The fact that the French Revolution and its effects abruptly stopped the building activities if Koblenz castle left it behind as unfinished work. In fact it's a shell of building without the decoration we usually expect from 18th century castles. What's left is a classic and majestic beauty with white walls, a pure and beautiful place.

Classical building will always be a favourite, and only thing better is Empire furniture !~

@Phil Morris: Unfortunately it wasn't possible to enter the building (just to go through its entrance hall). I think most of the old splendor is lost forever.

@Mariana Maoduš: Thanks, Mariana, I appreciate this a lot!

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

An excellent angle from which to capture this shot! It really makes the portico and columns stand out from the rest of the building. It's a detail that gets lost when looking at the building "straight on".

@Steven: It's really large! Not bad for a city that never was a 'real' capital.

It is as beautiful as it can be and I favour this classic beauty to what might have been in the 18th cent. You chose an excellent angle!
