The Jesuitenplatz

Framed by historic buildings

The square in the heart of Koblenz Altstadt received its name from the religious community of the same name, which worked on this site from 1580 to 1773. The Jesuits took over a Cistercian convent founded in the 13th century and rebuilt it.

The castle-like Jesuit Gymnasium with its towers and magnificent portals on the south side of the square was built in 1694-1701. Since 1895, the City Hall of Koblenz has been housed here (City Hall Building I).

In the southeast corner of Jesuitenplatzes is the former Jesuit Church (today Citykirche). It was built in 1613-17.

In the center of the square, surrounded by beautifully decorated town houses, is the monument to Koblenz physiologist and anatomist Johannes Müller, dating from 1899.
