As soon as I arrived to Koblenz after a 3 hour trip, I went to the Tourist Information, where I was given a city map. The town has the shape of a triangle and it is located on both banks of the Rhein River at its confluence with the Moselle River. Yes, Koblenz -from Latin (ad) confluentes- is the place where the Mosel and the Rhein meet.

It´s really small on the other side of the river but it´s adorable.
Back to Koblenz. The touristic places, although it is a working day, are quite busy. It´s a sunny and warm day (Yes!) Of course, as I observe in many other cities of this part of Europe, shops always have customers.
|Cool sculptures here and there.|
Plan your own adventure: Return train ticket (Luxembourg - Koblenz) with just one change in Wittlich (Germany): €30. For a late lunch, I had a yummy Caprese salad with a glass of fresh local white wine. Prices are a bit cheaper than in Luxembourg.
It was great to leave Lux for a day and enjoy Koblenz during five sunny hours. It´s a charming town.
