The castle is gorgeous and our tour guide was awesome! The tour was in German, and we only speak English, but the tour guide gave us the highlights in English which was really great because she didn't have to. The castle is really neat and if staying in Cochem, you should definitely visit, but I have to recommend visiting Eltz... More

A spectacular medieval castle with a great story, incredible views, and memorable village. This is great for a family trip. My 11-year-old daughter loved the castle and the village. Very friendly and quite informative. The guide at the castle was superior. I'd recommend staying in Cochem versus Koblenz, and we took the train rather than the ferry out of Koblenz.... More

Lovely castle with great views of the valley. A bit of a climb but worth the effort. Has a restaurant and gift shop. Guided tour available.

Great day trip for the family, small castle and ground but a must see, there is so much architecture to take in with all the history. Bonus if you make it when they are having their feast.

This place was great fun. You have the option of taking a tour with the family or going with a group. We went with a tour and had a tour of the castle and then did the medieval dinner which was a lot of fun. We toured seven rooms of the castle that were decorated really nice. We had a... More

A fine reconstructed castle overlooking the Mosel River. They also have a prey of bird show on most days on the castle grounds. Unfortunately, the tour is only in German, but they do provide handouts in other languages so you partially follow what the guide is talking about. The fee is modest and you get to see a well furnished... More

Castle is nice and worth walking up to. But don't go in unless you want to hear the full details in German about old furniture. Castle is not that new.

There is no way my pictures could do this place justice. It was a dream come true vacation through Viking River Cruises. One of the stops was the little village of Cochem along the Moselle river in Germany. The maze of little shops, bakeries on the corner, the town square were more than I could have even imagined. Then to... More

The town of Cochem owns the castle and has done a great job of raising the money to restore the castle. The tours are amazing and the dinners are fun. Views from the castle are awe inspiring! You look down on the town seeing both sides of the river, the river boat traffic and vineyards. Very enjoyable experience.
