The mighty fortress Ehrenbreitstein was built at the beginning of the 19th century under Prussian leadership on the foundations of a blasted previous building. Due to the proximity to France Koblenz should be particularly secured and from the fortress, the entire shipping traffic on the Rhine and Moselle was monitored.
Until 1918 soldiers were stationed at the fortress, after which it became the property of the Land Rhineland-Palatinate. The fortress now houses a museum, various restaurants and a youth hostel. At the Federal Garden Show 2011, the freely accessible parade grounds were also redesigned.
The fortress has the following opening times:
April to October: 10am to 6pm
November to March: 10am to 5pm
7 € for adults
€ 4.50 for pupils and students
