  • This is an interesting fortress with a history that goes back thousands of years. The opportunity to inform and educate visitors about this past and how it shaped the present is immense.

  • Great view of Deutsche Eck
  • Fantastic location, nice view on Koblenz very good for sight seeing.
  • Castle like castle nothing special but from overthere is amazing view on Koblenz and surrounding.
  • You'll have to visit this place if you're around here. Spectacular view of the landscape and to the Deutsches Eck. There is some catering here, and a little museum. Very nice.
