Beautiful Castle - overlooking the river

Docents were excellent. Castle is in good repair. Maintained as if for a previous owner, who thought of it as a fantasy castle.

We visited the castle and paid the admission fee and obtained tickets. However we were not allowed to enter the castle as individuals but only as a member of a guided group. A guide kindly allowed us to join a group of people from a Viking cruise ship but other individuals were excluded due to numbers and language problems. The... More

This castle was beautifully restored in the 1800s - so touring it gives you views of the original structure and the time period of restoration. Some of the pieces inside are exquisite - from paintings to the armor of a relative giant to the word working. We are English speaking only. The tour is supposedly in German, with a handout... More

The castle is worth seeing! Upon arriving is Cochem you see it sitting high above the Mosel. If you are fit, walk up the hill, if not there is a shuttle bus that you can get near the market square. You must pay for the tour, or you cannot go in - it was worth it. There is a cafe/restaurant... More

This castle has a long history, dating back to the year 1000 AD, and two of the main towers are still standing and part of the tour. While the castle was destroyed by the French in the 17th Century, it was a rich Frenchman from Berlin who bought the property and refurbished it in the 19th Century. This castle is... More

I really liked this one. The guide was amazing, gave us plenty of time to take pictures (her name was Marie Louise) and there was breathtaking views both inside and outside. Just...I really loved it!!!

Great experience to visit the castle, which is kept in a nice condition. The guided tour (performed by a 19 year old guy), managed to give a very interesting and entertaining tour through the castle. You have an excellent view over the Mosel valley/river. By the way, we took the bus up (single EUR 2.50/person and both ways EUR 4.-).... More

My (16 yo) daughter and I walked up to the castle from the city center and it took about 15 minutes. Don't quote me though because it was raining and we may or may not have stopped a few times because we needed a slight break. My husband and in-laws took a bus because my MIL uses a cane and...
