Rhineland-Palatinate is a stage for European culture and has much to offer that the General Directorate for Cultural Heritage will be happy to show you!
Discover the excellent state museums in Koblenz, Mainz and Trier and the numerous castles, palaces and ancient treasures of the region.
Start your adventure and visit ancient Roman buildings like the Porta Nigra, the amphitheatre or the Forum Baths in Trier, castles on the Middle Rhine such as Pfalzgrafenstein or Stolzenfels Castle, and the important Trifels and Hardenburg castles in the Palatinate. Not forgetting the Prussian Ehrenbreitstein Fortress in Koblenz, one of the largest fortress complexes in Europe and venue for an extensive programme of cultural events! Fascinating guided tours, multimedia presentations and varied temporary exhibitions make a visit to these historic sites a real one-off experience.
Rhineland-Palatinate has an impressive four UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Speyer cathedral; the Roman monuments, the cathedral and the Liebfrauenkirche in Trier; the Upper Middle Rhine Valley cultural landscape; and the Upper Germanic-Rhaetian Limes.
Ehrenbreitstein Fortress on a rocky outcrop high above the confluence of the Rhine and the Moselle has an almost magical attraction. Visitors can expect a lively cultural centre with four exhibition spaces, lots of excellent food and breathtaking panoramic views over the Rhine and the Moselle.
The complex, which was built by the Prussians, was once one of the largest fortresses in Europe. The impressive complex is still surrounded by its metre-thick walls, ditches, tunnels, bridges and gates.
