From down in the town or anywhere nearby, this castle presents an imposing sight. It is an easy 10 minute walk up to the gates. There are incredible views from the terrace. Entrance is by guided tour only. For English only speakers, there are pamphlets to go along with the tour. When being the tour, you are let in through... More

Originally built around 1000AD as a castle for the Counts Palatine, but destroyed by the French in 1689, it was rebuilt by Ravene's architects in the romantic style, incorporating the original foundations of the walls and keep. A true fairy tale castle offering a fascinating guided tour - in English - of various parts of the castle with its superb... More

Really beautiful place close to Köln, about 3 hours from Amsterdam; very friendly people and a beautiful castle overlooking the town, which ads a beautiful simple maze of medieval feeling streets. A nice weekend stay!

The castle is really amazing and surrounded by vineyards. I visited it Mid September, everything was so green and fresh and the sun shining above the river! The castle is 10 minutes walking from the river banks area and is totally worth it to visit even for a coffee at the terrace with amazing view over the Mosel and the... More

We didn't enter the castle, but climbed up via the path to the south of the castle past the vineyards. Gorgeous views of the Mosel and Cochem from the courtyard at the top. The's a few vending machines at the main gate that are surprisingly reasonable, if you need a drink or icecream.

The castle is a steep climb up paved streets but is well worth it. The castle is in excellent condition, the view over the town and river is magnificent and we enjoyed an unhurried Mosel wine on the cafe terrace.

You gotta go here but my forlorn was that it wan't what is was in 1600-1700s. When restored, the 1800s came to being here .... so .... Exterior: yes you can visualize what the early royalists did to protect themselves .... high hills, high walls, multiple gates. The stonework is amazing to study for its durability. The walls fortification (weapons:... More

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
