12th century

The Old Castle (Alte Burg) is a former electoral water castle located in Koblenz's old town on the banks of the Moselle near the Baldwin Bridge. Only the Burghaus ("castle house") has survived; today it houses the city archives.
The castle was partly built on the ruins of the Late Roman city wall dating to the 4th century. It was originally surrounded by a broad, water-filled moat and an enceinte.
