The Deutsches Eck of Koblenz.
A promontory overlooking the Moselle and the Rhine, in the city of Koblenz, the Deutsches Eck takes its name from the settlement of the Teutonic Knights at this point of confluence in 1216. A monument erected to the memory of Emperor Wilhelm I, paying homage to his work towards the unification of Germany, was unveiled in 1897, destroyed in 1945, replaced by a memorial to German Unity in 1953, and finally reconstructed in 1993. Standing 37 metres tall, this monument attracts over 2 million visitors each year, and became a UNESCO World Culture Heritage Site of the Upper Middle Rhine Valley in 2002.
