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.

In the summer, or when the weather be sure to recommend. Lots of restaurants including some beer in the open. There are also excursions by boat: small tours in and around Koblenz and rides through the beautiful Middle Rhine Valley. A ferry or the cable car brings visitors to the opposite remote fortress Ehrenbreitstein.
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.
