Rhine in flames

The summer highlight event.

Every year in August, the highlight event Rhine in Flames® attracts thousands of people to Koblenz. Towards evening, a colorful convoy of ships sets off up the Rhine to Spay to capture the unique atmosphere of Rhine in Flames on the return journey past several fireworks displays and atmospherically illuminated sites. At the end, the grand finale fireworks display lights up the sky above the Festung Ehrenbreitstein and amazes spectators who travel from all over the world for the impressive experience.

Meanwhile, people are also celebrating exuberantly on land with good music and fine drinks.

Sounds exciting? Then let's go ahead and plan your next stay in Koblenz!
