A complete guide to the best area to stay in Koblenz, Germany (including hand-picked hotels in Koblenz Old Town).
Koblenz is an ancient city in Rhineland, Western Germany. Situated at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle Rivers, the city has a very strategic position.
Because of its location, the city is the perfect base to explore the terraced vineyards and castles along the Rhine and Moselle. This is especially true if you’re travelling by car or train. There are 8 popular castles to discover in less than 1 hour away! For more details take a look at my guide to the best castles along the Rhine and Moselle.
I used Koblenz as a base to explore the castles on the Rhine by train. So, I needed accommodation close to the train station, but at the same time not far from the Old Town.
If you’re visiting Koblenz for exploring the nearby castles, stay in the area between the Old Town and the Central train station. You’ll be at a walking distance to everywhere, including tourist sights and restaurants.
