If you are feeling adventurous and want to try walking/hiking all the way up to the fortress from the city instead of taking the cable car, forget it! Walking there from the Ehrenbreitstein old town (where the Ehrenbreitstein train station is also located) is impossible...More

Part of a package holiday. The cable car and guide were included. If you are interested in fortifications it is a great place to spend a couple of hours. If you are not the views are good for half an hour.

Reached by cable car (see other review), funicular, or car, the former Prussian fortress designed as one of four protecting Koblenz and the confluence of Rhine and Moselle is worth seeing when there are other cultural events on. When nothing else is on, it's a...More

Give yourself at least an hour to walk around the huge fortress overlooking the Rhine river and Koblenz. Magnificent views from on high of the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle rivers.

We made our way to the fortress via a river boat and then the cable car, it was worth it if you're into this type of thing

An excellent afternoon spent at the fortress with wonderful views over the Rhine. Lots of inter sting areas to the fortress too.

Arrived by ship into Koblenz, after an hour tour of the city caught the cable car up to the fortress. Really great tour with great views. My advice give the city tour a miss and jump on the cable car.

The ride up with the cable car and the view from the castle is great and an attraction at itself. What I didn’t like about the castle is that they refurbished a lot of stuff. For instance: looking inside the guard’s quarter and finding a...More

The highlight of our visit to the fortress was the sweeping views. Almost all the explanations were in German only, which was a bit of a let down. If I was to do it again I'd look into an audio guide as the pamphlet didn't...More
