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.

Glacier Express & The Majestic Rhine
16/Jun
Alan
5 stars
“A lovely itinerary by train through Switzerland via Basle and Davos to Zermatt with its views of the Matterhorn and trips on the Filisur, Glacier Express and Gornergrat railways on the way. An experienced tour manager accompanied us on our journey where everything was arranged for us. And that was just the start of our journey. We boarded the Amadeus Star at Strasbourg for our Rhine river Cruise to Amsterdam with stops at Speyer, Rudesheim, Koblenz, Cologne and finally Amsterdam and the train home. The ship and its staff were amazing, as was the food. We met some interesting people too. Everything pretty much ran like clockwork. That was one of the 'Greats' in Great Rail Journeys for us.

“The rail journeys to and from the river cruise were very good, 1st class and comfortable. I felt the time spent in Strasbourg docks (Monday afternoon and Tuesday) looking at shipping containers was not the best start to the cruise, but by Wednesday the scenery changed and we enjoyed the ‘majestic’ Rhine. Unfortunately our cabin had a plumbing problem, with water leaking under the carpet and although we were offered an alternative cabin, the alternative was not the same standard we had paid for so we decided to stay in our cabin and endure towels on the floor every day to absorb the dampness on the carpet. That aside, we enjoyed the river cruise and excursions. The food was very good and the staff onboard were excellent.
