City Map

City Introduction

Koblenz is a city located in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate at the point where the river Mosel flows into the Rhine. The city’s history goes back to the years before the birth of Christ, when the Romans founded a military settlement in the strategically good place. Koblenz’s name comes from the Latin name confluentes, meaning confluence, which alludes to the two great rivers.

The most famous place in Koblenz is the Deutsches Eck, which is the place where the Mosel flows into the Rhine. Deutsches Eck is a large square where you can go all the way to the rivers and enjoy the beautiful scenery that is here. In the square you can see Koblenz’s famous equestrian statue of Emperor Wilhelm I. The statue was erected in 1897 as a monument to the emperor’s role in the German unification in 1871.

Koblenz’s old town lies south of the Mosel and west of the Rhine. In the neighborhood there are many pleasant streets and squares such as Münzplatz, where you can see the city’s old mint building Alte Münze, which was the mint for the Electors of Trier. Not far from here is the Florinsmarkt with the Florinskirche church, and you can also go to the Liebfrauenkirche, which was built from the 13th century.

On the Rhine is the large and beautiful Kurfürstliches Schloss, which was built in the 18th century as a residence for the Archbishop and Elector of Trier. A little north of the palace is the Basilica of Saint Kastor, which was built in its original form in the 8th century. At the basilica, you can take the cable car over the Rhine to Festung Ehrenbreitstein, a high-lying fortress with a beautiful view of the Koblenz area.

Day Trips

Mainz, Germany


Mainz is the capital of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate and is located at the point where the river Main flows into the Rhine. The city’s history goes back to the Roman foundation of a fort in the first century AD, and the place was the capital of the province of Germania Superior. Mainz later became one of the most important cities of the Holy Roman Empire, and it continued to be a strong German fortress in the defense of the west.

Mainz was subjected to massive bombardments during World War II and the area’s French administration wanted to rebuild a model city inspired by Le Corbusier’s urban planning, which was only partially realized with the interesting mix of new and old that you can see in the center of Mainz today. A fine example of modern architecture is Arne Jacobsen’s town hall building on the banks of the Rhine, while you can see old Mainz with half-timbered houses in the quarter south of the cathedral.

Wiesbaden is the capital of the state of Hesse and, after Frankfurt, it is the state’s largest city. Wiesbaden is also an ancient city, founded by the Romans in AD 6. Beautifully situated between the Rhine river and the Taunus Mountains, the city is famous for its hot springs, which the Romans used extensively and which can still be enjoyed in several places today.

There are many sights in Wiesbaden, and you can start at Schloßplatz, which is surrounded by interesting buildings. The neoclassical city castle from the first half of the 19th century is today used as Hesse’s state house. The castle complex also includes the Kavaliershaus and the Wilhelmsbau next to the castle. Wiesbaden’s Old Town Hall and New Town Hall from 1887 and the Protestant Marktkirche are opposite the castle and are all worth seeing as well.
