Tips

  • Sebastian Kowalke

    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

    Entry:
    7 € for adults
    € 4.50 for pupils and students
    3,50 € for children

    118 meters above the Rhine, the fortress offers the most fantastic view of Koblenz and the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle rivers. Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, the second largest preserved fortress in Europe, was built in its current form between 1817 and 1828. Its origins go back to the year 1000. Today, in addition to the State Museum Koblenz with its diverse exhibitions (e.g. on the history of technology and archeology of the country, on the history of the fortress with over 20 exciting stations, multimedia presentations, etc.), the fortress also houses the Army Memorial and the Koblenz Youth Hostel.koblenz-touristik.de/kultur/sehenswertes-koblenz/festung-ehrenbreitstein.html

    The museum tour is very informative and leads to the various rooms of the fortress. The herb garden can also be visited on the circular route. There is also a changing theme exhibition. It is worth visiting the fortress more often.
