This palace is a popular place for locals to congregate and enjoy a stroll through the gardens. The exterior of the building is very impressive and the gardens provide an idyllic visit on the Rhine. There is nearby underground paid parking, so if you are driving to the historic old town, you may want to park in that lot and enjoy a quick visit to the palace gardens before walking to the Altstadt.

As we walked along the Rhine we came to the Kurfürstliches Schloss. The gardens on the riverside of the building were beautifully laid out and well worth a walk through with spring just arriving. We didn’t enter the actual building as it looked as if it was being set up for an event.

Walk down the pedestrian mall towards it and be impressed by the size and style of the courtyard and the magnificence of the castle entrance (and the courtyard has a good kids playground). The building itself seems a little vacant though it does have a courtyard café. The real find is to walk through the building to the fabulous gardens outside, so meticulously maintained. After exploring the many twists and pathways in the garden, keep walking the same way to leave by the beautiful garden gates that open on to the walkway along the Rhein. Then it's a short and interesting walk up to Deutsches Eck, where the Rhein meets the Mosel, with parks, a museum, an impressive stature and plenty of options to eat, or take a cruise, or shop. Lovely.

The cable ride over the Rhine, the wide open spaces of the Castle. The friendly people everywhere, and a maze of tunnels to explore. Did not have enough time to visit the whole, but one needs a full day and rested legs to explore it in entirety. Do not even think of missing this if you visit Koblenz

This is an impressive looking place with many rooms but presently there is only a cafe on the ground floor. The grounds are lovely and the beautiful gardens are still maintained. Other than seeing the exterior and enjoying the grounds there is no other reason to visit. I did not see any information that it could be toured. The cafe seemed to close by 7 PM so you can get inside the gate before that time. Signs to this place and other attractions in Koblenz are excellent throughout the city.

My wife and I only walked around the outside of the facility, but it was a very beautiful building with great gardens and statues located directly on the Rhine river. If you have pretty weather, it definitely worth checking out!

Decided to walk to the Electoral Palace while walking around town. Not sure if you can actually see the palace inside, but we just walked through and went out in the gardens out back, toward the Rhine, and I took some photos. Lovely view of the fortress.

I think there's a coffee shop inside.

Elector Clemens Wenzeslaus was the first Elector who left his former residencial city Ehrenbreitstein switched Rhine riverbank: 1777 until 1786 he had the Electoral castle decorated in the French classicism style. After French Revolution the Elector had to flee in 1792, later he left Koblenz forever.
1850s – 1857s Prince Wilhelm took the Office of Prussian military Governor at this castle. He was later known as Emperor Wilhelm I, for whom at the 'Deutschen Eck ' a monument was erected. Together with wife Augusta he resided at the Electorial castle. Empress Augusta gave the landscape architect Lenné the order to shape the Rhine riverbank (nowadays the beautiful Empress Augusta-boulevards). 1944 the Elector palace was damaged up to its outer walls; 1950/51rebuilt. Now it serves the Gouvernement and is not open to public. Federal horticultural show ' 2011: the middle part of the castle will be open to the public in the context of events and congresses and will be accessible again.

Impressive Palace,on bank of the Rhine. Doesnt look as though there is any access to the building but you can walk through it to access the gardens on either side.
The grounds are just lovely, one side is huge park like grounds with tree lined entrance and the river side has manicured gardens with beautiful tulips.
Only a short walk from here along banks of Rhine to the Deutsches Eck.
A great free place to visit in Koblenz.

This was a really nice building. It had a huge courtyard in front of it and there are supposedly concerts here.
