From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Koblenz , also spelled Coblenz  or Coblence , is a German city situated on both banks of the Rhine at its confluence with the Moselle, where the Deutsches Eck (German Corner) and its monument (Emperor William I on horseback) are situated.

As K was one of the military posts established by Drusus about 8 BC, the city celebrated its 2000th anniversary in 1992.

The name K originates from Latin (ad) confluentes, confluence or “(at the) merging of rivers”. Subsequently it was Covelenz and Cobelenz. In the local dialect the name is Kowelenz.

After Mainz and Ludwigshafen am Rhein, it is the third largest city in Rhineland-Palatinate, with a population of c. 106,000 (2006). K lies in the Rhineland.
