    The square called Goerresplatz

    This square is named after a once famous poet named Josef Goerres, who came from Koblenz. This square is GREAT at night, as there are some GREAT cafes here--this is where people come at night. in the iddle of the square is an incredibly beautiful fountain, that is incredibly detailed. The fountain tells the entire history of Koblenz--from the Romans at the bottom of the fountain, through the take over by Louis XIV, napolean, the destruction of WWII, until you reach the top of the fountain showing the final reconstruction of the city as you see it today. Don't miss it!

    pictured is a close up of the base of this unique column. these are romans rowing down the rhine or mosel river. the gorresplatz has a number of nice cafes, restaurants, and shops.
