The view from the castle of the town of Cochem and the Mosel River is excellent. The tour of the castle is very nice. We attended a special Knights's Dinner that was served in the medieval way without utensils. The food and entertainment were both excellent.

It's a nice walk for about 20 minutes from the main centre. You get a great view of Cochem from up here. The castle itself is a gem, with a great tour -- it was in German but there was an English translation on paper, and the tour guide sometimes told jokes in English, which was pretty sweet. Cool place... More

My family of four (teenagers) did this tour and were really surprised. Firstly were we lucky enough to get an English tour as the other German speaking visitors wanted to brush up on their English - so that made it easier for us to enjoy the full extent of the tour ( otherwise a sheet in English is offered to...

We went here round lunchtime and had an excellent tour which was even done on English for us and many of the group who were English speakers. The few Germans on the tour graciously agreed as they wanted to improve there English. Wish we could speak that much German! It was a good tour to fill an hour with a... More

Travel back in time to enjoy what it must have been like to be a guest of the Lord of the Manor! The journey begins with a tour of the castle, meticulously restored, with all the things you hope to see in a castle. The metal armour of the guards, magnificent sitting and dining rooms, artwork and secret doors to... More

This castle located high above the town offers a wonderful view of the city and the magnificent river Mosel. On the way you will see several schools and parrerais very well maintained.

Private tour of Castle in English. Our guide was friendly and answered all our questions and we were a group of 24. If your in Cochem, don't leave until you have seen the castle upfront and personal. The views are just spectacular over the Mosel river!

I attended a tour of the Reichsburg Castle in Cochem, Germany in November 2014. It lasted about 45 minutes and went into detail on the building, reconstruction and furnishing of this medieval "Schloss" overlooking the Rhine River. The tour cost only 5 Euros, but it was in German. Unless you have a private tour guide, you will have to try... More

Our tour guide at the castle was excellent - making the experience very enjoyable! Unfortunately I don't remember her name, or I would give her credit. The castle was beautiful.
