Cochem is a beautiful old city situated on the northern portion of the Mosel River.

It has a fully restored castle which dominates the terrrain. The castle is open for tours, except in the winter months.

Depending on your age group/student status you can expect to pay approximately 3 Euro for a tour

Cochem also has a nice shopping area which is cobbled. There are plenty of cafes, restaurants and bakeries to choose from.

Good Fortune!

If you hit all the right spots, you can bring yourself a bit of luck.

    Nice overview! Cochem and the Mosel River are very appealing.

    Hi, this was my first castle to ever visit. I thought it was absolutely great, and was very surprised after my visit to find out how fortunate I was, to be able to take pictures inside of it, as not able to do so in most other castles. 09/04/2006.
