  View over Cochem
by sim1

While I was waiting for the guided tour to start, it was nice just to hang lazy over the castle walls and enjoy the views over the river Mosel. You have a nice view over the city of Cochem from here, and of course on the river Mosel. In the old days they didn't only enjoy the view from here, they also made money of the river.

In the first half of the 14th century, archbishop Balduin of Trier installed a chain below the castle to form a removable toll barrier across the river. Seems like he was a clever business man ;-)
