The Upper Middle Rhine UNESCO World Heritage Site

This paradise is exactly 65 kilometres long - enjoy it. Since June 2002 it has been official. The Rhine valley between Rüdesheim and Koblenz has been nominated by UNESCO as a World Heritage of mankind deserving protection. This is a great honour, but also a challenge for all who live here and accepted this inheritance with joy. The team from Hotel Im Schulhaus also wishes to show itself to be an exemplary community of heirs.

Castle dreams and dream castles

Whether a knight's or a king's castle - in the World Heritage Valley they are densely packed together. The best view can be obtained from the water. For example on the deck of a Rhine vessel. The white fleet glides majestically along the water. Defiant castles and romantic palaces salute you from steep cliffs. Many castles and palaces are open to visitors. Only a few are privately owned. Some only have the farm left. It's always worth trying out the old trade route, climbing up and enjoying the view.

The Koblenz cable car - a special experience!

The Koblenz cable car is an aerial cable car that hovers over the Rhine in Koblenz. It was built as an attraction and environmentally friendly transport connection especially for the "Federal Garden Show 2011". The cable car has connected the Rhine facilities with the plateau in front of the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress since June 2010. It is Germany's first tricable ropeway and, with 18 cabins, has a conveying capacity of 7,600 people per hour, the world's highest performance.

Soar over the Rhine by cable car and conquer the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, one of the largest fortifications in Europe. Visitors can expect a lively cultural center with cultural and culinary delights. At the fortress you will be rewarded with a unique view of a city with a tradition dating back over 2000 years at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle rivers.

Getting there
From Lorch you can easily reach the attraction by boat, train or car. The valley station of the cable car is located on the banks of the Rhine in Kobelenz, behind the Kastorkirche in the immediate vicinity of the Deutsches Eck.
From the main train station (platform D) take bus number 1 to the stop "Deutsches Eck" or walk about 30 minutes on foot.
In the main season, from April to October you can drive from Lorch by excursion and liner shipping to Koblenz (journey time approx. 3 hours). The ships dock and take off near the cable car. You can find more information at www.seilbahn-koblenz.de
