Where once princes and kings resided
The Electoral Palace of Koblenz is one of the most important palace buildings of French early classicism in southwest Germany and is one of the last residential palaces built in Germany immediately before the French Revolution. Today, the castle in its central part offers exclusive rooms for festive banquets, conferences and family celebrations. The freely accessible, exclusive Grand Café invites you for a visit. Towards the Rhine there is also a wonderful terrace garden which is also freely accessible.
Elector Clemens Wenzeslaus had the Electoral Palace built between 1777 and 1786. From 1850 to 1858 the Prussian Crown Prince and later Emperor Wilhelm I resided here as Prussian military governor. In 1944 the Electoral Palace was destroyed down to its outer walls, and rebuilt in 1950/51.
