A short but steep walk up the mountain gets you to the Reichsburg castle. Even without visiting the castle itself you can enjoy the view of the city below, the vineyards and of course the river. The castle itself is worth a visit as well with many beautifull rooms and objects. For those not able to walk up the mountain... More

As was mentioned elsewhere, "Now THIS is a castle!" Wonderfully restored and maintained, with the flag of the family flying boldly in the wind. Many views to enjoy!

The tour of the the castle was brought to life by a very well informed tour guide (with an excellent sense of humour and spoke a multitude of langues fluently). The entry price was reasonable, but the duration of the tour felt short, there again on reflection it was possibly due to being kept interested on the way around. It... More

Outstanding on all accounts and by all accounts (as I did not need to visit the interior) to enjoy what is on offer here. From the 10-15 min relatively easy ascent from Cochem town through the ever present vineyards to the flagged and cobbled heights, this is a first rate experience. And if you do not wish to pay for...

I enjoyed it but the only downside is that is you don't speak the language your only choice is to grab a print out (very small letters) in the language you speak but then it is difficult to follow the guide as you are reading along! I thought one would be able to enter and just enjoy the view without... More

This castle is well worth visiting or even the village of Cochem itself. Beware how you get to the castle, our GPS took us through a shopping area, which may have been a pedestrian zone. Also, parking is available at the very base of the castle. We were unsure about the parking arrangement and stopped at the very first park... More

Although the castle was originally built a thousand years ago, only a very few sections are original. What you tour through is the castle as reconstructed by a wealthy family in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. Still worthwhile, but in particular for the spectacular views of the Mosel River. We walked up. Don't. There is parking, even though... More

The castle looked amazing from the river front, and is definitely a nice photo to grab. The hike to the castle, however, can be somewhat rough if you have kids or a stroller. They have a shuttle, but it wasn't really advertised from down at the bottom of the hill. When we got to the top, the castle looked beautiful,... More

Although not listed in the guidebooks as a top castle location we enjoyed this perhaps even more than Burg Eltz - 20E included 6E entrance & 4E round trip bus, each; the guide was great, and a group of Aussies let us join their tour so that we could hear it in English. Photos allowed everywhere (a rarity), lots of... More
