All I would say, the only thing that would take me to Koblenz was the German Corner. It was quite quiet at this time of the year and you don't feel it's cold even strolling for more than 20 minutes along the river banks seeping Gluhwein. The stature is immense and very impressive. Occasional street artists along the banks add... More

We were on a coach trip for the Christmas markets and one of our trips out was Koblenz, there we saw this immense statue set on a monument, the person concerned was William the 1st, riding a horse. The "ECK" is German for corner, as it is the headland where the Rhine meets the Moselle. On the monument are the... More

I have been here twice now. Once in the August of 2013 on a nice sunny afternoon half way through a 350 mile circular cycle tour with other visitors, the biergarden open, people sitting on the steps in front of the statue, the castle visible across the Rhine and flags flying etc and again last week on a December late...

Imposing, immense…what words to describe it. Like many of the European landmarks, one has to be there in person to really appreciate the grandeur. Cruising with Viking River Cruises, our ship docked within walking distance of the monument. The ship’s arrival in Koblenz was near dinner time, and the evening agenda did not mention anything about a tour of the... More

Well, I'm not sure if sculpture is the proper word to describe this colossal statue/monument. The German Corner was to symbolize that one day, Germany would again be unified. At the confluence of the Moselle and Rhine Rivers, this is a must see if you are in the area. If you have a chance, ride the gondola, The Rheinseilbahn, over... More

This area, translating as 'German Corner', is at the confluence of the rivers Rhine and Moselle close to Koblenz. There are quite spectacular views to be had in several directions, and watching the movements of the many river vessels can be quite fascinating. Presiding high over the picturesque scenes with imposing dominance is the immense figure of Kaiser Wilhelm 1... More

We were taken to German Corner by locals who thought we should see it. They were right: we should. One cannot help but be impressed by the sheer scale of such a monument regardless of whether one supports such nationalistic monuments or not. It is huge, and the sculpture is amazing. It is especially highlighted early in the morning and... More
