Accessible Walks With Wheelchairs in BarrierFree Koblenz.
Koblenz is one of the oldest cities in Germany. It is where the Rhine and Moselle converge. But to be honest our stay was short if we had blinked we might have missed it. Luckily we didn’t blink.
Our guide was Johannes – perfect for the job because he was entertaining as well as knowledgeable.
He took us first to the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress which sits on rocks that overlook the city. You can get there by cable car across the Rhine. It affords magnificent views across Koblenz and is a truly magnificent place. You could easily spend several hours looking at the exhibitions and wandering the gardens.
Make sure you check out the view down to Deutsches Eck statue of Emperor William 1 sat proudly on his horse. Stunning.
For lunch we stopped at the Weindorf. Accessible entrance from the back and there are accessible toilet facilities too.
Much thought and planning has been given to making the city of Koblenz Barrierfree. Special attention has been paid to path surfaces which really help make the city accessible. It is a very easy place to get around and full of character and charm.
A little tip if you are looking for somewhere to park. Parkhause Schloss 9underground parking) Neustadt 56068 is very accessible.
Deb’s verdict: My regret is that we only spent a few hours in Koblenz. But what we saw we loved. In the words of a famous Austrian ‘I’ll be back.’
