Description


Founded by the Romans, Koblenz is one of the oldest cities in Germany. Uniquely located where the Moselle flows into the Rhine, large areas of the city are part of the Upper Middle Rhine Valley UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the surrounding areas offer an unparalleled cultural landscape dotted with castles and churches. This comprehensive city guide begins with an introduction to Koblenz’s long and proud history, and then proceeds to present some of the principle landmarks and points of interest through vibrant color photographs, including the Deutsches Eck, the Ludwig Museum, the Basilica of St. Castor, St. James’s Chapel, the Middle Rhine Museum, the Old Castle, and more. The guide closes with a detailed description of Ehrenbreitstein, located just outside the city, and its imposing and majestic fortress.
