The German cornerThe settlement of the Teutonic Order at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle in 1216 gave this historic square its name "Deutsches Eck". Koblenz also owes its name to the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle - from time to time "Castellum apud Confluentes", Latin for "the castle at the confluence", became the current name Koblenz.Kaiser Wilhelm monumentShortly after the death of Kaiser Wilhelm I, the idea arose to commemorate the emperor who, after three wars, had brought Germany together. Three years later, in 1891, Emperor Wilhelm II, the grandson of the deceased, chose the Deutsche Eck in Koblenz as a suitable location. To make room for the monument, an emergency harbor was filled in, which at that time was at the mouth of the Moselle. The Deutsche Eck in its current form was created.
