Kastorhof, 56068 Koblenz

In 1812, the French prefect Jules Doazan had a basalt fountain with a commemorative inscription built in front of the Kastor church in anticipation of Emperor Napoleon's victorious campaign in Russia.

Despite the great defeat, neither the fountain nor the inscription were removed. Instead, on January 1, 1814, the Russian commander of Koblenz, after the victorious conquest of the Rhineland by Blücher's army, added a further lettering on January 1, 1814, which humorously invalidates the first. Today the fountain is more to the west of its original location, the group of figures was removed as early as the 19th century, but apart from that it is still one of the most important sources of water in Koblenz.
