaps having lunch at Gedeonseck. Would the Vierseenblick be crowded too? I'd drive there rather than taking the cable car if there'd be long queue.

I have been to Burg Rhinefels lots of times and have never found it to be crowded. Lots of people just stay down in St. Goar and never go exploring through this massive fortress. Just do first, which ever town fits better in your plan for the day.
