Discover the new interactive exhibition experience, bringing to life every fascinating aspect of the romantic Middle Rhine Valley over an area of 800 m². Take part in a fantastic journey through time as a steamship passenger and experience the pure romance of the Rhine up close while getting to know the river and its fascinating legends and myths. 

The interactive exhibition is housed in a new building that is a work of art in itself. The “Forum Confluentes” culture centre, designed by German-Dutch star architects Benthem-Crouwel, is considered to be an architectural masterpiece. As well as the “Romanticum” exhibition, the building will also be home to the new Middle Rhine Museum, the Koblenz municipal library and the central office of the Koblenz Tourist Board in the future.

Forum Confluentes Koblenz

An impressive highlight in the centre of the city – the new Forum Confluentes brings together art, culture and education under one roof and invites you to rediscover Koblenz. That’s because this architecturally exciting building is more than just a home for the Middle Rhine Museum, Romanticum and the municipal library – visitors can also enjoy the magnificent views out over the city to the Rhine and the Moselle from the large roof terrace. The forum also contains an attractive cultural café and tourist information centre with a gift shop, wine lounge and a large ticket office as well as the municipal theatre booking office.
The new Forum Confluentes is coming soon – from 1 July, 2013.

You can also easily reach Koblenz city centre by train. Long-distance travellers can walk to the city from Koblenz central railway station in around 10 minutes.
