Ehrenbreitstein fortress and festival “Rhine in Flames”

It is surprising but already a thousand years B.C. there were fortifications of pre-historical people in the place of the Ehrenbreitstein fortress! This location on a high hill was also selected by the Romans. Not one century has passed since then, until in the 12th century a fortress appeared here. Afterwards it was constantly being fortified and supplemented by additional facilities and forts.

Today you can ascend the fortress hill in a cable car enjoying delightful views of the town and rivers Mosel and Rhine. A local history museum and a restaurant work inside the fortress. During the festival “Rhine in Flames” fireworks are launched from the fortress walls.
