The town owes its name to the Romans who named the castle "castellum apud confluentes" - this means "castle at the confluence of the rivers".
A variety of cultural offers (sightseeing, museums, boat trips on Rhine and Moselle), outdoor activities (hiking, bike tours) and a certain portion of nightlife with several attractive locations in the historical city centre make Koblenz an ideal location for a number of events, such as conferences, our annual summer school at University etc. Due to a favourable geographic location (Rhine valley, surrounded by low mountain ranges of Westerwald, Eifel, and Hunsrueck), Koblenz is also known for very good weather conditions all over the year.
