Tips

  • Vanessa Kopp

    Koblenz Castle is one of the last residential castles that was built in Germany immediately before the French Revolution. In the Second World War, the electoral building was destroyed except for the outer walls, but rebuilt in 1950/51.

    There is a terrace garden open to visitors on the Rhine side. There is a café in the castle. The other rooms are used for concerts, celebrations and festive banquets.

    The Electoral Palace in Koblenz was the residence of the last Archbishop and Elector of Trier, Clemens Wenzeslaus of Saxony, who had it built at the end of the 18th century. Later, the Prussian Crown Prince and later Kaiser Wilhelm I resided here as the Rhenish-Westphalian military governor.

    Today the castle is the seat of various federal authorities. It is one of the most important palace buildings of French early classicism in southwest Germany and, along with Wilhelmshöhe Palace in Kassel, the Prince-Bishop's Palace in Münster and the residential palace in Ludwigsburg, is one of the last residential palaces to be built in Germany immediately before the French Revolution.

    The Electoral Palace Koblenz is one of the most important palace buildings of French early classicism in southwest Germany and is one of the last residential palaces to be built in Germany immediately before the French Revolution.

    Today the castle offers exclusive rooms for festive banquets, meetings and family celebrations in the middle part.

    The freely accessible, exclusive Grand Café invites you to visit. Towards the Rhine there is also a freely accessible, wonderful terrace garden.

    Elector Clemens Wenzeslaus had the electoral palace built between 1777 and 1786. The Prussian Crown Prince and later Kaiser Wilhelm I resided here as Prussian military governor from 1850 to 1858. In 1944 the electoral palace was destroyed down to the outer walls and rebuilt in 1950/51.
