Deutsches Eck (“German Corner”)

On the edge of the Old Town of Coblenz lies the Deutsche Eck – an artificially created spit of land at the confluence triangle of the Rhine and the Mosel. The Deutsche Eck is the landmark of the city of Coblenz. It attracts around 2 million visitors each year to enjoy the wonderful view over the Rhine and the fortress of Ehrenbreitstein.

The Deutsche Eck owes its name to a German order of knights which was given a part of the land by Archbishop Theoderich von Wied in the year 1216. After the establishment of the Teutonic Order, the headland was renamed Deutscher Ordt (from Orden=order), and later Deutsches Eck. Since 2002, it has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage Upper Middle Rhine Valley.
