Koblenz

Situated at the meeting point of the Rhine and Moselle rivers, Koblenz takes its name from its position at their 'confluence'. The modern town has ancient roots that go all the way back to the Romans, who established a strategic settlement and military stronghold here in about 8 BC.

In later years, the Archbishop-Electors of Trier moved their court here, and under their influence Koblenz was expanded in a neo-classical style by the late 18th century. They also built the mighty Ehrenbreitstein Fortress. Completed in 1832, the fortress was never attacked and today the magnificent complex houses a fantastic museum with exhibits on the region's history. As well as being one of Koblenz's best-loved attractions, the fortress also affords a wonderful panorama over the town and the rivers.

Koblenz marks the northern end of the Rhine Gorge UNESCO World Heritage site; as such there are many views of the beautiful surrounding area to be seen from the town.

There are also a number of attractions in Koblenz itself. As well as the beautifully preserved Old Town and popular river promenades, there is 'Deutsches Eck' (the German Corner). Set on the corner between the two rivers, the monument was originally a tribute to Kaiser Wilhelm I but now stands as a fitting monument to unified Germany.

The Majestic Rhine (Rail and Cruise)
13/Oct
Mr Howells
5 stars
“An excellent rail/cruise. The Tour Guides were extremely helpful and supported the tour without a hitch, The Amadeus boat could not be faulted, and the on-board crew and staff were first rate. The tour was well thought out and it was well worth the trip.

The Majestic Rhine (Fly and Cruise)
13/Oct
James McNeil
4 stars
“We had a little bit of an issue with BA cancelling our outward flight at short notice but the GRJ managed to get things sorted out. From boarding the boat to us flying back from Amsterdam, the service was great from both the GRJ team and boat crew. God's balance of cruising and choices of excursions.

Jungfrau Express and Rhine Cruise
12/Oct
Mr David Dewdney
4 stars
“We both really enjoyed our first cruise of any type. Our tour guide for the Jungfrau Express part of the trip, Ian Boyle, was the best we have experienced whilst travelling with your company. Organised and adaptable, he provided all the information we required and more; for example, we would have been unlikely to discover the boat tour of Strasbourg which we greatly enjoyed. We enjoyed our hotel in Strasbourg, being pleasingly large and situated near the station. Whilst we found some of the fittings in the hotel in Interlaken a little tired, we enjoyed the experience of eating on the 14th floor with its stunning views. The cruise ship was excellent and we can't speak too highly of the staff. The cabin was excellent and spacious and we enjoyed being able to unpack the suitcase, but being able to visit different places and will go on another river cruise in the future. The only negative was on the last day when we had to get up very early to travel on a coach to Brussels rather than a train from Amsterdam. Whilst we fully understand the problems of obtaining the train tickets, we were first told that this issue was a one-off, but later discovered it had been a problem all summer. Yet, this was not mentioned at all in the information pack received a fortnight before the trip.
