    At the Deutsches Eck, the Moselle flows into the Rhine. In 1897 an artificial headland was built here on which a monumental equestrian statue of Emperor Wilhelm I was erected. This monument was not only to commemorate the emperor, but also to his participation in the German founding of the Reich - hence the name "Deutsches Eck". In fact, the Mosel estuary but also earlier referred to as Deutsches Eck: built in the late Middle Ages, the German Order near the mouth of the Deutschherrenhaus as administrative headquarters. At that time the mouth was called "Deutscher Ordt", but soon it became "Deutsches Eck".

    The goal of the Moselradweg has been reached.
    Here the Mosel flows into the Rhine.
    The headland (also called German Eck) is artificially piled up.
     On which stands the Kaiser Wilhelm monument.
    From there you also have a beautiful view of Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, which can be reached by a cable car.

    A great view of the river and the monument. At the back of the monument you will find an ice cream cafe and another locality. There's coffee etc at humane prices. There are also public toilets here. (50 cent)

    Very nice location, a bit crowded but still very nice. Here the Moselle flows into the Rhine, plenty of boat traffic and the possibility to take the cable car up to the fortress Ehrenbreitstein.

    My favorite tours lead me again and again to the German Corner, no matter if I cycle in the Westerwald, Eifel, Taunus or Hunsrück (these are the four low mountain ranges around Koblenz). In GMEINER-Verlag my travel companion is "LIEBLINGSPLÄTZE - from Koblenz to Rhine and Mosel - (also available as an ebook) Some current tips on the environment I will soon post here .. All of you an accident-free ride and sunny greetings from the most beautiful city between two rivers, Jörg Schmitt-Kilian

    A historic and strange place, not free of nationalism but beautiful at dusk. I can not win much from Kaiser Wilhelm. Bismarck has done more. And the Hohenzollern prevented a united Germany for a long time. But even such a place is part of our history and origin.

    This is where the Moselle and Rhine flow together. The German Corner in Koblenz. With a wonderful view of the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress. An absolute MUST for everyone who visits Koblenz.
