The guide

The Festung Ehrenbreitstein, located on the rocky spur above the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle rivers, is today considered part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site "Upper Middle Rhine Valley". The site is part of a system of military fortifications around the city of Koblenz, but impresses not only with its 5,000-year history, but also with a magnificent panorama and a lively cultural center with interesting exhibitions. During the one-hour guided tour, you will experience how history comes to life on the basis of original historical sites, from the fortifications of the Romans to the castles of the knights and the Prussian fortress analogy.
