This is the view from the top of the monument.
At the left we have the Mosel and at the right the Rhine. The two mighty rivers flow together here at "Deutsches Eck".
It's very picturesque and watching all the boats go by is quite fascinating (OK, so we were waiting for a crash :-P)
At the "Deutsches Eck" (it means "German Corner") in Koblenz is a truly enormous monument to Kaiser Wilhelm. You can climb up to it and go inside it (on several levels) for some good views out.
In the summer there are concerts here, with the band arranged up the steps of the monument, with coloured lights and water cascading down the steps. Must be quite nice.
Deutsches Eck=German Corner
Here where the meandering rivers Rhine and Moselle floew together, here at the 'German corner' renowned the world over, here lies Koblenz, one of the oldest and most beautiful towns of Germany.
A statue of the Emperor Wilhelm I, Which had been erected here in 1897, was destroyed in 1945. A copy was placed back on the pedestal on 2nd September 1993 and since then has attracted visitors from all over the world.
They have a festival once a year and we just got into Koblenz at that day without having heard about it before. (Somwhen in the beginning of august) There´s pretty much going on in town and it´s just all a big party. Not even the busses run on time or at all.
You just have a fun time and they have an open air party or concert at the 'Deutsches Eck'. Around midnight they have a firework which we saw standing at the castle. Amazing!
Go and see the castle looming over the city, it's pretty cool. There are also vineyards on all the hillsides that you may be able to take a tour of, I know of two. The best (from what I've heard) is located behind the train station.
Take a boat from 'Deutsche Eck'. There are boattrips on the river Moselle and on the river Rhine, you can enjoy the river and the many castles. When you go to Braubach you can visit the 'Marksburg', which never had been destroyed. Take a tour through the casle with the old furnished rooms.
I dont remember what this monoment represents all I know is that it is huge. You can actually go inside and them out on the top for a terrific view over both of the rivers where they meet.
This is the monument they have at the Deutsches Eck ("German corner"). You can walk up to the horses feet to get a nice view of the two rivers.
Two of the biggest German rivers, the Rhine and the Mosel, meet here. It's quite a nice place, many boats pass by and it's prefect for watching tourists ;-)
Where the Mosel and the Rhein decide to go on together ... nice spot for skating, walking, watching, meeting some other tourists ...
