  • Very neat fortress they have Rotating art galleries and make great use of the space with concerts in the summer and fall. Lots of historic things to see and great views there is also a restaurant and Cafe. Plus there is a play ground on the grounds near by aswell as an observation deck to enjoy the breath taking views.
  • Very rich history. A massive structure. Magnificent overlook of the confluence of the Moselle and the Rhine. A shirt but fun funicular crosses the river. The building themselves are not elaborate or detailed like some cathedrals etc..
