After visiting the German Corner and finding the cable car depot, I stumbled across this basilica next to the Ludwig Museum. It has fairly unique two-tower architecture with a very appealing and colorful interior.

Considering the fact that the original church’s construction on this site began in the year 817, there is too long of a history to summarize here. The facade of the basilica on the west end is not ornate as many European churches are, but is...More

Very well preserved in despite of having been through different wars. Still have small parts of the original structure built in 836.

An amazing facade to a beautiful basilica church. The rich history of the site dates back almost two millenia and it's easy to see why this was designated very early on as a sacred spot. On the confluents of two of Germanys most iconic rivers,...More

My husband and I were visiting Koblenz while on the Rhine River Cruise. We were fortunate to have an English-speaking local guide who provided us with the history of the Basilica. It is truly a magnificent church worthwhile visiting and photographing. A "must see" while...More

They were making some renovations when I was there, so you can ask the concierge of your hotel or if you have time,while you visit downtown, ask and if they have mass usually they are at 12:oo noon and 18:00 hrs.
