Koblenz (Coblenz in English, Coblence in French) is situated at the confluence of the Rhine and the
Mosel. There is a spectacular view of the city from Ehrenbreitsten Castle, well worth a visit, as is the
city itself - good shopping and plenty of places to eat.
Koblenz, Ehrenbreitstein
Old Postcard, Koblenz, Germany
This huge monument to Kaiser Wilhelm 1 was erected in 1897 at the place known as the Deutsche Eck
(literally "German Corner") where the Rhine and the Moselle meet. ("Coblenz" derives from "confluence").
The statue was destroyed by US artillery fire in WW2. For many years thereafter a German flag was flown on
the site, and in 1993 a local couple donated a copy of the monument, which stands there today.
This unused postcard shows Ehrenbreitstein Castle - not a good image I'm afraid.
Koblenz, Castorkirche
"The Church of St Castor, founded in 836, is a Romanesque building with four square towers, which stands in
a prominent position opposite the quay at the junction of the Rhine and Moselle. The church in its present
form was erected during the 12th century, consecrated in 1208 and has recently been carefully restored, It
possesses a fine Gothic groined roof. "
