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.
