Visually, the Alte Burg, and the old Balduinbrucke compose the whole. This is not surprising. They are located near one another on the banks of Moselle, belong approximately to the same era, although the fortress was built on ancient Roman foundation. Moreover, there were times...More

This 12th Century building stands out from the drab modern buildings that now surround it. It is unique and picturesque next to the old Roman bridge. A lovely little courtyard garden nestles at the bottom of a flight of adjacent stairs. Didn't go in ......More

There is nothing much to report to this building, although it has nice appearance but not that impressive. If you stroll along the river bank, which is a must for Koblenz, you just come across it hence there is no extra effort needed to see...More

This was a really cool building. It's right on the river and it's really large. It's worth seeing at least once!
