Koblenz Cable Car - a very special experience Hover over the Rhine in the Cable Car and discover the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress. Experience the unique views over a city with a tradition stretching back over 2000 years where the Rhine and Moselle rivers meet. Enjoy the spectacular Cable Car journey and take a stroll through the beautiful fortress grounds to discover the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress with its wonderfull Exhibitions and events. We look forward to welcoming you!
We took the cable car up to the fortress on a rainy day, and found it safe, comfortable, inexpensive, and very well run, with continuous service. Bring ID if wanting the senior discount. The views from the top are sensational, and the small restaurant nearby a nice convenience. Best of all, however, was the stonework and grounds of the fortress-very nice!

This is not a museum, it is a collection of the German army that is still in use for instruction and study, keep your passport ready at the entrance.
Biggest collection of various types of weapons ever seen, allow yourself enough time to visit this place because there is so much to see.
Bring your own snacks and drink, no cafeteria in the building.

First, to reach the castle by bus from the Central station is relatively convenient. Second, it looks well-preserved. In fact, its share has fallen a lot of misfortunes. But in the 19th century, the city Koblenz gifted it to the Emperor Friedrich Wilhelm IV, who restored, repainted and overbuilt it, adding an internal garden and neo-Gothic chapel with two towers and made a completely luxurious interiors. The view to Rhine from here is amazing. On the opposite bank Lahn river flows into Rhine and is located another famous castle Lanek.

If you visit Koblenz, you definitely want to stop here. It's interesting to see where the two rivers meet and learn a bit about the statue. I wouldn't make a special trip to Koblenz just to see the statue/ German Corner. But, of course, go see it if you are in town!

This UNESCO World Heritage site boasts incredible stonework and amazing views of the valley below. Re-built after the 1801 destruction by France, it features all the expected components of a fortress, but on a massive scale. Allow plenty of time to walk around, and an extra half hour at least to enjoy the grounds. We were there on a rainy day, and appreciated the coffee shop nearby. The cable car up from Koblenz is a pleasant adventure even before arriving at the fortress.

Unfortunately, we arrived early and the church was locked up, so we couldn't see inside. IF you pass the museum and go past the modern sculpture garden, there is a flower garden and beautiful view of the church. There are views from out front, but you will need a wide angle lens to get the whole facade in.

How can it be modern when it was established in 1613? Well, it was destroyed in 1944!! The portal (1617) was preserved, but the interior contains some marvelous art pieces from its rebuilding!

The Schangelbrunnen Fountain features a little boy who periodically spits water a surprising distance to catch people unaware. The city of Koblenz has been claimed by both the French and German countries. When it was part of France the local people were required to use French names for their children, which included Jean (pronounced John), which morphed into Schangel. This Fountain is in memory of the time when the city was French and the little boy is a prankster. It is very cute. The water travels different distances to catch viewers by surprise.

The Liebfrauenkirche dates back to the 5th century. The church had been converted and extended several times using the original foundations the chancel was built around 1404 but the Baroque dome towers date from 1693. It was beautiful.
