Basilika St. Kastor

Hotels near Basilika St. Kastor, Koblenz, Germany .

The Basilika St. Kastor, the oldest church in Koblenz is situated directly behind the Deutsches Eck, literally, the German Corner, a headland that juts out into the mouth of the Moselle River. In front of the Basilika sits a basalt monument said to be dedicated to the Napoleonic Wars. The Church is built in the Romanesque style, plainly decorated, and is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Koblenz. There is a manual pipe organ high up on the north wall of the church, so that it is safe from flooding. In the garden there is a sundial, which, providing you know the season will, tell visitors the date and time. The Church has four towers and was built by Louis the Pious in 836 AD. In 1208, the Basilica was remodelled in the Romanesque Style, with the Gothic Font being completed in the 1400s.

Koblenz is situated on both banks of the Rhine and Moselle Rivers and has been settled since 1000 BC. There are many architecturally interesting buildings, such as the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, which is popular with visitors and which sits on a hill overlooking Koblenz.

A room here costs from 66 Euros per night. The Hotel Haus Morgan has three stars and is located on the Rhine near the Deutsches Eck. A room here costs from 72 Euros per night.
