  • Very beautiful Fort, with great views of Koblenz and surroundings. Very nice restaurants. Definitely worth a visit.

  • Very nice place to visit. Especially in the summer, there is more activity and the landscape more beautiful. Of course there are also more tourist, but this does not detract from the charm. The crossing by cable car up to the fort to better enjoy the scenery in height. However if you are francophone, a minimum of English will be useful to communicate or to understand descriptions of the different spaces in the fortress. The best is to take a round-trip ticket over the entrance of the fortress.

  • With the fortress of Ehrenbreitstein, you can connect the visit of the German corner. Just as you can connect a ride with the cable car.

  • Huge place to visit. Great views available over the town and rivers below. Variety of museums and exhibitions on offer inside (random ones while we were there included a collection of ice-age animal models, and a very entertaining photography collection about puns on modern day life) plus lots of obligatory war-related stuff in the fortress. Gardens outside it were quite pleasant too.
  • The views are spectacular. The fortress is vaste but not impressive. Absolutely no information in English only German.
  • Audio guides were very detailed. Perhaps a bit too much as there was a time limit on them so we had to rush to complete it all. The exhibitions are well worth spending some time in them.
  • Awesome place but shocking rude service at the Kiosk selling wine and beer. The place had just closed (10 min early) and the lady rudely demanded glass be handed over and never even said thank you when we did. Will be taking my own drinks in future.
  • Tremendously big area, lots and lots of info cards, if you're lucky you'll get some nice views of the city
