The Castle overlooks the town and the river and is very impressive. The walk up to the castle makes you appreciate how difficult it would be to attack it. Every step presents a different photo opportunity. The 5 Euro tour takes about 40 minutes and is conducted in German, but non Germans are given a leaflet in their own language... More

We recently visited the castle during our trip to Cochem. It was a long walk up the hill, but the views of the Mosel River valley are great. It is a beautiful castle, and we enjoyed the tour even though the guide conducted most of the tour in German. We were given a paper in English that explained what we... More

Besides Burg Eltz, this is the second most impressive castle I've seen. It's truly a spectacle! Also, the tour was really nice. It was all in German, but we had a piece of paper with information. Also, look into doing the Knights Meal! It was great too, once again in German, but we sat next to some really friendly Germans... More

A lovely castle to visit, with beautiful views overlooking Cochem and the Mosel river. It was raining when we visited so we decided to try to drive up to the castle. We had read that it is almost impossible to find the road but we had no difficulties and managed to drive almost all the way up to the castle... More

The Castle, ranked #10 on Conde Nast's lists of world-wide castles, is a definite must see whether your destination is the town of Cochem or you are a castle/ history enthusiast. The castle, once in a state of ruin was renovated by one family over an extended period of time. The castle and grounds are in excellent shape and well... More

Beautiful castle, the tours inside are worth it although it is all in German but they will give you a sheet in english to explain whats being shown.

A stunning old castle right off the banks of the Mosel River. Outstanding views of the town and river below. Excellent guided tour. The rooms are in good shape. You really learn a lot about living in that era. Easy to walk down into town.

It's a heck of a walk up but it is worth it. We didn't do the tour so I can't say how good that is but the view from outside is superb. I always enjoy visiting Cochem and the Castle always looks so impressive.

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
