The kurfürstliche Schloss

Where once princes and kings resided.


The Electoral Palace of Koblenz is one of the most important palace buildings of French Early Classicism in south-west Germany and is one of the last residential palaces built in Germany immediately before the French Revolution.

Electoral Palace
Today, the palace's central section offers exclusive rooms for festive banquets, conferences and family celebrations. Towards the Rhine there is a magnificent terrace garden, which is also freely accessible. Elector Clemens Wenzeslaus had the Electoral Palace built in 1777- 1786. From 1850 to 1858, the Prussian Crown Prince and later Emperor Wilhelm I resided here as Prussian military governor. In 1944, the Electoral Palace was destroyed except for the outer walls, but was rebuilt in 1950/51.

The interior of the castle
In the central part of the building there are 4 rooms with a historical ambience ranging from 75-370 m².

The castle was redecorated for the 2011 Federal Garden Show, and a magnificent castle garden was laid out on the side facing the Rhine based on the historical model.

The rooms in the castle can be used for various events, including workshops, conferences, meetings or even wedding celebrations.
