Down by the corner

Koblenz is a german city with +100,000 inhabitants,
It lies on the western bank of the Rhine, where the Moselle flows into the Rhine.
Here in the evening, from the hills, easterly to the river Rhine.

The two rivers run together at the landmarks Deutsches Eck,
on which in 1897 a 37 meter high rider statue of Emperor Wilhelm 1 was built.

Short street art walk.

Koblenz was established as a military post by Drusus about 2030 years ago.

All inspired from wonderful “Restlessjo” and her “Monday walk” themes.

The main title relates both a CCR song and that Koblenz in many ways is a corner.

The worth visiting Thursday’s Special themes created by Paula
The inspiring theme this week “Urban Art

Urban art is a multifaceted concept.
Organized murals.
Unorganised murals.
Fountains or water effects.
Sculptures and statues.
Architectural additions.
Plantings.
Light fixtures and lighting effects.
– and so on.

So often we forget to see where we go.
– It could be urban art too.
