“Very Nice Gardens and Statues”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

My wife and I only walked around the outside of the facility, but it was a very beautiful building with great gardens and statues located directly on the Rhine river. If you have pretty weather, it definitely worth checking out!

“Beautiful gardens”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Decided to walk to the Electoral Palace while walking around town. Not sure if you can actually see the palace inside, but we just walked through and went out in the gardens out back, toward the Rhine, and I took some photos. Lovely view of the fortress.

I think there's a coffee shop inside.

Elector Clemens Wenzeslaus was the first Elector who left his former residencial city Ehrenbreitstein switched Rhine riverbank: 1777 until 1786 he had the Electoral castle decorated in the French classicism style. After French Revolution the Elector had to flee in 1792, later he left Koblenz forever.
1850s – 1857s Prince Wilhelm took the Office of Prussian military Governor at this castle. He was later known as Emperor Wilhelm I, for whom at the 'Deutschen Eck ' a monument was erected. Together with wife Augusta he resided at the Electorial castle. Empress Augusta gave the landscape architect Lenné the order to shape the Rhine riverbank (nowadays the beautiful Empress Augusta-boulevards). 1944 the Elector palace was damaged up to its outer walls; 1950/51rebuilt. Now it serves the Gouvernement and is not open to public. Federal horticultural show ' 2011: the middle part of the castle will be open to the public in the context of events and congresses and will be accessible again.
