All cities seem to have their sculptures and fountains,but here is an interesting and entertainment no mix of the two. Not something that rates as a great attraction, but not to be missed if in the vicinity.

Kids would love this-it has so many aspects to it. I think it’s a good laugh and very clever in its creation and interaction of various parts.

An interesting column featured in a nice square in the old town of Koblenz. There is a description of the column nearby to help one understand each stage of history depicted (from Roman times to current). Not worth a trip to see, but a worthwhile...More

Really interesting how the 12 different levels tell the history of Koblenz! Hopefully someone will be there to explain the history to you! Nice square with lots of shops around it!
