  The Equestrian Statue of Kaiser Wilhelm I, Koblenz
by Paul2001

I spent so much time traveling up and down the Rhine and Mosel valleys that I somewhat neglected Koblenz, the city that I used as my base for these excursions. There are is actually a fair bit to see in Koblenz. It can easily keep you busy for a day or two.
Unfortunately much of what you see in Koblenz is recreated as the city was largely destroyed by the bombings of World War II. One of these recreated objects is this statue of Kaiser Wilhelm I, located in the Deutsches Eck. This city park is situated where the Mosel and the Rhine rivers meet and is a good place to collect your thoughts and to gaze at this interesting statue. The statue was originally created in 1897 and was the largest equestian statue in the world. It like the rest of Koblenz was blown up during World War II. What you see today was recreated in 1993.
