    Imposing statue at the confluence of the Mosel & Rhine Rivers
    It was a cold and rainy day when we visited Koblenz and the Deutsches Eck. The German Corner is at the confluence of the Mosel and Rhine Rivers. There is a huge statue of Kaiser Wilhelm I on horseback. We loved watching the boats on the rivers from the terrace. There is a promenade you can walk to take you into the old part of Koblenz. We were there for the Christmas Markets. Koblenz had about 5-6 and they kind of flowed as you walked in the old town. We also took the gondola up to the fortress for The Christmas Garden

    Two Amazing Rivers Come Together
    As someone who lives far away from any rivers, this "corner" is an impressive sight. I enjoyed hanging out on the corner, as it were, and observing the river traffic flowing by. There are many barges and cruise ships going up and down both rivers. You get a flavor for how goods can be transported inland without trucks or trains. The Kaiser Wilhelm memorial is also quite impressive. You can climb the steps and enter the memorial underneath the large statue. I definitely recommend taking the time to do so. Pro Tip: There are no public restrooms in the area, so plan accordingly!

    Confluence
    The German Corner is the point at which the Mosel (Moselle) and Rhine rivers meet. It's an interesting spot purely because of this fact plus the fact that we were on a river cruise that sailed along both rivers. It's easy to see from ground level but even better if you take the cable car up to the monument. You get fantastic views while in the cable car and when you reach the top. There's a large viewing platform up there which also helps with getting a clear view of the city and the surrounding countryside. The German Corner itself is dominated by a massive statue of Kaiser Wilhelm. Very impressive. Nearby you will also find three small pieces from the Berlin Wall.

    A cool historic part of Koblenz.
    Seeing the statue of Kaiser Wilhelm I honoring his 1871 unification of Germany is impressive. The views from this "German Corner" of the city are nice. It is worth the time to visit this site and maybe just relax for a while.

    Perfect Views In A Sunny Day
    My wife and I had no idea what to expect during a day tip to Koblenz even though we live in Germany. Our friends who were visiting said it is a must do city. We spent the afternoon enjoyingits tourist attractions and its food. My wife and I definitely will come back. For now, Deutsches Eck, also known as the "German Corner"), is the name of a promontory, where the Mosel River joins the Rhine River. It is named after a local commander of the Teutonic Order, and it became known for a monumental equestrian statue of William I, the first German Emperor. It was destroyed in World War II. Following German reunification, a replica of the statue was erected and serves as a Koblenz landmark and a popular tourist traction.

Koblenz by itself isn't terribly attractive (it was hit hard in World War II), but its place at the historic Deutsches Eck ("German Corner") - the tip of land where the Mosel River joints the Rhine - gives it a certain patriotic charm. This spot became truly legendary.
I was truly impressed at the power of this place, and an unfathomable source of pride seized me.

For many Germans, this spot stirs their nationalistic spirit and they come here to feel good about their country while enjoying the organ grinders and buskers playing accordions in this park-like atmosphere. And in fact, this place can be named German Pride Corner. Must see it in Koblenz!!

There is something majestic about the floating rivers. We came down with Mosel and then the impressing view opened up with the fort/castle on the other side of the river and the big statue to be explored.
My oldest got all emotional and meant it was the coolest thing he ever saw. It was a foggy day so it did look cool.
We explored the big statue and stood where the two rivers met and it was really nice.

I went to Koblenz because of the Deutsche Eck. It’s one of the things you should have visited once when you live in Germany. The statue is impressive, the atmosphere is of a smaller city, touristy, but on a different level than Berlin or Munich. Take a weekend for the trip to Koblenz or plan in one day in Koblenz when you will be in Germany.

Definitely a place to see in Koblenz, it is great to see where the Rhein and Mosel come together. The Wilhelm I. statue is worthwhile seeing. Next to it, there is a nice Biergarten. To get a better view of the Eck, you could take the cable car or do one of the many boat tours (I recommend doing both anyway). We did both and had a really good view on the Eck and the surroundings. Gives you a great different sight.

Two major rivers meet here, the Rhine and the Mosel. Gorgeous open area, I imagine there are concerts and gatherings here. The huge monument of William I, first German Emperor dominates the setting. This monument was erected in 1897. The first version was destroyed in WWII, however, this exact replica was built in 1993. There were a couple random musicians, and trailer/tourist shops.

Lots of German history and big statue are two accurate descriptions from other reviewers and one has to be close up to really appreciate how huge this very Germanic statue is. A statue dedicated to the guy, Wilhelm 1, whose vision transformed Germany from a collection of principalities into the strong modern nation we know today. But its not just boastful - in the surrounding parkland there are several monuments remembering the collective folly and evils of the Nazi era and the subsequent division of the country by the Russians. And the confluence of the Rhine and Mosel is origin of the name, Confluentes, given by the Romans to this attractive city
