fantastic views and a castle full of the stuff to entrance kids - knights, costume drama and towers to fire the imagination. If you like climbing, walk up in trainers or strong shoes. Make thismone of the places you visit along the Mosel. There are so many hidden gems along these vineyards : try the Kreuz atopmthe Calmont Klettersteig for... More

We really enjoyed our tour of the castle. Even though it was in German we had English information sheets, which were very useful. There are some beautiful rooms and interesting artefacts. This is definitely worth a visit, particularly for a good view of the valley from the castle.

Awesome castle with wonderful history. And even though our host was very concern about her proficiency in the English language her English was far better than others who boasted that offered English speaking tours. I only wish there was some more information on individual furniture pieces that were around the castle.

Great to see a castle that is active. They have still many people dressed up like knights, etc. Kids and adults alike will love it, many performances all along. You can walk up the castle (if you are fit), or take a bus up to the entrance (for the less fit ones) Enjoy the beautiful views of the town, and... More

Worth to come here to enjoy different performances and crafts from former times. Also quite busy, with good weather it is pleasant to sit under a sun umbrella and enjoy the activities. Did not have the time to go inside the castle buildings, however it looks big and stunning and will see it next time.

We went with a guided tour arranged by our river cruise. The tour was in English and it was great! I loved the architecture, rooms, history and furnishings. One of the best tours I went on in Germany. However, if someone has physical impairments that makes it difficult to go up and down stairs, this would not be the tour... More

The castle was impossible to find by car so we parked and were lucky enough to find our way up a steep path. Arriving at the top I was most bemused to see we could have driven. As an earlier review pointed out, no thought to sign posts. We paid for our ticket and had to wait for the next... More

There is something so light about this castle! Situated on a hill overlooking Mozella river,a crown on Cochem's head. No huge, heavy fortifications; the castle has been reconstructed in the Gothic Revival style. It has a complicated structure, with many ornamental arcitectural inspirations on different levels that make it resemble a "Disneyland" castle! The interior is as interesting as the... More

Our touring group of 42 was taken by minivan to the top. This truly is not walkable for the average person. We had a guided tour (in English) with a super guide. We were all over this castle learning so much. Photos were allowed, which was very important to the photographers in our group. There are lots of viewpoints to... More
