The 2,000-year-old Roman city has an abundance of cultural monuments and historic buildings, narrow lanes and alleyways.

The town is the gateway to the 'Romantic Rhine' and also gives access to the outdoor charms of three low mountain ranges which converge here as well.

Koblenz houses various shops, restaurants and cosy bars in the city centre brimming with a historic atmosphere. The town's main shopping centre is Löhr Centre.
