Koblenz, Nähe »Deutsches Eck«, mit Blick auf Festu
Viewpoint · Romantischer Rhein
William Turner - Standort 01
Koblenz, near “Deutsches Eck”, with view of Ehrenbreitstein FortressWhen Turner stays at Koblenz from 21st to 23rd August 1817 he is so fascinated by Ehrenbreitstein Fortress that he makes several sketches of it from various different viewpoints. On subsequent journeys (between 1839 and 1844) he returns to the city at “Deutsches Eck”, never tiring of the subject of the lofty fortress. In this work he gazes across the river from the left bank (in Koblenz) to the opposite bank of the Rhine. The fortress can be faintly made out in the contour of the hillside, the rocks and fortress appearing to form a single entity. Today Ehrenbreitstein Fortress is owned by the Federal State of Rhineland-Palatinate and is open to the public.
Einmündung der Lahn - Standort 02
Viewpoint · Romantischer Rhein
William Turner - Standort 02
On 23rd August 1817 Turner leaves Koblenz and walks upstream along the left bank of the Rhine. Shortly before reaching Stolzenfels Castle he stops to make the sketch for this watercolour. The painting shows the mouth of the river which lies ahead of him (in the middle of the picture), framed by rocky scenery on both sides of the river. On the right of the picture the dark silhouette of Stolzenfels Castle rises against the hillside. It is notable that Turner places the mouth of the River Lahn on the wrong side of the Rhine. Whether this was for compositional reasons, or whether it was a mistake on Turner’s part remains obscure. Only a few hundred metres further on Turner takes the ferry across to Lahnstein. Today Stolzenfels Castle is owned by the Federal State of Rhineland-Palatinate and is open to the public.

Löwentor & Parkanlage
The Löwentor (Lion Gate) is the impressive, crenellated gate of the disbanded Prussian fortress of Kaiser Alexander. The griffins on either side of the portal, cast in the Sayner Hütte, and the large inscription give a good impression of the military and urban impression of the complex.
