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.

  • The place is well kept and the scenery is very impressive. You can enjoy the most of its beauty the morning sunrise or sunset in the evening.

  • Beautiful statue on the mouth of two rivers. There are lots of ice cream and beer spots nearby where you can enjoy your beer and watch the sunset. Also, its a great place to jog. Lots of joggers in the area and there are also restaurants in these long blats sitting on the dock.
  • Sin duda es una esquina muy interesante, es imponente.. está rodeada de gente... Se puede ver la división de los ríos (yo no la vi tan marcada).. pasear aquí es gratis sin embargo por la zona puedes tomar un barco para pasear por el río o subir hacia el castillo ... Es un imperdible en Koblenz.. pasear, caminar o simplemente respirar el aire de ahí es encantador
  • Lovely place.. can't see the difference in water standing so close.. but the overall area is so lovely. Must place to visit. There are ferry rides across the river and there is a ropeway also to the castle on hill but it only starts operating after 23rd March and on weekends mostly. But the place is nice..
  • Koblenz is one of the few towns I don't mind visiting in Germany... in my opinion most of the things were destroyed in the war and therefore there's not a lot to see in Germany in general. But Koblenz is one of the towns I actually enjoyed. Original, nice food, you can feel the history in it.
  • This is a wonderful place to visit. Also the fortress across the river is a must-see. For that is available a nice cable coach behind the "Deutsches Eck".
