    The Ehrenbreitstein fortress offers a magnificent historic setting and excellent views of Koblenz in permanent exhibitions constantly different behind its walls, which are included in the ticket price. Distributed over the year also many musical and others are offered events inspire not only tourists. In combination with a cable car ticket for return trip by the Deutsches Eck a worthwhile cultural experience in a world heritage Middle Rhine. And all even completely disabled, proud achievement. Also food and beverages will be taken care of.

    Who nothing of interest here .... that is satisfied with nothing. It is a huge fortress. That is for the most part. Several museums are located in different buildings. Everything included in the price. Good food on the terrace overlooking the Deutsche Eck and shipping on both rivers. You can be here all day sweet.

    Castle is always worth a visit, but not a "must see". There are what exhibitions but these are small and not so special. You can view from within the great establishment ever so this is great. At the end you have a nice view over the city. We had a combi ticket with the elevator so it is fun to make. Tip: you can park your better to the castle to so with the cable lift to the city. Then you have free parking, you'll see the view and take the cable car. We were parked in the Center underground. That costs 12 euro for a day, you need a end steps and the cable car again pay ...

  • 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
