Vintage postcard: Camping at Deutsches Eck in Koblenz, Germany

This vintage black-and-white postcard shows a large group of people camping in Koblenz, Germany. The card was produced by Verlag Foto-Gauls of Koblenz and the caption on the back side states:

Campingplatz "DEUTSCHES ECK"
Koblenz on Rhein und Mosel

It's not too hard to translate:

Deutsches Eck campsite
Koblenz on the Rhine and Moselle

Deutsches Eck is the headland where the Moselle river joins the Rhine in Koblenz. Its English translation is "German Corner."

Learn more about Koblenz on the city's English-language tourism website. (There's still time to get yourself over there for the Koblenzer Summer Party with Rhine in Flames from August 9-11!)

There are many great details within the undated photograph used for this postcard. You can click on the above image to see a magnification of the photo.
