The guide

You are immersed in the Prussian Koblenz of 1870. The fortress of Koblenz and Ehrenbreitstein is under siege because of the Franco-Prussian War. Special care is taken by the military, police and the ten night watchmen who patrol every night to ensure the safety of the citizens.

In this scenic tour of the city, you will accompany one of these night watchmen on his evening tour of the precinct around the Liebfrauenkirche. True to the motto "zom Liere es-et nie zo spät", you will be introduced to the history and stories of the historic Altstadt.
