Zentralplatz, 56068 Koblenz
After several years of slumber, Koblenzer Zentralplatz has awakened again in 2013 and is now the pulsating centre of the city on the Rhine and Moselle. In addition to the Forum Mittelrhein - one of the most modern shopping centres in the region - art and culture have also found a new home here with the Forum Confluentes.
Zentralplatz was only created after the Second World War, in the course of the reconstruction of the city of Koblenz, and is therefore not a historically grown square like the other Koblenz squares in the Old Town. Before the Second World War, this area was densely covered with half-timbered houses and was completely devastated by the heavy air raids on Koblenz.
In the course of the reconstruction, the central square was recreated. Until its demolition in the mid-1960s, part of the medieval city wall, called the "Water Tower Wall", ran here.
