Coblenz for bon vivants
The Romans named their important settlement on the confluence of the Moselle and the Rhine “Confluentes”. Coblenz, the gateway to the UNESCO World Heritage Middle Rhine valley, is still today one of the most fascinating cities in Rhineland-Palatinate. Enthralling guided city tours are ideal to get to know all of its facets. There are tours at night, tours through the medieval Old Town or through the gardens and parks, tours by bicycle, tours with wine tasting or with geocaching, tours to the palaces and castles… Whatever you do, don’t miss two unforgettable experiences: namely a trip on the glass cableway from the Deutsches Eck high above the Rhine to the Ehrenbreitstein fortress, one of the biggest in the whole of Europe, and a visit to the new Romanticum. Its multimedia exhibition world sets the whole range of emotions and treasures of Rhine romanticism from the past centuries as a sensory counterpoint to the spectacular modern architecture that surrounds them. Whatever you decide to do in Coblenz: with the KoblenzCard, you can travel on the public transport network for free for 24 hours, and there are free guided city tours and sharply reduced admission prices to cultural and touristic highlights. Incidentally, thanks to its active and young theatre and concert scene, Coblenz will make you want a lot more than just a day trip – the evening also belongs to the city!
