Another photo of same- it's at the confluence of the Rhine and the Moselle. Apparently 'confluentes' is latin for merging and this is the derivative of the name Koblenz.
The statue is of Kaiser Wilhelm and was erected in 1897 sometime after his death. The statue was destroyed in 1945 by an Allied artillery shell but the people of Koblenz ' wanted their old Emperor back' and raised the money to have a replacement statue in 1953.
Note the Rhine cruiser in the foreground.
Two more photos of the Loreley Rock. Apparently in the old Rhine language 'loreley' meant murmuring [ with todays increased traffic this can no longer be heard], and is probably the basis of the story of the singing maiden luring vessels and men onto the rocks. It is also the narrowest part of the river between Switzerland and the North Sea. It is on a bend and has a very strong current and underwater rocks. In 2011 a barge carrying sulphuric acid hit these rocks, blocked all traffic for days and two crew died. We were impressed watching these large cumbersome barges steering around the bend and fighting the current. The river at this point has navigation controls and these operate a one way system where barges do not cross at this point.
