Old Town Fest
In 1975, some residents of the old town initiated this festival in order to draw attention to the urgency of the (now completed) Altstadtrenovation. From its modest beginnings, the festival has grown into a major event with a reputation that extends beyond the city's borders. Music and entertainment are offered on all squares. Here you can still meet real Schängel, hear "Kowelenzer Platt" and possibly even enjoy one or the other "Stekkelcher", the stories from the everyday life of the people of Koblenz, some of which have only been passed down orally.

Schängel Market
3 days, 4 stages, 100,000 visitors. That is the Koblenz SchängelMarkt, the largest folk and city festival in the northern Rhineland-Palatinate.

Live music with well-known bands or newcomers are just a few of the many musical highlights on this weekend. Fashion shows with the latest fall and winter fashions for the coming season provide an attractive change.
