Koblenz is one of Germany’s most dramatic settings.
The city has a colourful history. Its roots date back to Roman times, but due to its strategic importance has been captured and destroyed several times. As a result on a stroll through its cobbled streets, cosy courtyards and flower filled parks you will come across spectacular medieval churches sitting harmoniously with pavement bars and cafes.
The river banks are a constant magnet during your time in Koblenz. Where the two rivers meet you will find ‘Deutsches Eck’ (“German Corner”) and a memorial to William The Great.
There are many other cultural points of interest to take in during your coach visit to Koblenz, including the Liebfrauenkirche (Church of Our Lady) the St. Castor Basilica, and the playful Schängelbrunnen fountain features a cheeky little boy spitting water. Be careful he has a good aim!
The imposing Festung Ehrenbreitstein fortress, now a museum, is always keeping a watchful eye on you during your coach break in Koblenz. Take to the skies across the Rhine on a cable car to learn more about the intriguing history of the castle and pause on the battlements to photograph the rivers below.
One of the best ways to discover the beauty of Koblenz is on one of the many river cruise boats which gently meander the waters. You can discover Koblenz on a dedicated Rhine river cruise holiday with Caledonian Travel. Browse our breaks today.
Due to its location, Koblenz is great place to sample the wine from the famous Rhine vineyards. You can learn more about the history of German wine at the Wine Village, where you can also try a tipple or two.

A highlight of the market sees the magnificent baroque town hall to see its 24 windows turned into a life-size advent calendar. Another great time to visit is during the annual Rhine in Flames Festival in August when the river comes alive with a fireworks extravaganza.
