Quote: Visiting Koblenz was like having a delicious appetizer and a glass of fine wine, but no main meal. I dined well here, and I thoroughly enjoyed my visit, but the time here was entirely too short. I long to return to explore this eclectic city and really discover its treasures.

In Koblenz, you get the best of both worlds: the scenic beauty of the Rhine, as well as the Moselle. Come to Koblenz to: *Stroll along Koblenz’s expansive promenade and share the German’s enthusiastic love for nature and the outdoors as you enjoy this incredibly green city *Laugh at Koblenz’s whimsical statues scattered throughout the city. *Soak up some 2,000 years of history and learn about the influence of such people as the Romans and the powerful archbishops. *Shop at quaint boutiques, as well as local outdoor markets *Just sit and relax at the Jesuitenplatz and enjoy a copy of coffee or a frosty mug of German beer as you sit in the shadow of old burgh...Read More

Location, location, location. It’s the most important thing in real estate, but it’s also a critical factor when selecting lodging accommodations as well. If you want to make the best use of your time, select a place where it’s easy to get to the major sights of a city. In Koblenz, the Hotel Mercure, at Julius-Wegeler-Strasse 6, makes it incredibly easy to get to the Rhine River, where you’ll be able to enjoy walking along the promenade and enjoy the city’s natural beauty as well. Business travelers will appreciate the fact that the Mercure has direct access to the Rhine-Moselle-Conference-Center. It’s also a very easy walk to get to the Wine Village (Weindorf) (see separate journal entry.)...Read More

It’s always more fun to visit a destination if you know a little about its history, and then pick up some additional facts along the way. In Koblenz, you can learn about its fascinating history as you look at a piece of artwork. The History Column, a gigantic sculpture, has ten different levels that take you from the time Koblenz was a Roman settlement (with Romans rowing a boat), on through the Crusades and Prussian period, to Heute or today. Pick up a brochure about the monument at the tourist office, and you’ll be able to follow along as your eyes move upward through history. It’s interesting that the artist, Jurgen Weber, does not represent history as always progressing but, instead, as movi...Read More

The Wine Village

Best Of IgoUgo

Story/Tip

Quote:
When I think of Germany and the Rhine River, one of the things that comes to mind is good wine — Riesling, to be more specific. And, during my recent trip along the Rhine, I found that the Wine Village (Weindorf) in Koblenz is one of the most enjoyable places to enjoy a glass of this liquid gold. The fact that the Wine Village is situated along the Rhine River’s edge is incredibly appropriate because it is a perfect setting. But, even if it weren’t, it still is a wonderful place to sip your Riesling, dine on regional specialties (how does pork steak with mushrooms a la creme, served with a fresh salad and berner rösti (potatoes) sound?), and relax in a warm, friendly atmosphere.
