A guided tour around this castle is interesting and informative. Great views from various windows in the castle. The building reminded me of Hogwarts at Universal Studios but I didn't mention that! There is a coffee shop/restaurant at the castle with great views.

If this is your very first visit to a "Burg" in Germany you will probably be quite impressed. But compared to the surrounding burgs in Mosel area this is at best average. First of all you can't walk in the burg alone - it has to be done with guide (Burg Thurant for example you can walk around on your... More

Stretching along both banks of the Mosel, Cochem is an ideal base to visit the Mosel Valley and a knockout visit by itself. The highlights for us were the castle and the market square. A walk through the old town and up to the castle is well worth several hours. We took two day trips from Cochem as well: to... More

Definitely worth a visit to this unusual/fascinating castle. You also get spectacular views all over Cochem. Only 6 Euros to get in and this includes a guided tour, although only in German. English visitors are given a printed sheet with the info on it. It's bit of a steep climb and you can walk back a different way which is... More

Frankly, I was hoping to see Burg Eltz. In fact I considered taking a $100 taxi ride there, but I choose to stay with the Viking River Cruise guide for the Burg and was very pleased. Great views of the Mosel River.

My favorite photos are from up at this castle looking down on the Moselle. Frankly my husband and I had seen enough castles and sort of tired of tours but fortunately the tour guide was fairly brief. Do go for a visit though. It is beautiful and the view is the best!

Just spent three days in Cochem. The castle was absolutely fantastic. The views all over Cochem are stunning, but from the castle even more so. It is the most perfect setting and a feast for the eyes

We parked nearby, walked up to the castle and took the tour. It was a nice tour and is a nice way to spend a couple of hours while visiting Cochem
