05.07. - 07.07.2024
In 1975, some residents of the old town started this festival to draw attention to the urgency of the (now completed) Altstadtrenovation. From humble beginnings, a large festival has developed that has a good reputation beyond the city limits. Music and entertainment are offered on all squares. Here you can also meet real "Schängel", listen to "Kowelenzer Platt" and possibly even hear one or two "Stekkelcher", stories from the everyday life of the people of Koblenz, some of which have only been passed down orally.
