Koblenz : Michelin's recommendations
Koblenz initially flourished because of its advantageous position at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle. After the French Revolution, it took in a number of refugees. In 1794, Republican troops occupied the left bank of the Rhine, and in 1798 the city became the préfecture of the Rhine-and-Moselle département. Today, the city offers numerous leisure activities: river excursions, its animated summer festival, the taverns in its «Wine Village» and walks in the pretty old town.
