Koblenz German corner Rhine river meets Moselle travel and home
Koblenz is referred to as the “German corner where father Rhine meets mother Moselle”.

Its 24/7 picturesque location lends itself to the ideal spot from where to explore the Moselle Valley, the castles on the River Rhine, and all the surrounding dreamy villages and vineyards.

The strategic location of the dramatic 65km stretch of the Middle Rhine Valley between Bingen, Rüdesheim und Koblenz as a transport artery and the prosperity that this engendered is reflected in its sixty small towns, the extensive terraced vineyards and the ruins of castles that once defended its trade.
