Rheinsteig Stage 9: Vallendar - Koblenz-Ehrenstein (North - South)


This stage of the trail brings us close to the Rhine once again and deep into German history. Koblenz's location on the Rhine and Moselle have always made it valuable and interesting in terms of military strategy. Therefore, Koblenz was, and still is, a garrison town. The Deutsche Eck (lit. German Corner) headland, the historical old town centre and Ehrenbreitstein Fortress on the right bank of the Rhine should not be missed during your visit to Koblenz. The village of Ehrenbreitstein enjoyed the protection of the fortress, but also suffered during its sieges.
