On watch at night

Open tour with a night watchman from 1870. Special care is required.

You are immersed in the Prussian Koblenz of 1870, when the fortress of Koblenz and Ehrenbreitstein was under siege due to the Franco-Prussian War. The military, police and the ten night watchmen, who patrol the fortress every night to ensure the safety of the citizens, have to be particularly careful.

On this scenic city tour, you will accompany one of these night watchmen on his evening tour of the area around Liebfrauenkirche. True to the motto "zom Liere es-et nie zo spät", you will be introduced to the history and stories of the historic Altstadt.
