Must see · Landmark · Tourist Spot
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 Edition.

  • Nice place to have a rest. There is a beer garden and a nice water playground. But the best is the cable road - really stunning view on Rhine and Mosel from above
