Koblenzer Sommerfest (Koblenz Summer Festival) joins Rhine in Flames

A three-day supporting programme centred around the final Rhine in Flames fireworks display in Koblenz. Throughout the day, over 400 artists perform on more than eight stages and play areas. The festival’s three days see Koblenz groups and bands from around the world invite the 150,000 visitors to dance and relax. Long gone are the days when the energetic world music concerts, the living room stage and the headphone (silent) disco in the cosy castle garden were an insider tip. Complemented by high-quality cultural events for children at the water playground as well as an ecumenical service and productions by clubs from Koblenz, the Koblenzer Sommerfest is a celebration for all generations. The big closing fireworks display for Rhine in Flames on Saturday evening is the highlight of the Koblenzer Sommerfest. High-quality gastronomic specialities ensure that you will be well fed on all three days. And don’t forget that while all this is happening, the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress is also hosting the Festungsmusikfest, a live music festival with cover and tribute bands.
