Rhineland Palatinate has been the setting for many chapters of European history and has many cultural highlights that the General Directorate for Cultural Heritage will be happy to show you! Start your voyage of discovery around the Rhine and Moselle and you will discover monumental Roman buildings, medieval castles, historical palaces, four UNESCO World Heritage Sites and top-notch state museums in Koblenz, Mainz and Trier.
The role of the General Directorate for Cultural Heritage Rhineland‑Palatinate (GDKE) is to secure and maintain the cultural heritage handed down to the region and preserve it for posterity, while promoting monuments as cultural and tourist attractions. This comprises both state museums and state properties, among which are ancient Roman buildings like the Porta Nigra, the amphitheatre and the Forum Baths in Trier, and castles such as Pfalzgrafenstein and Stolzenfels on the Middle Rhine, and Villa Ludwigshöhe in the Palatinate. Not to be forgotten is the Prussian Ehrenbreitstein Fortress in Koblenz, one of the largest fortress complexes in Europe! Exciting guided tours, multimedia presentations, interactive options and an extensive programme of events make a visit to these historic sites a real one-off experience.
