Koblenz Gate, Bonn

Koblenz Gate, Bonn

The Koblenz Gate, or the Koblenzer Tor is an archway that stands over the road leading to the city of Koblenz. It was erected between 1751 and 1757 and was initially intended to be the seat of the Order of Saint Michael. The architect who worked on the Baroque design of the structure is François de Cuvillies dem Alteren. Unfortunately, the gate experienced major damage during the war, but was succesfully renovated later, the splendid statues on top of the archway having been replaced by reconstructions. The most impressive one is the gold plated statue of archangel Michael killing the dragon. Nowadays Koblenz Gate houses the administrative offices of Bonn University.
