Perfect for proposing!!
I took advantage of the Eck, and proposed this week at the corner of Mother Mosel and Father Rhein, this is a very beautiful area! Make sure you go to the top of the statue and marvel at the beauty of this area. Take a quick trip across the river and hike the back trail up to the fortress. I will always remember the view of the Ehrebritstein Fortress from our room, and the entire hsitory of this area in general.
Weather in Germany can be from cold to sunny or rainy. You never know. We have a lot of rain. So do not forget your pullover and raincoat. Koblenz has a nice weather, the Rhinevalley often is a bit warmer than the mountains around. You can get anything in Koblenz. There is a camping side in Koblenz.
Burg Maus in St. Goarshausen - 25km from Koblenz
Burg Maus in St.Goarshausen - in a distance of 25km upstream from Koblenz - is an interesting place to visit for all tourists, beeing interested in birds: this castle is open for visitors, BUT only in order to see performances of eagles and falcons flying high above the Rhine-valley and returning back to their home again afterwards. You may not drive up to the castle, BUT instead you have to leave your car in a side-valley of the Rhine and take a walk of about 20 minutes uphill to the castle Maus. At the castle they have a small restaurant and cafe !

And this was really a good...
And this was really a good spot after an awful afternoon driving under the beating sun ... 'Osteria 900' ... this is something we went for to make our white wines not so lonely on the table ... It was really delicious but I completely forgot what it is :-(
Siegfried's Mechanical Instrument Museum
Visit the Siegfried's Mechanical Instrument Museum.
It sounds strange but this place is great! It's actually in a town called Rudesheim not too far from Koblenz.
The instruments are amazing! You can only visit by guided tour but it is well worth it.
If you are interested in music or anything mechanical then you will love this place. I'm not into either of those things particularly and I still really loved it there.
