Vier Türme | Koblenz

The Four

Towers are an ensemble of four historic buildings in the old town of Koblenz,

at the intersection of the streets Am Plan - Löhrstraße - Altengraben -

Marktstraße.

 

 

e four

houses with the artistic oriel towers were built in 1608 and, after being

destroyed in 1688, Louis XIV was rebuilt in the Palatinate War of Succession

between 1689 and 1692 and the oriels renewed. A passageway was built into the

corner of the house "Zum grünen Baum" in 1950. It offered pedestrians

a way out when the tram that existed between 1899 and 1967 turned around the

corner. The house "Zum heiligen Petrus" housed a pharmacy from 1730

to the 2000s. The house with the plants and putti on the oriel was the only one

that survived the bombing raids of the Second World War almost unscathed.

 

 

At the

fourth building, the "Hauptwache", guns, flags, muskets and horns

commemorate the Electoral Trier soldiers who performed police duties from here.

Until 1848 the main guard of the Prussian police was still in the building.
