    Where the Rhine and the Moselle flow into each other: The Deutsches Eck is the landmark of Koblenz. The land was artificially piled up in 1891. To commemorate Kaiser Wilhelm I, his grandson Kaiser Wilhelm II had a memorial erected here. The Staute showed the Emperor on his horse. In March 1945, however, it was destroyed. Federal President Theodor Heuß appointed the riderless pedestal a few years later to the memorial of German unity. In 1993, the 37 meter high monument was completed with a reconstruction of the imperial rider again.

    In the course of the Federal Horticultural Show 2011, the area around the Deutsche Eck became a beautiful promenade. Not far from the German Corner, the cable car departs for Ehrenbreitstein Fortress. Further information about the sights of the city can be found here:

    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 should not only be reminiscent of the emperor, but also of his participation in the founding of the German Reich - hence the name "Deutsches Eck". In fact, the mouth of the Moselle was also earlier referred to as Deutsches Eck: In the late Middle Ages, built the German Order near the mouth of the Deutschherrenhaus as an administrative seat. At that time the mouth was called "Deutscher Ordt", but soon it became "Deutsches Eck".

    The Deutsches Eck is an artificially heaped headland in Koblenz at the mouth of the Mosel in the Rhine. In 1897 a monumental equestrian statue of the first German Emperor Wilhelm I was erected here, which was designed as a memorial to the German Reich in 1871. The Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial commissioned by the Rhine Province was in the tradition of many memorials erected between 1888 and 1918 in German-speaking countries.

    The Deutsches Eck is probably one of the most frequently visited places in Koblenz. Tourists from all over the world can be found here. This gives the whole an international flair and there is always something going on.

    A tip for Koblenz?

    A ride on the cable car over the Rhine to Ehrenbreitenstein Fortress.

    On the way up or down you have a great view of the German Eck.

    Once at the top it pays to visit the viewing platform.
    The view in the corner is phenomenal!

    If you are already in the old town of Koblenz, then you should definitely see by. On the one side the Moselle, on the other the Rhine.

    From here you also have a beautiful view of the fortress Ehrenbreitenstein.
    The statue of Wilhelm I was renewed in 1993.

    On the pedestals of the sea walls the coats of arms blow on flags of the federal states.

    The Mosel and the Rhine meet in this historical background.
     Koblenz has a lot more to offer beyond that.
     For example, the beautiful church just a few meters behind the monument.

    The German Eck-artificially shaken headland at the mouth of the Moselle in the Rhine. Of course a highlight, but ... Koblenz has much more to offer. I would therefore invest a little more time and take a walk through the romantic streets. Start at the Münzplatz, continue towards Liebfrauenkirche. Definitely plan a little break there and eat ice cream. The ice cream parlor "E Gel o Sia" is considered the second best ice cream parlor in Germany. Now direction City Hall, am
    Schängelbrunnen past and continue to Görresplatz with the fountain with Historiensäule.Die pillar tells in three-dimensional scenes depicting the history of the city of Koblenz. Now a walk through the Rhine facilities (3.5 km long, redesigned after the Federal Garden Show 2011) and back to the Deutsches Eck with the Kaiser Wilhelm monument. For families with children - there is a water playground.
