“Too modern!”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

I think they have over renovated this attraction and it appeared to me to be more a eating and entertainment center

“Great view”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

We took our family on a cable car ride across the Rhine to this fortress. Kids were 7,5 and 3 and it was a very hot day. The cable car ride was very cool. Once you got to the fortress, it was a bit of a walk to get to where you can see a view, which is kind of all this had to offer for us. Things were written in German so it was hard to determine what we were looking at. It's a great view and picture opportunity of the Deutshe Eck (where the rivers meet). There's a small playground which you can get to walking along the view area. But with little kids, and so much walking without a lot of payoff, our time would have been better spent checking out other castles and such. But if you don't have kids in tow, probably worth it for the view.

“good but they could do a lot more”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

this fort is massive and takes a long time if you want to explore the whole thing... although there is a lot to see out side there is a lot inside that you want to see but mostly the inside is not open to visitors
enjoyable visit and exciting cable car ride over to the fort made for a very nice afternoon

“Must see in Koblenz”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

If you only do one thing when you're in Koblenz this has to be the thing to do. We started by taking the cable car over the Rhein. That in itself was one of the highlights of the visit. The fortress is spread over a large area so be prepared to walk when you visit. There were plenty of interesting parts to the fort and the kids were even interested in the various rooms and fortifications.There are spectacular views over Koblenz from the top.You can view the area where the Rivers Mossel and Rhein meet. The staff were friendly and happy to help. Part of the fort has been turned into a youth hostel so if you're on a budget this would be a great place to stay. Don't miss the roof garden.

“Beautiful Sunset”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

We really enjoyed walking around the grounds and sat and watched the sunset over the rivers Rhine and Mosel. Absolutely beautiful. We took the aerial tram up and down and was pretty going over the river and seeing the sites of Koblenz from above.
