Welcome to Koblenz!
The World Cup or an Expo in your own country, or even an 850-metre cable car ride of superlatives over the Rhine signify just some of life’s unique moments. Anyone who has ever been on this ride will never forget the special experience.
Visitors can only enjoy a bird’s eye view - from one of the 18 cabins - of the UNESCO World Heritage site Oberes Mittelrheintal (“Upper Middle Rhine Valley”) until the end of 2013. Enjoy spectacular views over Deutsche Eck (“German Corner”), where the Rhine and Moselle rivers meet.
The route takes visitors from Konrad-Adenauer-Ufer (the riverside) up to the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress mountain station. Every stone is imbued with history here, including modern history, because the Prussian fortress complex has been completely renovated for BUGA and enhanced with modern architecture and contemporary gastronomy.
You can look forward to exploring one of the finest German cities on the way down. Visitors to Koblenz can walk in the footsteps of the Imperial Age, stroll through the shops in the Old Town, eat mouth-watering food, and sit on the steps to the Rhine watching ships, walk along the banks of the Moselle, and much more.
Welcome to the city of Koblenz, have fun and enjoy your trip!
