We were in Cochem at the time of the Wine Festival, which was wonderful. However it did make the journey by moped difficult as a lot of the roads had been shut off. Managed to find way in eventually but worth it if only for the views. Tours were in German, but English could easily have been added as guide... More

Just back from Cohen, we were lucky to be there during Wine festival. Castle is nice, and only guided tours are allowed. Once we bought family ticket and entered castle with guide and group, we realised that it is German speaking tour, and we got two pieces of paper to read (for four of us). On my question to confirm... More

The tour of the castle itself was good and worth doing. Make sure you take the bus as the walk is long and steep. The way down is ok and there are some good weinguts on the way down. If you make the trip to the castle, make sure you see a falconry show. The shows are in German and... More

We have visited several tourist sites of Cochem at the Moselle Valley during our trip in August, namely the Market Square which has an attractive collection of half-timbered houses, the Church of St. Martin, the Balduin's Gate and the famous Reichsburg which is now largely the product of 19th century restorers but inside the castle, there are still many collections...

For 5 euros this is the best value and hour you could have. Castle both looks stunning and the setting is to die for. Castle offers fabulous views of the town and river. The inside of the castle is immaculate and although the tour was in German the guide did advise also in English and gave out fact sheets in... More

Very interesting trip round this castle that was built about 1000 years ago but was rebuilt over 100 years ago after being destroyed by Louis XIV

We went as a group with 4 children ranging from 2 to 7 years old and the guided tour gave them very little to be interested in. The entire tour was in German, although the guide also spoke English, French and some Dutch (although not during the tour). The times she did speak Dutch was to tell my 2-year-old to... More

The views were beautiful and the tour interesting. Although the tour which lasts about 45 minutes was in German the guide will give a written English translation if asked for.

Excellent value,only 5 euro's entrance fee,very lucky to obtain a completely English language tour,but what a climb and we were the lucky one's who were informed of the easy route.Buses are available if you can get on one.
