On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Knights' Fall Conference, the square area high above the Middle Rhine Valley was fundamentally redesigned. The character of the memorial was largely preserved, but its expression was significantly strengthened. The new design stages the memorial (Rudi Scheuermann, 1978) as the centre of the square situation without having changed it spatially. Sixteen rays of natural stone paving symbolize the federal states of the reunited Germany. Seating blocks invite visitors both to look at the monument and to enjoy the unique view over the Rhine valley and the Koblenz cityscape.
