Rhine in Flames
August 14 @ 9:30 - 23:30
Every single year, this unique spectacle delights around 250.000 visitors on the banks of the Rhine and around 20.000 guests on the brightly decorated boats. “Rhein in Flammen®” (Rhine in Flames) is the largest and oldest firework show in Germany and enjoys over 200 years of tradition in Koblenz. In 1756, fireworks were set off in Koblenz in honor of the electoral prince Johann-Philipp von Walderdorff. In addition to the unique fireworks show, the main attraction and the trademark of “Rhein in Flammen” is without a doubt Europe?s largest boat parade. Around 75 boats glide through the river currents passing romantic Rhine locations, castles and mansions which are illuminated with Bengal lights. Eight firework programs accompany the journey on the 17 kilometers between Spay and Koblenz, which finishes with a wonderful final firework display over the “Festung Ehrenbreitstein” (Ehrenbreitstein Fortress) in Koblenz.
