Why go?At the "Deutsches Eck" (German Corner) where Rhine and Moselle meet, Koblenz dazzles like a jewel set in richly varied scenery.
Visitors on the trail of Koblenz's past find themselves caught up in the history of a town which over the centuries was captured by the Franconians, chosen by dukes (electoral princes) as residence, occupied by the French and ruled by Prussia. It is a truly European place!
Take the new aerial car up to the Ehrenbreitstein fortress in Koblenz! At almost 850 metres in length and carrying up to 7000 passengers per hour, the aerial cable car is one of the largest of its kind in Europe outside the Alps. The breathtaking trip across the UNESCO World Heritage Site `Upper Middle Rhine Valley´ and up to Ehrenbreitstein Fortress will be one of the highlights of your visit.
Fortress walls and towers, castles, residences, monuments and parks paint a convincing picture of the city's eventful past. Emperors, dukes and kings have resided in Koblenz. Visitors from all over the world are fascinated by the buildings and cultural heritage they left behind.
