It is an interesting monument in a beautiful plaza. As you can see in vakantiejozef comment, the meaning of the column is really interesting.
Unfortunately I visited it on a Sunday during December, so there was no water running and most commerce was closed.

Thank HpMatias

A gift of Rhineland-Palatinate to the city of Koblenz, on the occasion ofits 2000th birthday. Depicts the major events during 2000 year history of Koblenz: the Roman Kastell settlement starts at the lowest level with sturdy fishermen rowing their boat at "Father Rhine". Water spray from their oars and around the sides of the boat. Level 2 (Krongut und Konferenzort:) Romans establish a city named "Confluentes" and a church. Image 3 (Vom Reich an Kurtrier): activities in periods of relative peace and tranquility. Image 4 (Kreuzzüge / Sklavenhandel): Crusaders and the slave trade, a period of grief for the community, the city in flames. Image 5 (Blühende städtische Gemeinde): figurines on hors reback represent the thriving city of artisans, merchants and Church dignitaries from 13 to 16th century. Image 6 (30-jähriger Krieg / Hexenwahn): City-silhouette at the time of the thirty years war and witch persecution. Image 7 (Französische Revolution): bellicose events during and after the French Revolution and occupation around 1800. Image 8 (Prussian Epoch): depicting the mighty fortress and Prussian Koblenz in the 19th and 20th century, the horse-drawn vehicles symbolize the arrival of Prussian troops. Image 9 (Zerstörung 1944): the city on fire and destroyed a Koblenz after bombing 1944 during WW II. At the highest level the current city with people who graciously live in harmony and peace. The whole meaning of the fountain is that 2000 years urban history existed in peace and conflicts, but that finally after chaos a better place is created.
