So we had an afternoon free and to be honest, the weather was pretty shocking, cold, drizzly rain, so we decided to go for a bit of a drive.
So of to the German Corner, we went taking a drive up the River Rhine, the German corner is where the river Rhine and the river Moselle converge at the battle at the one point.
Our journey to Koblenz took us passed the river Rhine and it was filled with the most beautiful scenes of idyllic scenic villages and fairytale castle’s tucked high into the hills cliff edge. It was so surreal we would drive a little, and there was nothing around and then bam! There’s a castle right in front of you. I hung out of the window the entire drive to Koblenz, taking pictures of every hidden almost secret town or castle I could see.
Koblenz is one of Germany’s oldest and most beautiful towns filled with vineyards and forests. We stopped off to look at where the rivers collide and came across a magnificent grand monument of Kaiser Wilhelm.
As you just get over the beauty of the monument, you turn around, and then the sight hits you, an almost green stream of water battles with a darker almost black flow of water it’s quite mesmerising watching them almost battle out for space. I forgot the cold, the rain and just watched for a while; this place was lovely and completely peaceful. If you are ever able, go and seek out the almost magic of this place.
