About Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, Koblenz

The fortress looks over the Rhine and Koblenz from a hill. Its fame is due more to its role as an important cultural centre rather than any architectural beauty. Here you’ll find several museums:

  • Haus der Fotografie (photography)
  • Haus der Archaologie (archaeology)– explores Koblenz’s archaeological history.
  • Landesmuseum Koblenz (temporary exhibitions)
  • Haus des Genusses
  • Three Historical Gardens on the roof– Stone Age, Roman and Modern

If you book a guided tour of the fort, you’ll be lucky enough to be shown around by an actor who’ll adopt a historical persona for your amusement.

Check out Cafe Hahn GmbH for some excellent Prussian cuisine at the fortress. The fortress is also the location for the Koblenz Youth Hostel– if you can, stay there. It has a great view of the city.

Hands down the best way to get to the fortress is by cable car– a 900 metre ride that crosses the Upper Middle Rhine Valley and offers splendid panoramas as it soars above the river.

Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, Koblenz Reviews

  • The fort here is one of only a handful of significant fortifications in Germany to have survived. The well maintained maze of corridors and intimidating walls is worth visiting to experience the dark and dramatic remnants of the last major fortification period before modern warfare rendered them obsolete. The fort also offers excellent views of the city and Rhine valley.

  • Fantastic setup, very interesting and great fun too look around and discover all the different passageways of the fortress and learn about its history. On top of that, a spectacular view of the rivers. The staff were very professional and friendly.

  • We came early so the shop was closed (plus side is we didn't need to pay for a ticket). A lot of areas were open, so we got to see the inside of the fort and read some of the portraits. There were some signs and explanations in german only, would have been great if everything could get an english translation (especially the electronic signs and interactive screens). Due to the cold weather the sky rail was shut down so we didn't get to ride it and enjoy the view, better luck next time.

  • After 6pm it's free entry. The castle has a relaxing vibe. Mind you when we went it was not busy. The surrounding cafes and restaurants are also great place to eat.

  • Very interesting and great views. Helpful staff.
