  • We visited the mill on a very hot day and were a bit disappointed. The buildings look what scruffy. You can taste the mustard itself or with spoons or a sausage to buy with a mustard of choice. The sausage is tasty, but would still taste better with a sandwich there. You get a generous helping of mustard. Personally, we prefer mustard a lot stronger, but tastes differ. In the shop you can buy all kinds of mustard products, but that we found quite pricey.

  • Interesting tour of the mustard production process on site. The guide was enthusiastic about their product and equipment. The tour was not more than one room in which the mill stone and mostervat, but the information definitely worthwhile. Parking in the immediate vicinity is tricky. It is more convenient to park at the parking garage near and then to run.

  • This is promoted as a museum with a history of milling and preparing a variety of mustards but it is really just a small shop that also provides some demonstrations of the process. Some connection is claimed to operations dating back into the early 1800s. About 8 or 9 variations of mustards are offered and each can be sampled before buying. Other mustard related condiments are also available. The milling operations go on in the back and appear to be open to the public at only specific times. Here one can purchase the regional speciality Roter Weinberg Pfirsich Likör, a intensely sweet but robustly flavored red peach liquor. It can be found in other shops in Cochem as well.
  • Interesting little museum and a fantastic selection of mustards. Be sure not to leave without taking some of their good organic mustard home with you.
  • It was very interesting. I was able to get some real things about mustard. The team there is super. We had lots of fun. Also the sausages with mustard is recommended. Have purchased a lot for home 🤗
