    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.

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.
