On entering the largest room of the castle, we feel a bit impressed but of course the Water Music of Händel that accompanies our entry does help that awe along.
You will find fine paintings here from the school of Titian and a copy of Rubens' painting the kidnapping of the Sabine Virgins. The fireplace (5th photo) has two lions on either side with closed helmets. They look like frogs :-)

Address: Schlossstr 36, 56812 Cochem
Directions: Take a shuttle bus from the parking lot near the train station or do the steep climb (about 15 minutes) on foot. If by car: drive west along the Mosel, then turn right into Schlossstrasse. But beware: only about 20 places for parking!
