I was there several times. the fortress is alright, worth a visit. But the best part if the view over the river and the whole city from the fortress. Outstanding view on sunny days! The funicular (seilbahn) is also worth a try to get different views of both the city and the fortress.

Very interesting place to visit. Amazing view of Koblenz. A great day out. Be careful everything in the fortress is written in German.

Great trip (cable car) getting to the fortress. The views are fabulous. Interesting stuff in the various museums/buildings at the fortress. We ate in a very nice restaurant within the fortress. Excellent food.

The fortress itself is very impressive and always worth a visit with guests of all ages. However, my person favorite is the great view over Koblenz especially the "Deutsches Eck". Watch out for the various events and concerts throughout the year. "Lange Nacht der Museen" (a night with all museums open till midnight), "Rhein in Flammen" (fireworks over the Rhine")... More

Very interesting, rambling spot. We had a wonderful time wondering around and taking in the views. I wish it had been a nice day. It would have been wonderful to hang out in the wine garden or in the area outside the restaurant on a nice day.

For a nominal admission fee, this complex represents the best and largest of Prussian fortress construction in the early 1800s. And the view down to the confluence of Moselle and Rhine rivers is worth the price of admission alone. Combine with a cable car ride across the river!

It's easy to appreciate the beauty of the Deutsches Eck from the vantage of the Seilbahn cablecars up to the Festung Ehrenbreitstein. A kombi ticket takes one across the Rhein up to the Fortress, where it is easy to get lost (happily) in a maze of thick walls, slit windows, and vaulted passages containing museums on local history, archaeology, wine...

It is one of the best things you can do in Kobleny Just take the cable car on a sunny day and enjoy a walk and the really excellent view on Koblenz and the river. Tunnels, corridors and inner courts for your delight and also lots of intersting things like uniforms, wine etc showcased. Excellent also for business events.

The fortress is huge! But it was lovely to see the various displays and also the city's archaeological museum as I walked around. I can only have touched on a small part of it but what I saw was very interesting and I enjoyed wandering through the tunnels and corridors. The various displays included wine making, military uniforms and life,... More
