We had a walking tour of Old Koblenz which took us to this fountain/monument, which is quite like any other. It does tell an interesting story - but we woul not recommend going out of one's way to see it.

It’s neat to see. The shops and restaurants are located around the fountain. Great place to stop and get something to eat.
