Prussian government building
Konrad-Adenauer-Ufer 12, 56068 Koblenz
Emperor Wilhelm II made changes to the plan of the towers and roofs himself in order to tie in with the Staufer period. The result was a 158-metre-long complex built in the Wilhelminian neo-Romanesque style around two inner courtyards with side wings, which still decisively shapes the image of the Rhine front today. The four-storey main front on the bank with its massive, gable-crowned central pavilion looks like a fort due to the large corner towers and the tuff stone cladding of the façades. Inside are monumental staircases with vaulted halls and outstanding stonework. Today, the former Prussian government building houses the Presidium of the Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support (BAAINBw). The southern part has housed the Koblenz Higher Regional Court since 1993.
