Koblenz, Germany

The Deutsches Eck, Koblenz's famous landmark, at blue hour. Taken from Festung Ehrenbreitstein.

 

Koblenz, which means "Confluence", is so named because it lies in the riverbanks of the Rhine where it converges with the Moselle river. The Deutsches Eck, meaning German Corner is the triangular headland that contains the monument of Emperor Wilhelm I. It is at that point where the two rivers meet. The monument was erected 9 years after the emperor's death to celebrate the man who fought for the German union in several wars.
