Ehrenbreitstein Fortress is one of the most impressive sights in Koblenz and an important part of German history. The fortress was built in the 16th century and today it is one of the largest preserved fortresses in Europe. The fortress is located on a hill high above Koblenz and offers a breathtaking view of the Rhine Valley.
One of the best ways to reach the fortress is by cable car, which starts from the Deutsches Eck. The cable car rides in a spacious cabin and offers a spectacular view of the Rhine Valley, the fortress and the city of Koblenz. The ride takes only a few minutes, but it is an unforgettable experience.
Once at the top, visitors can explore the fortress and experience history firsthand. Ehrenbreitstein Fortress has been expanded and rebuilt several times over the centuries and offers a fascinating mix of architectural styles. Visitors can explore the various buildings, ramparts and towers and learn more about the life and history of the fortress.
A special highlight is the Fortress Museum, dedicated to the history of the fortress and the region. Here visitors can admire an impressive collection of weapons, uniforms and other historical artifacts. There are also regularly changing exhibitions dedicated to different themes.
