This is a building that is easily missed, but it's very old with lots of history here. So if you're in the area, take. stroll this way and take a look.

The Alte (now the city archive) stands next to Balduin Bridge, the medieval bridge across the Mosel. The castle has its origins in a building erected around 1185 as the seat of a castellan. One of the towers is currently under maintenance.

This 12th Century building stands out from the drab modern buildings that now surround it. It is unique and picturesque next to the old Roman bridge. A lovely little courtyard garden nestles at the bottom of a flight of adjacent stairs. Didn't go in ......More

There is nothing much to report to this building, although it has nice appearance but not that impressive. If you stroll along the river bank, which is a must for Koblenz, you just come across it hence there is no extra effort needed to see...More
