Getting to Cochem from Luxembourg City for a day trip was incredibly easy...a return journey for 11 euros/person with a quick change of trains (you don't even have you leave the platform, just walk to the opposite end) and you've got an awesome mini adventure for a day! Reichsburg Cochem is a short walk from the train station and you... More

The Reichsburg Cochem should not be missed when traveling through the Rhineland-Palatinate of Germany along the Mosel River valley. You may take a tram from the river/street level up to the castle, which lies on a bluff providing commanding views of the area and particularly the river. However, walk up the hill on the paved pathway, if your health allows;... More

My first German castle after a visit to France's Loire valley. Tours only are allowed inside, there are no options for a self tour. The tour was in German but English speakers were provided with a handout to read for each stop and the lovely guide translated the main points for us. The castle is stunning and beautifully decorated allowing... More

We visit Cochem on the Mosel River every year! When I do I usually take a tour of the Caste. We never get tired of the Reichsburg and always discover something new. Either on the walk up or while there like having coffee and cake on the Terrace. The view is lovely.

A fascinating tour of the castle. I took the shorter walk up that goes around the back of the hill and the longer, more picturesque, walk back that goes around the front of the hill. I enjoyed the visit but it was a shame that there was no English whatsoever spoken on the tour, only German. Those of us who... More

If you are in this beautiful small town of Cochem, don't forget to visit this old fort. As they say it was originally built 1000 years ago, thereafter ruined and rebuilt many times. The present structure is nearly 300 years old made from the donations collected from local people. Nearly 100 m above the river Mosel this fort also had... More

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.
