The tip of the park is shaped like a ship's prow, overlooked by an enormous equestrian statue of Kaiser Wilhelm mounted on an equally-huge stone base that you can climb for a great view of the rivers and opposite shore castle.

The ****-Rhein-Hotel Diehl's Terrassen is situated directly at the Rhine, below the Ehrenbreitstein castle, with a view of the Deutsches Eck from every room. Unfortunately, only a few metres from a busy railway. (Diehl's hotel)

A youth hostel is located at castle "Festung Ehrenbreitstein". From there you have a nice view over Koblenz (http://old.web02.djh.de/international/html/index_map.jsp?ID=9).
