    In addition to the market square with ox fountains and various picturesque half-timbered buildings, you should stop by in Rhens am Rhein at the Königsstuhl. From 1273, the electors met here for preliminary discussions on the election of the German king. 1346 took place with the election of Charles IV the first royal choice at the king chair in Rhens instead. At the end of the 14th century, a building was built on which the electors would designate the future king.

    After its destruction in the war turmoil of the Napoleonic Wars in 1795, the king's chair was demolished in 1806 and rebuilt in 1842 by the master builder Johann Claudius of Lassaulx.

    I came to Rhens via the RheinBurgenWeg. Stage Koblenz-Rhens.
    One comes in to the Viehor and stands in the old town with its imposing medieval city wall, old half-timbered houses and remains of medieval fortification towers. Very nice.
