As we sailed to Koblenz we saw many little towns.

As we approached Koblenz we saw the spires of the churches in Koblenz as well as a campground where we camped in 1974.

Here we can see the spires of 4 churches.

Koblenz is at the confluence of the Rhine and Mosel. At the German Corner (Deutches Eck) stands this imposing statue of Kaiser Wilhelm.

The Max and Moritz Grill, named after characters in a childhood story.

The citizens of Koblenz show a sense of humor in a number of statues in the city. Here is a policeman with a woman selling vegetables.

St. Florin's Church was built in the early 12th century. It was transferred to the Protestant military and civilian chaplaincy by King William Frederick III. St. Florin' s Church is a triple-naved Romanesque pillared basilica (founded in the 12th century) with Gothic chancel (1350) on Roman tower. The original flat timber ceiling was renewed in 1708, and the squat towers were replaced in 1900 by pointed ones. Nearby is the city's oldest dwelling house.
