Very nice castle AND they actually let you use flash photography inside the castle. The tour guide was AWESOME!
The tour was in all German however they provided a pamphlet that had the entire tour in other languages including English. It was very easy to follow along. The view of the river were breathtaking!
It was a bit of a hike up to the castle since my group parked our car down in the village. (There was parking a lot closer to the castle though). We were able to purchase tour tickets quickly and easily and our tour started only a few minutes after we arrived. The tour guide was multi-lingual and asked the... More
a nice castle. in a wonderful environment . surounded with vineyard. the best time to visit the area is the first weekend of august . during the Castle Festival of the Reichsburg. the best place for a panoramic view towards mosel river.
Castle Cochem is a wonderful example of German Castles. I've visited it twice, and if you don't plan ahead it can be challenging since they will be doing the tour in German.

This was our third trip to the castle and it was as impressive as the other visits. Because we visited during the winter season, the tour was in German but we were given read-along sheets stating facts about each room. Our tour guide also spoke English so we were able to ask questions as they came up.
I went on a tour with my parents around the castle with a guide we were the only English speakers there so the guide had to keep changing from German to English every sentence. The castle is really good as is the tour. During The Second World War the castle was in the hands of the nazis.
In Cochem for a few hours visiting a number of Christmas markets. On arrival in the town, which is lovely, our coach driver said that walking up the hill to the Reichsburg while a bit of a challenge was worthwhile because of the great views from the top. He was right on both counts. I was a bit puggled (Scottish... More
