Alas, 2000 years of history doesn't make for a beautiful city as Koblenz suffered great destruction in WW2. The Deutsches Eck is the best place in town. It has three components:
The confluence of two rivers. Nice and tranquil, yes. Super special, no not really (being Dutch I am quite accustomed to seeing water masses merge). If this is your thing, forget Koblenz and go to Passau to see the convergence of the Inn and Danube.
There is a castle on a hill. Which makes a nice view. Where it not that I had been looking at castles on hills for several days already (the area is positively riddled with them).
Which leaves a gigantic statue of emperor Wilhelm I.
All in all, it just didn't do much for me. The area around Koblenz is much nicer than anything in Koblenz itself.

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.

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!!

Koblenz was a Roman Military Post in 8 BC under Emperor Darusus because of it's strategic position on the confluence of the Rhine and Mosel rivers. Today that area is called the German (Eck) Corner. This area today is the site of a large memorial to Kaiser Wilhelm I with a prominent statue of the Kaiser on horseback and the flags of all the various German districts. It is often the start of Old Town tours.

There are many historic areas to visit in Old Town Koblenz. The 17th century Liebfrauenkirche is situated in the heart of Old Koblenz and is free to visit, as is the Basilica of Saint Castor (817 BC), the oldest church in the city. The Spangelbrunnen, Spangel fountain) commemorates the 20 year allegiance Koblenz had with France (1794-1813). Gorresplatz is another highly trafficked tourist destination. In the plaza
look for a statue which depicts the history of Koblenz to the present. There are explanation boards you can read which describe the meaning of the various features on the statue. Other interesting areas include Munzplatz money place), a public square which features half-timber buildings and fackwerk facing. Two other tourist areas are Jesuitenplatz and the hilltop Schloss Stolzenfels.

While visiting Old town Koblenz you will pass by many beirgartens, and restaurants. I enjoyed my meal at Blumenhof.

It is an interesting fact to see where two rivers meet since it is not normally something you see along a river, however it is just two bodies of water. The monument at Deutsches Eck is beautiful to view. I really liked the large “rope ties for ships” (well that’s what I call them). They are huge. Walking to Deutsches Eck, through Koblenz, is a pretty walk.
Unfortunately, the cable car was not working when we were in the area.

...a great view of everything from there. Small and big castles, the rivers margin, the gigantic statue...definitely worth a walk.

Where mother Mosel and Father Rhine converge. This has been a significant place since the Romans came here in 8 A.D. today it is Deutsches Eck, the German Corner. There is a great statue of Kaiser Wilhelm The first stop his horse here. It is very imposing and I did numerous photo shoots there when I was a kid (I was raised in Koblenz).

If you have a chance to go, I recommend two things: lunch or dine at Blumenhof, one of Koblenz's finest restaurants) and take the cable car to the Festung, it's really worth it.

A nice place, however not particularly spectacular, but the meeting point of Mosel and Rhine has certainly a special meaning for people who live in the north-east of France !
