Summer flowers and History Column at the Josef Görres-Platz in Koblenz

To celebrate our 100th articles of Germany, we go back to last summer in the hope that the sun will join us soon in the cold spring period. The Josef Görres-Platz in Koblenz has some nice buildings and many landscaped areas with beautiful flowers, mainly Roses and Dahlias. In the middle of the square you see the large History Column with at the lowest level a fountain above a wine ship. The column displays 2.000 years of Koblenz history. Ten major events are worked out in the column and most of them are representing wars. I will not go deeper into this topic and dream away of the warm weather we hope to get in the coming weeks.

Om ons 100ste artikel van Duitsland te vieren, hebben we in ons archief van vorige zomer gegraven en hopen we dat de zon snel zijn intrede in de lente zal maken. De Josef Görres-Platz in Koblenz wordt omringt door mooie huizen, het heeft verschillende aangelegde bloemenpercelen met hoofdzakelijk rozen en Dalia's. In het midden van het plein zie je de Historische Zuil, die 2.000 jaar van de geschiedenis van de stad uitbeeld. Op het laagste niveau vaart er een wijnschip waarboven een fontein water spuit. De meeste taferelen in de zuil beelden oorlogen uit en daar gaan we niet verder op in gaan. We dromen weg van de mooie zonovergoten dagen die we in de komende weken kunnen verwachten..

  10. So interesting, the strong dark stone in comparison with the lovely and fragile colorful flowers. Truly a post of opposites.
