Old town of Koblenz was always shaped as a triangular - two sides of which are rivers Rhine and Mosel, while the third side was a line of fortifications. This strategic location was appreciated back in 8BC by Romans when they established a military post - thus, citizens celebrated 2000th of anniversary in 1992. Remains of Roman-built bridge can still be found. Most fortifications were gone after 1890 but citadel of Ehrenbreitstein still overlooks the town from another bank of the Rhine. The town is an important centre of the Mosel and Rhenish wine trade.
