Pegelhaus | Koblenz

The Pegelhaus in the Koblenz Rhine complex, now

used as a restaurant, was originally built as a Rhine crane. The building dates

from the 17th century. Elector Lothar von Metternich had the octagonal building

with its profiled base built from 1609 to 1611 as a Rhine crane with the

collaboration of Johann Pasqualini, master builder of the Jülich fortress. The

building was used in this function until 1839. After the crane mechanics had

been removed, it was used primarily as a gauging station for various business

purposes. To the right of the entrance to today's café and restaurant with

glazed roof, the flood marks from the various centuries can be seen.


On the left side there is a blue gauge clock. The

water level measured at the water gauge house is one of 22 water gauges

relevant for Rhine navigation measured along the Rhine.
