This nice square is promoted to one of the better sites in Koblenz by the Historiensaeule. A nice area to wander through as part of a larger walking tour through the very worthwhile town of Koblenz.

This is a square in the center of Koblenz that is perfect for sitting, talking or just strolling. There are shops and restaurants all around it and the statue in the center is very interesting.

Noah's arch statue is lovely to see. Such a piece of art and much larger than I expected it to be. Nice Christmas market booths along the streets. Fun visit.

The Gorresplatz is a very pleasant open space in the Koblenz's Alstadt. The central fountain holds the "Historiensaeule" (History Column". It is a 10 meter tall depiction of Koblenz's known 2000 year history, from Romans to modern times. The details are impressive.

Came across this fountain by chance. So pleased we did. It is fascinating telling the history of 2000 years of Koblenz. Do not rush by, you keep seeing more and more detail all the time. It was very moving to see next to the top...More

The amount of detail is incredible. We sat and watched the fountain/art for many minutes. As you walk around it take note of all of the detail.
