The Romanticum in Koblenz takes visitors on a multimedia Rhine cruise through the Upper Middle Rhine Valley on board a virtual boat. The interactive experience spans around 800 square metres in total.
The Upper Middle Rhine Valley has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its sheer beauty. It should come as no surprise, then, that the Romanticum exhibition in Koblenz's Forum Confluentes is dedicated to this spectacular area. Here, visitors are taken on a journey through the period of Rhine Romanticism from the end of the 18th century to the late 19th century. The 800-square-metre exhibition space is designed to look like a steamboat. No end of exciting tales are told in the various rooms along the way.
In the Lorelei Room, visitors can record the Lorelei song and then play it back on a historical gramophone. The exhibition is made up of 70 interactive stations in total. But what makes it really special is that there are 30 exhibits that allow you to save information on your admission ticket, so you can listen to your rendition of the Lorelei song again once you get home. It's no wonder that this interactive exhibition was recently nominated for the German Tourism Award. Opening times: Every day 10 am–6 pm
