Had to visit here while in Cochem! If you are in Cochem, you must visit the Burg. Even if you are just in the Mosel Valley, you need to visit! I had been here many times in the past, but was traveling with my girlfriend and family, who had never been here. There are a few ways to reach the... More

take a slow walk up to the Burg. Steep climb but worth it. take your time and join a guided tour, it shows a little of the local history.

Among all the castle tours I've had from all my travels my whole life, this one's the one that I enjoyed the most. The guide is very patient, friendly and very entertaining. I love everything about this castle, in and out. The exhibits are awesome, the view is awesome - it's such an awesome experience! It's reasonably priced compared to... More

The view from the castle of the town of Cochem and the Mosel River is excellent. The tour of the castle is very nice. We attended a special Knights's Dinner that was served in the medieval way without utensils. The food and entertainment were both excellent.

It's a nice walk for about 20 minutes from the main centre. You get a great view of Cochem from up here. The castle itself is a gem, with a great tour -- it was in German but there was an English translation on paper, and the tour guide sometimes told jokes in English, which was pretty sweet. Cool place... More

My family of four (teenagers) did this tour and were really surprised. Firstly were we lucky enough to get an English tour as the other German speaking visitors wanted to brush up on their English - so that made it easier for us to enjoy the full extent of the tour ( otherwise a sheet in English is offered to...

We went here round lunchtime and had an excellent tour which was even done on English for us and many of the group who were English speakers. The few Germans on the tour graciously agreed as they wanted to improve there English. Wish we could speak that much German! It was a good tour to fill an hour with a... More

Travel back in time to enjoy what it must have been like to be a guest of the Lord of the Manor! The journey begins with a tour of the castle, meticulously restored, with all the things you hope to see in a castle. The metal armour of the guards, magnificent sitting and dining rooms, artwork and secret doors to... More

This castle located high above the town offers a wonderful view of the city and the magnificent river Mosel. On the way you will see several schools and parrerais very well maintained.

Private tour of Castle in English. Our guide was friendly and answered all our questions and we were a group of 24. If your in Cochem, don't leave until you have seen the castle upfront and personal. The views are just spectacular over the Mosel river!
