Wer gemütlich und mit wunderschönem Bur... more »The King Chair of Rhens is located in the world heritage Upper Middle Rhine Valley, between Koblenz and Mainz, approx. 10 km south of Koblenz immediately above the B 9. Who moves comfortably and with a beautiful view of the Castle from Koblenz to Mainz, has only about 1-2 minutes detour include (departure: Waldesch, despite construction of the B-9 from accessible). The King Chair has a history that goes far back to the high middle ages: first 1273 a preliminary discussion by the four Rhenish electors (namely the archbishops of Mainz, Trier, Cologne and of the count Palatine in the Rhine) to the election took place in the walnut Garden on the banks of the Rhine "to Rhense" Rudolph of Habsburg held. Subsequently the town was place multiple Royal elections and so the stone King Chair to the coronation / presentation of the King was built. History buffs on the boards built especially at the foot of the King Chair to learn more. Today, the King Chair is a relic from the past with beautifully above the small town of Rhens (with its medieval city wall), from which to make a particularly on "Rhine in flames" beautiful view of the Rhine, the passing ships, the Bengal fire on the Rhine River, and even the Fireworks has. Connected with a walk by Rhens, this is a beautiful place, each on the 2nd Saturday in August to see the Fireworks against 22.00 (at onset of darkness). But it is also to note that this place is very popular and quite well attended to "Rhine in flames", so that even though there is a small parking, early arrival is recommended - (you can connect it with a stop in the gastronomy of Rhens). The King Chair for wheelchair users and people who can climb any stairs is inappropriate: the building has approx. 25 levels, which must be exceeded to reach the observation deck and is therefore not accessible. However the view is hardly less nice around so that you can attend from the parking lot of the fireworks. Nearby is the so-called "Jew"Grove with an old Jewish cemetery. There are two approaches:-a walk Hinan snaking to the Königsstuhl mountain... Run time approx. 15 minutes - the L 208 in the direction of Waldesch follow (caution: you is further above currently blocked until 2017, but in this area still legitimately passable), until it has reached up behind the wooded area (after 2 great curves). Park there and then the footpath bends to the left. Runtime: Max 5 minutes
Die Geschichte um dieses Bauwerk ist sehr interessant - ein Besuch lohnt sich immer! Von dem Bauwerk hat man einen sagenhaften Blick auf Rhens und auf den Rhein. more »The story of this building is very interesting - always worth a visit! The building affords a fabulous view of Rhens and on the Rhine.
A nice place with a lot of history to look in the Rhine Valley. Don't forget to read the information boards.
Small parking area. Legible signs, interesting.
Curious. Rebuilding nineteenth-century site where crowned Kings, after being destroyed by Napoleon's troops. If you're a fan of the Lord of the rings will find a similar suspect with "Amon polla".
Easy to reach. Worth a visit in any season.
