Stopped here while on a river cruise. The statue itself is breathtaking. It was replaced in the 90's after being destroyed by an Allied tank at the end of WW II. The layers of history include the statue of kaiser Wilhelm, three pieces of the Berlin Wall, Flags of all the German States, The European Union flag plus a U.S.... More

Took a nice quiet walk along the Rhine and arrived at the Deutches Eck. Cool monument with a nice view. Stop and take a look if you are in Koblenz.

Took some good photos of the two rivers, and the grand statue of Kaiser Bill. A good area to unwind on a day's sightseeing. Nearby kiosks, and beers and snacks just past the cable car ticket office.

Located between the rivers Rhine and Mosel, Deutsches Eck is a great place to enjoy the panorama of the Rhine valley with its castles. The beergarden next to it welcomes you to traditional German food and local beer. Check the event calendar for concerts on this beautiful tourist attraction.

The statue is a bit hard to see or take pictures of during mid day in sunny weather. Suggest going there in early morning or late afternoon.

A trip to Koblenz is not complete without a visit to Deutsches Eck or "German Corner" where the Moselle meets the Rhein. It is truly a symbol of unification in all senses. It is a lovely town with great walks along the river - fabulous on a nice day, we certainly enjoyed it.

This monument where bombed during WW:II, this is nothing you can se now. It is a symbol for a united Germany and for freedom. It's a nice walk around the monument with Mosel on one side and Rhen on the other.

Right across the river and close to the cable car this one has a good finish. I somehow liked the horse statue, it looked grand to me.

This is am iconic location. The DE or German corner sits at the junction of the Rhine and Moselle river and you get spectacular views along the river and to the fort on the other side of the banks. The Statue is imposing and has touches of Ozymandis about it - huge and towering and commanding views across the river.... More
