The Deutschherrenshaus or Deutschordenshaus in Koblenz was the first branch of the Teutonic Order in the Rhineland. Since 1992 it has been home to the Ludwig Museum with contemporary, predominantly French art.
Archbishop Theoderich von Wied summoned the Knights of the Teutonic Order to Koblenz in 1216 and gave them part of the grounds of the St. Kastor monastery together with the St. Nikolaus hospital located there. A branch of the Teutonic Order was soon established on the site, directly at the confluence of the Rhine and Moselle rivers. The site was initially referred to as "Deutscher Ordt" and soon afterwards as "Deutsches Eck".
It was only with the construction of the Kaiser Wilhelm I monument in 1897 that the name "Deutsches Eck" shifted from the site of the Deutschordensniederlassung to the area of the monument, which is now commonly referred to as "Deutsches Eck".
Due to the destruction of 1944, only the former administrative building - the Deutschherrenhaus - remains of the extensive buildings of the Teutonic Knights.
