An amazing facade to a beautiful basilica church. The rich history of the site dates back almost two millenia and it's easy to see why this was designated very early on as a sacred spot. On the confluents of two of Germanys most iconic rivers,...More

My husband and I were visiting Koblenz while on the Rhine River Cruise. We were fortunate to have an English-speaking local guide who provided us with the history of the Basilica. It is truly a magnificent church worthwhile visiting and photographing. A "must see" while...More

This lovely old church, very near where we were moored adjacent to Deuches eck, is a place to visit when in Koblenz. This is the oldest church in the town. Do not pass it by.

Just next to the Deuches eck. Not overly ornate but quite nice. Its in an area that has different things to see and so its well worth adding to the list when you are in the area. The little tourist train goes from outside it.
