This castle has outstanding vies of the Mosel river. You have to take a bus up to the castle at round trip cost of 4 euro. Then the entry fee to castle itself is 6 euro for adults. The tour is all in German, but language sheets are provided for other languages, but you are still missing some of the... More

Shuttle bus from the bus station up to the Reichsburg, where you can freely look at the outer castle and views, and enjoy hot and cold drinks as well as snacks in the cafe. For a small entrance fee of €6 you get a guided tour of the inside of the restored castle. Although in German you can ask for... More

We walked up to the castle from the town of Cochem- about 15-20 minutes uphill from the Markt (town square). Once there, we purchased tickets from the English-speaking cashier in the gift shop, and waited about 15 minutes for our tour to begin. Tours are conducted in German (also seemed to be some Dutch tours available?), but the guides hand... More

Nice tour of this rebuilt medieval castle looking over the river. German spoken with written translations (and some comments) in other languages.

Tours are only in German, so very hard to follow along. You have to be part of the tour to see the castle. Our guide told an hours worth of history and stories in nine rooms and our English sheet was a small paragraph in each. Would be a good ten minute tour but an hour was very long

We took a guided tour that started in the town of Cochem and after a short walking tour went by minibus to the castle. The tour of the castle includes walking through different rooms and contains numerous antiques including intricate and delicate wood carved furniture. There was plenty of time to take in the beauty of the town and river... More

Admittance only through guided tours, which lasts about 20 min. You 'll see 5 or six rooms. But the view is awsom.

This was brilliant. Supurb castle with magnificent views of the Moselle River and the town of Cochem. The castle itself was unforgettable. The tour guides fantastic. Couldn't ask for more. Highly recommended.

Reichsburg castle sits high above Cochem and offers beautiful views of the river and village. It's a little bit of a hike up the hill but it was nice to get some exercise after lunch. There is a shuttle but I'm not sure cost/times. The castle is only able to be visited by tour, and was reasonably priced (12 euro... More

Riding up the path to see this up on the hill then riding into town....spectacular! After checking into our hotel we walk up to the castle from the town square and the visit was worth it! Beautifully restored.
