Great view to the German corner and Mosel/Rhine crossing. Interesting fortress with a museum and lots of events in spring and summer.

Liked: nice view and you are well informed about the building(s) + you have a nice view-area in the garden.
Disliked: just a few places to eat and drink + most of them were closed.

Well preserved fortress with fantastic views of the Mosel and Rhine Rivers. Fortress is massive with lots of access throughout, lots of memoribilia to view. The scenic views of the city are gorgeous with many vantage points. We had lunch in the restaurant which was absolutely delicious.

Take the short but memorable cable car ride across the Rhine up to the "Ebrenbreitstein" an 1817 Prussian Fortress, which was built on an outcrop of rock, over previous Roman and medieval defences, perched high above the confluence of the Middle Rhine and the Mosel River and which dominates the city of Koblenz.
The Military Fortress it’s self is simply vast and actually contains several smaller Museums devoted to the Wines of the region, the Archaeology, plus the Museum of Indulgence to name but three of five. We only managed to view a relatively small percentage of what was available in our 2 and half hour visit simply so much to see!
As might be expected it has displays of military uniforms and barrack life from the period 1817 through to the early part of the 20th Century. Also a collection of Prussian Napoleonic and later artillery, the Fortress is massive in every respect from its formidable construction to its spread over a vast site with outworks and other defensive positions right down to the Rhine.
There is an English Audio guide available, food and drink are also available in the huge parade ground, with fantastic views from the open air Café over Koblenz and these two mighty German rivers, which is well worth the trip alone.

Took the cable car up to here! Had to pay a little extra as there was an event on.
Well worth the trip, and to see some German history up close.
Some great views overlooking the Rhine!
Was some reenactment thing on, and the firing of about 6 cannons!
