We visited some friends in Koblenz and decided to take a one day train ticket to go and visit the nearby places. One of them was Cochem, a very chic and welcoming city. If you're looking for an amazing, peaceful experience, you should visit this city. From the paved streets to the small shops and restaurants, it give you the... More

Must go to the village and take a walk in the cobbled streets. On the promenade... and have a coffee. Try to avoid holidays and late in the evening, after 8.. almost everything is closed.

Despite being systematically destroyed since the 12th century and finally rebuilt as a summer house for a rich businessman from Berlin, the castle tour was a lot of fun. The walk up from town provides a great views up and down the Mosel river. Our guide spoke German however we had English translation sheets and she made sure to give... More

We were given an excellent, 40 minute tour of this magnificent castle for a very reasonable €6 per adult. Our guide established nationalities at the outset & gave out an A4 sheet in the relevant language which covered the main points of interest. She spoke clearly throughout & I was able to follow some of the German. In addition, she... More

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
