Görresplatz
The area of today's Görresplatzes in Koblenz Old Town—archaeological findings prove this - was already settled by the Romans. In the Middle Ages it belonged to the property of the Kastorstift, later to the Jesuit order. In the 19th century it was gradually built on and became municipal property. From 1827 to 1872, the publishing house of Carl Baedeker, who became famous for his travel guides, was located at Görresplatz.
