  Reichsburg Cochem, Louis Ravené

The Reichsburg was destroyed by the French in 1689, like many castles along the Mosel. This was to protect the French interests along the border of France, under the French king Louis XIV. Nearly 200 years later, in 1869, a citizen of Berlin, Louis Ravené, bought the castle and restored it in neo-gothic style. The interior was adapted to the living comfort of that time. Even toilets were installed! Since 1978 the city of Cochem has ownership of the castle.

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!
