Deutsches Eck (German Corner), Koblenz

4.4
Right where the Moselle river joins the Rhine, Deutsches Eck (German Corner) memorializes the long path to postwar German unity. You can explore the Koblenz park's site of the 13th-century settlement of Teutonic Knights. Then look for the imposing monument to Kaiser Wilhelm I. It was recreated and placed here in 1993 as a symbol of the desire for German reunification. The 37 m (121 ft) tall structure is decorated with the crests and shields of each German federal state. Pay a visit to the pleasant green space and riverside outcropping. You'll find plenty of places watch the riverboats and water traffic. Deutsches Eck (German Corner) is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Koblenz Edition.

  • Interesting historic fortress with beautiful views. The gondola rides up and down were enjoyable and provides great bird to see the boat and train shopping and tourism. It seems that the fortress was recently reopened so we hope the sites expand in the future. As of August 2018 there was only a sparse amount (
  • Liked the monument. Impressive statue atop, it's hard to explain how enormous it looks unless you go to see it yourself. The land where the 2 huge rivers merge looked just like the bow of an enormous ship to me. Well worth a look. Also spend time to visit the town with its shops, bars and restaurants.
  • Great place to hang out and admire. It is beautiful and full of history. This place is ideal in the summer because of the weather and the festivals that take place here, but be careful it can get crowded really fast. Parking nearby is kind of tricky, but there are a lot of parking areas around where you can find a spot.
  • This is a most interesting place. The history looks fascinating. However, it would be helpful if there were more information in English for those of us who aren't fluent in German. The recorded English narrative was very good, as far as it went, but we could tell there was lots more to learn.
  • Interesting place to visit, always wanted to go there, although the monument wasn't very clean inside and some people seemingly have mistaken it for a urinal! But it was an impressive monument to the 19th century creation of Germany! But my wife and I also enjoyed the location and the cable car trip across the river to the fortress above, well worth a visit and would recommend it for a Sunday drive out!
