  • The story of this building is very interesting - always worth a visit! The building affords a fabulous view of Rhens and on the Rhine.

  • The Königstuhl is a point of interest in Rhens-but whether that also has historically been, and to what extent. ... There are different the opinions quite about it. In any case, the construction work is not original. Rhens is the place for centuries connected to the electors of the Rhine, because this was the place where the four small States came together. In 1273, this was the place where the electors met to discuss the choice of Rudolf of Habsburg. In 1346 was the future emperor Charles IV elected King here. The actual Köningstuhl, a two-story stone structure with an open superstructure was built in the last decade of the 14th century. It was a kind of balcony of the Rhineland and a kind of ' super throne ', in a walnut orchard on the Rhine. Rupprecht von der Pfalz here took the oath of allegiance of the electors of the Rhine. He did that on the way of the election place Frankfurt to the coronation place Aachen. Destroyed by the French in 1795 was the Köningstuhl, and rebuilt in 1842 by the large Rhine vessels. To do this, the finances were obtained by a large fundraising campaign, to which the King of Prussia itself participated! After the discovery of the mineral springs in Rhens was also rebuilt at this 1929 broken down and rebuilt on the current spot. Monument? Original? Authentic? Not really so, but based on historical facts-and in this form. But this is certainly not the only monument that in this way through history is ' shaped ' into what it is today. Incidentally, the complete history of the Stuhl is read on a stone in the monument itself. Another historical fact? Very long the Königstuhl served as a place where the Mayor of Koblenz Office chain received, and where the mayors of Koblenz on Whit Mondays and Rhens met. Not a monument so in order for to drive, but to it if you're there anyway along drives!
