This is a very modern cable car (I believe only since 2012) and so the cars are fully glass and give an excellent view over the Rhine / Mosel and Koblenz itself. This is the way to get to the fort too. The ride is...More

Beautiful views, good deal to buy a combined ticket with entrance to fortress. You can see Koblenz and the confluence Mosel and Rhine.

Not too expensive and a nice slow ride to the top so you can walk around and take in the stunning views.

We did the cable car return trip without the ticket to the fortress. It was such a hot day but the cable car was still comfortable and there was not much queue (mid afternoon). The view up and down is lovely. It isn’t a long...More

Elsewhere on Tripadvisor there are reviews for the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress. The Koblenz cable car takes you to the Fortress, but they are separate activities. There is a fee for each and a slightly cheaper fee if you choose both together. This review is for the...More

No you're right, I parked at the castle and with the combined ticket of the cable car you can also visit the castle which is worth while
