"Besides the 54 known chemical elements there is in the physical world one agent only, and this is called Kraft (energy). It may appear, according to circumstances, as motion, chemical affinity, cohesion, electricity, light and magnetism; and from any one of these forms it can be transformed into any of the others." - Karl Friedrich Mohr's statement in his doctrine on conservation of energy.
The German city was an important station for the French garrison in the 17th century and still retains its defensive network of forts attracting many visitors to hotels in Koblenz.
