“What a view!!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Great ride to get all the way there. Beautiful buildings, and nice place to enjoy a wheat beer! A must-see if you go to Koblenz.

Very large impossing fortress overlooking the Rhine Mosel junction, very cold when we were there, interesting exhibits although no English translations

“Festungspark For An Interesting Open Space”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

My 4 year old and I took the cable car from Duetsch Ecks in Koblenz to Fortress Park on the other side of the Rhine. Cable car was a treat at €7 for both of us return (one student and child free). The park is interesting in a modernist way. Great open space with a grid of pathways leading to various points. The avant garde viewing platform was worth the trip up to the hill alone. Great wooden design leads to a lookout over the city of Koblenz, Deutsch Ecks where the rivers Rhine and Mosel meet.
Second best in the area is the children's playground. Again, avant garde design, shows how playgrounds can be interesting for young and old alike. Very clever design and enjoyed by both of us.
Well worth an hour or so visit whilst in Koblenz. We didn't bother with seeing the fortress this visit. Would have required extra time and entry fee. Festungspark is free, or included in the cable car ticket.

“Good view but not much more”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The cable ride up and the view when you get up are great. The castle itself is in my opinion somewhat boring. That would probably have been different if I had read up on the history of the place beforehand.

“Really cool, a lot of history”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

I am big history buff, and even I learned a lot at this little known fortress. Don't miss the Prussian soldier's show or the light show in the caverns of the fort. Also, bring your camera--you have great views of the Deutches Eckes and Koblenz. The cable ride to the fort from Koblenz is amazing and half the fun!
