  The 2nd castle court of reichsburg Cochem
by globetrott

The oldest parts of the castle date back to the year 1000 and the castle had quite an interesting history of various owners and was finally burned down by the french troops in 1688. The castle was completely destroyed and stayed just a ruin for almost 200 years until Louis Ravene bought it in 1868 and had it rebuilt to be used as a summercastle for his family.
On my picture you see the 2nd court of the Reichsburg Cochem, with a big square and some interesting buildings, similar to a market-square in a small village with a big well in the centre.

Directions: This part of the castle is in the 2nd court and you will get there at the beginning of the guided tour through the castle.
