Rhein-Museum Koblenz

This museum is on the East bank of the Rhine at Koblenz and is approached from Koblenz by way of the spectacular Pfaffendorfer Bridge. 


It is one of the best set out museums which we have visited either in the UK or Germany.  The staff are endlessly helpful.  If you don't read German the desk will provide you with "crib" sheets in English.  It is permitted to take non-commercial photographs but courteous to ask first.  The history of Rhine traffic is set out in separate rooms and the models used are of superb quality.  They include the astonishing rope laying steam tug shown here, models of the vast  Rhine timber rafts -  and a wide variety of Rhine craft from early times to date.
