From Cochem to Trier by car. Auto-Bahn or Mosel route?

After a night in Cochem we are heading to Trier by car. What do you think?

Take the A1 saving time and energy?

Go by the Mosel´s edge? Worth it? Is that path so beautiful (and different) as the northern?

We will have already covered that northern Mosel with all its main attractions (Boppard, Burg Eltz, Münstermaifeld, Wierschem...) during two days before...

So, is it really worthwhile to keep by the edge of the river till Trier in order to experience something really different or should we save time and take the A1 straight to Trier?

Thanks.

Been a regular visitor to Cochem since 1975 and I love the roads along the Mosel, just makes the rest of the journey (from the UK) seem worthwhile. Any time of the year it is just lovely.

Just did it!

Till Bernkastel-Kues, where we did a brake for a coffee and then headed to Trier by the Auto-Bahn. Terrific landscapes.

Thank you so much everybody!

I will be making the reverse trip this June ( Trier - Koblenz) I plan to visit Burg Eltz in the afternoon.

Any recommendations for a great stop in the morning along the way? Bernkastel-Kues? Traben-trarbach?

I will have 4 children who would love to see a second castle that morning.

Thanks

Cochem castle is the easiest to visit and most complete one along that stretch of the Mosel. Walk up from the river bank through the main square, lovely shops and interesting buildings to see on the way, come back down via the chapel route.
