Koblenz

Koblenz is a small town located between the beautiful River Rhine and The Moselle . It is one of Germany’s oldest most historic towns with lots of things to see and do! We got ill eating too much ice cream from the best ice cream parlours in town, we hiked up to fairytale castles, and explored the small scenic towns surrounding the upper-middle Rhine area.
