    The building of the former Prussian government for the administrative district Koblenz and of the main tax office was built 1902 to 1906 under the direction of the Berlin secret building author Paul Kieschke and the building authority Koblenzer on the place of the former Kurtrier orphanage in the style of the William Neoromantik. Kaiser Wilhelm II himself made changes to the plan regarding the towers and roofs. His aim was to build on the Staufer period, which was regarded as the model of national greatness.The 158 m long Neo-Romanesque building, which once housed the (district) government of the Koblenz administrative district, the main tax office, still determines the image of the Rhine front today. The result was a powerful neo-Romanesque complex around two inland courtyards with side wings. The four-storey main front on the shore with a massive gabled central pavilion looks like a fort by the large corner towers and the tuff cladding of the facades. Inside there are monumental staircases with vaulted halls and outstanding stone carvings.Since 1961, the presidium of the Federal Office for Defense Technology and Procurement has been located in the former Prussian government building and after the restoration work was completed in 1993, in the southern part of the Higher Regional Court Koblenz.

    The Prussian government building in the Rhine facilities of Koblenz was the seat of the Prussian government for the administrative district Koblenz of the Rhine Province and the main tax office. The main building today accommodates the Federal Office for Equipment, Information Technology and Use of the Federal Armed Forces (BAAINBw); the former service villa of the district president accommodates departments of the Higher Regional Court of Koblenz. In the immediate vicinity is the former High Commission of the Rhine Province. Together with the neighboring Koblenzer Hof, it forms a cityscape-defining ensemble on the banks of the Rhine.

    A very nice old building, which is partly used today as a courthouse.

    At first glance you might think that it is a castle.

    Kaiser Wilhelm II made changes to the plan of the towers and roofs himself in order to tie in with the Staufer era. The result was a 158-meter-long complex built in the Wilheminian neo-Romanesque style around two inland courtyards with side wings, which still decisively shapes the image of the Rhine front today.
    Today the Presidium of the Federal Office for Equipment, Information Technology and Use of the Federal Armed Forces is located in the former Prussian government building. The Koblenz Higher Regional Court has been housed in the southern part since 1993.
