15+ Memorable Things to do in Koblenz, Germany

Anyone that knows me knows I'm having some serious wanderlust lately so today I'd like to talk about the best things to do in Koblenz, Germany if you want some truly unique experiences. With everything from museums, churches, cathedrals, and tours, be sure to cross at least a couple of these activities off your Germany travel list!

I’m sure you’ve heard by now, but in case this is your first time on StephanieCristi, I’ll let you know that this post is part of a series inspired by my parents upcoming Rhine river cruise.
I’m feeling a little jelly so I’ll be taking this opportunity to live vicariously through them, their stories, and their photos. Today I’ll be sharing a monster list of things to do in Koblenz, since that’s the fourth stop on their trip.

Their cruise actually stops at quite a few places on my ultimate world travel bucket list! So, even though I won’t be joining them on this trip, I’ll be sharing tons of blog posts with attractions and activities for each of their stops.
