    The Koblenzer Tor or Michaelstor is part of the Electoral Residenzschloss. The gate construction spans the road to Koblenz. Elector Clemens-August had the gate built in 1751-57. It served the Knights Order of St. Michael as an archive and meeting room. In the lateral gateways were formerly guard and customs offices. Remarkable are the strongly emphasized pairs of columns, which in conjunction with the electoral coat of arms cartridge give the door a particularly representative character. Above are the personifications of the four virtues of the Order of St. John: piety, perseverance, strength, and faithfulness. The centerpiece is the gilded lead casting of the Archangel Michael.

    Inserted in the baroque east wing (so-called "gallery wing") is the representative Koblenzer Tor. It is a baroque, three-story gatehouse, which differs in its architecture clearly from the rather bare and not plastically shaped building of the main building. The construction spans the present federal highway 9 to Koblenz. The Koblenz Gate was also called the "Michael's Gate" because the large hall in the middle building level was originally used as the seat or meeting place of the Order of St. Michael.
