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.

  • Water is much too much, the color of the two rivers, but were not well, it seems would be is a place. There was bickering than have moved to the Berlin wall, Museum or the Museum. It was a nice train ride across the river landscape.

  • A Monument of historic importance ... But a great place to relax in summer or come for. Walk. It's the same place where all the fireworks happen on New Year's Eve
  • It is an historical place, there you can see the junction of two important rivers, the Model and Rhine, as well a huge statue of William I, really worth the visit!!
  • Monument at the junction of the rhine and mossel rivers. Lovely spot.
  • I had prepared some material about it and we used it for learning some history. Quite impressive monument and views.
  • very nice place to relax with great views of the rhine and moselle. there is a nearby cable car taking you up to a fortress from where you can see the whole city.
