Koblenz, near “Deutsches Eck”, with view of Ehrenbreitstein Fortress

When 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.
