THE TOWN: Koblenz is a city in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate in the Federal Republic of Germany. It has about 110,000 inhabitants; the surrounding area accounts for about 400,000 people in total. Lonely Planet writes on it:”At the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle Rivers and the convergence of three low mountain ranges – the Hunsrück, the Eifel and the Westerwald – Koblenz’ roots go all the way back to the Romans, who founded a military stronghold here (calling it Confluentes) because of the site’s supreme strategic value.
Today, this park- and flower-filled city is the northern gateway to the Romantic Rhine and the bottom of the Moselle Valley, making it an ideal gateway for exploring the region.”
