Exhibition features
Experience and adventure

Your virtual journey through the Middle Rhine Valley begins here

Participate and touch instead of looking and keeping your distance

Get on board the virtual ship and step into  an adventure. The Romanticum Koblenz experience exhibition is much more than just a museum. History and knowledge become an unforgettable experience. A trip to the exhibition in the heart of Koblenz is something very special, and not only on rainy days. Come along on a magical voyage of discovery and experience what gives the World Heritage Site such a unique and beautiful character.

You will discover five different areas as you move through the exhibition. Each room focuses on a different theme that characterises the region and has been given a great deal of attention to detail. Learning becomes an experience for the senses at the Romanticum. The Upper Middle Rhine World Heritage Site not only shines with unique panoramas, the soft sound of the Rhine and the wind that caresses your skin on the towers of the castles and palaces, but also with a unique taste. It is not for nothing that the wine from the region is in demand far beyond the country's borders.

A new adventure awaits you in every room. Amongst other things you suddenly become part of the exhibition yourself. How does that work? With a silhouette. The old art form of shadow silhouettes comes to life at on of our stations. Take a silhouette of yourself and have that silhouette exhibited on the wall. Sounds crazy? We promise: it's worth it.

This is how the Loreley sounds - Karaoke in the Romanticum

„Ich weiß nicht, was soll es bedeuten,
dass ich so traurig bin;
ein Märchen aus alten Zeiten,
das kommt mir nicht aus dem Sinn.“

[‟I do not know what it means
That I should feel so sad;
There is a tale from bygone days
that I cannot get out of my mind.”]

Many people know the Song of the Loreley. It has been reinterpreted and covered countless times over the past 200 years. In 1824, Heinrich Heine would probably not have expected that his poem would still be a topic in many school classes and families today. It is being sung daily at the karaoke bar on the imaginary Rhine steamer of the Romanticum. You too can demonstrate your singing talent here. Alone, in a duet or as a family band - have fun! By the way: the most popular version is the Loreley song with a melody once written by Friedrich Silcher. You can also hear the other versions at the karaoke bar.

The dream of your own castle

At the Romanticum Koblenz experience exhibition, a real childhood dream becomes real: at the castle easel you can have your castle built and designed as you wish. At the castle camera you take a snip at the castles on the Rhine Theatre. Who will win the most castles? See how it works in the video.
