This is where the two large rivers Mosel (coming from France and Luxembourg through the city of Trier), here represented by a young lady holding grapes, and Rhein, here displayed as the knight on a horse, join. It is the most central place of the ancient medieval history, close to Trier, Aachen, Nassau, Cologne, Mainz and Worms, which were the... More

Koblenz is a beautiful town in Germany! Both old and new. We visited "The German Corner' where you can view where the Rhine River and Moselle join. The statue there of Emperor William I is quite impressive!! No fees, and quite a few places nearby to eat and wander and see the beautiful waterfront. You can also see pieces of... More

With the Niederwalddenkmal, the Deutsches Eck commemorates the foundation of Germany's Second Reich. The statue of Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse is huge and impressive - exactly the response anticipated. It overlooks the confluence of the Rhein and Mosel rivers, key economic highways and a strategic defense point. The view makes it a worthwhile visit alone.

Our friend told us about the story of this place & it really attracted us so much even before we came. The William I statue was marvelous, the Mosol & Rhine rivers' intersection was beautiful, and the sceneries on the river, castle across the river on the hill top, cable car and even the big hotel/restaurant/sightseeing boat are all attractive....

An amazing impression of German unity. I didn't realize how huge the equestrian statue really was until I went here. There are emblems of all the German states situated directly behind the statue. We climbed up and took pictures next to our home states.

Visited at night and was eerie and beautiful. They had pieces of the Berlin wall on display as well as the large statue. Wish I could have spent more time in town.

There is something special about this place. Maybe the binding of two rivers, the spirit of history or views on Rhein. Description in two words Grand and Great!

This is obviously far less crowded in November than in July so it is easier to just stroll around and enjoy both the statue and also the fabulous river views.

Deutsches Eck marks the confluence of the Moselle and the Rhine and the main attraction at this spot is the UNESCO Heritage listed monument to Kaiser William I, the man on the horse. It is monumental, really quite impressive and one can climb up the numerous steps (the upper ones can be quite precarious) to get to the spot just... More

A must see if visiting Koblenz, not just for the statue but the river views, wide walkways, the large plane trees, little cafe etc. In good weather it must be a great place to sit a while. The public loos are bizarre- you gave to pay 70 centimes I think it was, and you get a voucher back for 30... More
