Welcome to the Middle Rhine

Koblenz is one of the oldest cities in Germany and is still marked by its eventful history and unique culture.

The more than 2,000-year-old city is rightly part of the Middle Rhine World Heritage Site and has a lot to offer and is a decidedly great destination for history and culture buffs, curious adventurers, couples and families with children.

Go on a discovery tour.

The “Deutsche Eck”

Attraction for tourists and landmark of the city of Koblenz. The “Deutsche Eck” got its name from the settlement of the Teutonic Order in 1216 at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle.

In 1897, the monument of a horseman was erected on this site as a memorial to the German Emperor Wilhelm I. He had brought about the unification of Germany after three wars.

Koblenz – Old Town

The Old Town is the original cell of the city of Koblenz and covers the settlement area of the Roman foundation from the 9th century B.C. to 1890. Today, the Old Town attracts visitors with its many restaurants, pubs and shops. Beautiful half-timbered houses alternate with magnificent baroque buildings, picturesque squares and cafés invite you to linger. Whether the famous equestrian statue in honour of Kaiser Wilhelm I or the imposing the Kürfürstliche Schloss Koblenz – there are many sights in Koblenz’s old town.

Excursions with children

In the summertime, the Oberwerth open-air swimming pool on the Rhine and, alternatively, the city beach on the Moselle are particularly suitable. Here, not only the children but also the whole family of all ages feel at home.

The Remstecken forester’s lodge and the Kühkopf forester’s lodge in the Koblenz city forest are very popular all year round.
