Visitors of the Koblenz Cable Car can enjoy spectacular views over Deutsches Eck “German Corner”, where the Rhine and Moselle rivers meet. There is even the possibility of a bird’s eye view - from one of the 18 cabins - of the UNESCO World Heritage site Oberes Mittelrheintal.
The cable car takes visitors from Konrad-Adenauer-Ufer (the riverside) up to the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress mountain station. From the ”Ehrenbreitstein” Fortress, which rises 118 meters above the Rhine river, opens a fantastic view over Koblenz and the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle at "Deutsches Eck".
“Ehrenbreitstein” Fortress, Europe’s second largest preserved fortress, was constructed between 1817 and 1828 in its present-day design. Every stone is imbued with history here, including modern history, because the Prussian fortress complex has been completely renovated for BUGA, the Federal Horticultural Show in 2011, and enhanced with modern architecture and contemporary gastronomy.
