Deutsches Eck in Koblenz, Germany
This week’s travel photo was captured at Deutsches Eck in the city of Koblenz, the point where the Mosel River flows into the iconic Rhine River.
Deutsches Eck (which means “German Corner”) is the headland where the two rivers meet and is home to this towering monument that honours the German Emperor William I. Along with the mighty Festung Ehrenbreitstein (Ehrenbreitstein Fortress) located across the river, Deutsches Eck is the most popular tourist attraction in Koblenz. Here’s another photo that gives a different perspective of the massive statue.
Koblenz rarely tops Germany’s “must visit” list but we think it’s worth checking out, especially if you take our advice and visit the nearby Mosel Valley (Read – Why You Should Visit the Mosel Valley in Germany).
