This Gothic Revival 19th century palace was completed in 1842, commissioned by Frederick William IV of Prussia. After WWII though, it was returned to the city. Far more beautiful than the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, the palace was used by the King as a summer residence. Its guests included Queen Victoria. Today, the castle remains more or less as the King left it, full of paintings, weapons, armour and furnishings. There are some pretty gardens too, and a wonderful view over the country scape.

Looks very nice from outside, but it is closed until april. There is anyway a nice park where walking, with a nice view over the river. The castle is on top of a hill, so it takes a 10 min walk to reach the top, but the path is smooth. Nice for the babies who can run free. There is a parking at the bottom, but not that big.
3 star for castle, 5 for the hill! It begins with creepy walls (like old movie) and then when you go up... it's kinda romantic...
Absolutely loved it. I visited Koblenz for a day during my German exchange. The castle is beautiful. I went on it through the zip line, which i would highly recommend. My favourite part was smelling the different types of wines.
A pretty castle that you can easily visit from Koblenz with public bus! Almost all parts of the castles were newly built/restored but some interiors and furnitures are quite old and you will be given slippers so you don't ruin the wooden floors. You could only visit with a guided tour (cheap) in German, but if you don't speak German you'd be given a small flyer that contains whatever the tourguide is explaining to the group. Taking photos are only allowed on the outdoor grounds and garden.
The guide also talked in a child-friendly manner about the castle's history. It's only a short, but nice visit. You also get a great view on the Rhine.
