When one of my family pointed to the castle and said "let's go there" I thought - that's a long way up there. However, 30 minutes later and after lots of muscle-burn I made it. The castle is stunning and the views are worth it. The tour was very reasonably priced and took about 40 mins. The trip down was... More

It's quite a walk up to the castle, but do it anyway because it's worth it. There are shuttle buses as well. We took the tour which was in German but found the translation that was handed to the English speakers quite informative, our guide also translated some funny parts for us in English. Definitely a must see attraction in... More

This tour is mainly for German speakers. They give you a sheet to read (ours was in English), but you're moving through so fast it's hard to read and enjoy what you're seeing at the same time.

Although it is a long and very steep climb, it is totally worth the effort. It is only allowed to enter with a guided tour, which is good,... More

This castle was more than a ruins. The views from the castle are gorgeous, you can see little villages along the river bends in both directions, each centered around a church. The castle and town has seen hundreds of years of good times and wartime, but the city has preserved its past in this amazing castle. Cochem was a fun... More

Cochem is a beautiful town and the castle is a must see site. The walk up to the castle is a little steep but worth it. The castle is nicely decorated and the view is spectacular.

the only way to see the caste from inside is to take guided tour so do not hesitate. It is on germen but you can ask any questions and most interesting points are explained in plain English.
