Vallendar (Collective Municipality)
Tucked away on the right bank of the Rhine, not far from the historical city of Koblenz is the collective municipality of Vallendar. The community of Niederwerth has a rather special status as Germany’s only inhabited river island. The three other communities of Weitersburg, Vallendar and Urbar all sit opposite the island of Niederwerth. Vallendar has made a name for itself through the world-famous shrine at Schönstatt. People from all over the world make the pilgrimage to the shrine of the ‘Mother Thrice Admirable, Queen and Victress of Schoenstatt’.
