In its heyday, the Deutsche Reichsbahn maintained three locomotive depots around the city and Between 1899 and 1967, the city had an electric tram, supplemented by a trolleybus service from 1941 to 1970. Furthermore, between 1928 and 1959, a funicular ran to the Rittersturz, a popular vantage point. Koblenz is also known as the city of bridges, with three large railway bridges over the Rhine and Moselle alone, not to mention their function as waterways.
