We had a walking tour of Old Koblenz which took us to this fountain/monument, which is quite like any other. It does tell an interesting story - but we woul not recommend going out of one's way to see it.

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.

A unique interesting fountain in a great location. Much more than the usual civic sculpture. Koblenz has some very notable and unusual water features throughout the City centre but this is the largest and best and represents centuries of history. Worth seeking out but you'll...More
