This lovely old church, very near where we were moored adjacent to Deuches eck, is a place to visit when in Koblenz. This is the oldest church in the town. Do not pass it by.

Just next to the Deuches eck. Not overly ornate but quite nice. Its in an area that has different things to see and so its well worth adding to the list when you are in the area. The little tourist train goes from outside it.

One gets the feeling of prayerful once entering this Basilica. It is the oldest church in Kolblenz with extenstive Romanesque Construction and largely traditional furnishing. Beautiful indeed.

We were treated to a concert by the local youth choir and this was followed by an organ recital. It has an excellent organ. The church has a beautiful ceiling in the German Gothic style.
