  • Nice place to visit. The cable car over gives a nice view of the Rhine. I wished I had more time to visit. The light show was very nice as well. I wished they had more markers showing were to go for things.
  • I've been living in Germany for 35 years and I wasn't aware this existed. An awe inspiring fortress located on the right side of the Rhein that can be accessed from Koblenz via cable car across the Rhine river. The ride above the Rhine alone is worth the trip to Koblenz. The fortress offers plenty to explore including a few museums and a restaurant. Totally recommended!
  • You can go there by cable car. The fortress is not luxury but magnificent. We can enjoy nice view.
  • Understand why this fortress was built overlooks where River Rhine and Moselle meet
  • Beautiful place, although a lot of the individual exhibitions are quite small / limited. Wine museum is very interesting
