Questions and answers about Koblenz, what do you have to see?

What is the most famous landmark in Koblenz?

The most famous landmark in Koblenz is the Deutsches Eck, where the Moselle flows into the Rhine. There is also the equestrian statue of the former German Emperor Wilhelm I.

Are there also sights away from the Deutsches Eck?

In any case! For example, the city has a well-preserved old town with many historic buildings and churches such as the Old Department Store, the Church of Our Lady or the Schängelbrunnen. A visit to the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, which towers high above the city, is also worthwhile.

What can you do if you like being outdoors?

A nice option is to take the cable car to Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, from which you have a great view of the city and the Rhine Valley. You can also walk or cycle along the Rhine, for example on the popular “Rheinradweg” cycle path.

Are there also cultural highlights?

Yes, definitely! The Forum Confluentes regularly hosts exhibitions and events on various cultural themes. The Koblenz Castle and the Middle Rhine Museum are also worth a visit.

Which culinary specialties should you try?

There are many regional specialties in Koblenz, for example the "Koblenzer Sauerbraten", which is served with raisin sauce and potato dumplings. The "Koblenzer herb pan" with various types of meat and vegetables in herb butter is also very tasty. For dessert, we recommend a "Koblenzer Käsekuchen" made with quark and raisins.
