Views from the castle
Artillery was added to the sides of the castle facing the Rhine in the 15th century.
We enter the buildings through the kitchen, proceeding through sleeping quarters to the dining hall.
Weapons and armor
From the castle, we return to Koblenz, where the ship is docked at a tree-filled park, and wander through the city. Koblenz is located at the confluence of the Moselle and the Rhine Rivers and was originally a Roman military post established around 8 BC. The joining of the two rivers is now known as the "German Corner" and is a symbol of the unification of Germany.
