Koblenz choices...can I get some advice?

by ddschur

During an upcoming river cruise we will have a choice while in Koblenz.

One choice is to take a guided walking tour of Old Town.

The other is a guided tour of the 13th century Marksburg Castle.

Any recommendations?

Thank you in advance.

Marksburg is really interesting, photography is no problem inside of the castle and it is really impressive.
Koblenz is a nice town like you may see it in many places
Marksburg is an original castle, never destroyed, the only minus might be that at some places you have to walk like in the middleages on rocks, no even pavement at some places, it was left just like it was built !

The castel is impresive, and last time I was there (in early March)they were doing some restauration work.
I personaly would choose the walking tour of Koblenz, visiting the Greman Corner, the old Town,the museums....
The history of Koblenz is very interesting, many houses from the 1500s.
Chek www.koblenz-touristik.de/en for inspiration and what is on offer, than make your mind up.
Happy travels, Koblenz is truly beautiful town.

Re: Koblenz choices...can I get some advice?

by delcity

a little note from a tour guide friend. for many years there was a rumor that the people that lived near koblenz and the marksburg castle in germany had the ability to fly like peter pan.
this rumor was investigated by the church . the church did a report that they found no evendence that people from this area could or could not fly . however there was a plant that was growing here that the church had never seem before.
if one smoked this plant it would make you think that you could fly and do some other weird things.
but also in a church in a town near marksburg on the wall was a painting of townspeople flying like peter pan near the marksburg and a nearby castle.

Travel Tips for Koblenz

Make sure you see the Fortress...

by Mr_Edd_20

Make sure you see the Fortress Ehrenbreitstein, and Duetsches Eck. My best memory of Koblenz was trying to find a way into Fortress Ehrenbreitstein. We drove like an 1.5 hours to see this castle and it was closed. So instead of give up in defeat, we took a risk and tried to get in anyways. We ended up being on the wrong side jumping fences and stuff trying to get in, until we were totally blocked. So we turned around in defeat, and started to cross the river when we noticed little people looking over the edges of this castle. It was open!! so we walked to the entrance, which was an uphill battle the entire way to the castle. We were fools jumping fences to a castle already open! And I could have drove my car up to the castle parking lot, but instead we walked and jogged! What a workout

Kobern-Gondorf - just 10 km west of Koblenz

by globetrott

Kobern-Gondorf is a great place to go to from Koblenz as a daytrip, maybe in combination with Burg Eltz, Muenster-Maifeld and other villages along the river Mosel / Moselle. In Kobern-Gondorf you will drive through this interesting building on my 2nd-5th pictures: It is the " Schloss von der Leyen " , an old castle, and there was no other way to build a road, than to lead it through the innercourt of that old castle. Get out of your car and take a look around that castle, it has plenty of great details to be seen.
Not far from "Schloss an der Leyen" is another castle, Schloss Liebig. Inside Schloss Liebig you will find one of the best and most exclusive restaurants of the Mosel-valley.

Burg Katz - 25 km upstream from Koblenz

by globetrott

Katz & Maus (cat and mouse) seem to belong togeather and in fact Burg Katz is opposite of Burg Maus in St. Goarshausen, about 25 km upstream from Koblenz.
Burg Katz was destroyed by Napoleon in 1806 and reconstructed again at the end of the 19th century. Nowadays you may not visit the castle,because it is owned by the German ministry of finances and used for the recreation of their employees.
St.Goarshausen is opposite of St.Goar and quite close to the famous Loreley-rock. In St.Goarshausen you may still see some old towers - remains of the medieval townwalls.
The name "Katz" (cat) comes from the count of Katzenelnbogen, who owned quite a lot of castles along the Rhine.
__________________________
In St.Goarshausen the valley is quite narrow and I may NOT recommend to stay overnight there in a hotel - the trains are running through town all day and night !!
Instead drive on top of the Loreley-rock , it is just about 5km from St.Goarshausen and there you will not hear these noises !!

more cafes on "The Plan"

by aminata about several cafes

There are several cafes and restaurant on the square "The Plan". It is an important meeting point especially in summer. Prices and quality vary, sometimes you only pay for sitting on such a nice place. So look for prices.

Deutsches Eck

by globetrott

Deutsches Eck is a place of history and also the place, where the river Mosel (on the right of my picture) flows into the river Rhine and on my main picture I was looking out through the arcades inside the large monument at Deutsches Eck, read more about this monument in my next tip !
This place is a Must, when you are in Koblenz, it is also a nice walk along the banks of both rivers with plenty of restaurants, cafes and benches to relax.
Opposite of Deutsches Eck you may see Festung Ehrenbreitenstein at the river Rhine / Rhein and a nice camping-site at the other bank of the river Mosel / Moselle
