The Ehrenbreitstein Fortress is a historic landmark located near Koblenz, Germany and the Rhine River. It was built as the backbone of the regional fortification system and is currently the second largest preserved fortress in Europe. Early fortifications at the site can be dated back to about 1000 BC. The fortress would gain significance several hundred years later as the guardian of the Holy Tunic, a robe that was worn by Jesus Christ before his death on the cross.
It again became a stronghold for keeping back any future invaders and was used as a military headquarter. It was almost destroyed following the peace treaty. However, an American general recognized the historic importance of the fortress and was never attacked.
