  • The castle is beautiful and well kept, the tour guide very helpful. Almost no way of reaching the castle by car and the climbing can be hard for children and elders  more »
  • The castle is well worth a visit and the leadership has been very nice. Photos may be made in the outdoor and indoor area. However, you should take up with the shuttle from the city to the Castle.

  • It is worth sticking the hike to climb and visit the Castle. Visits are guided but only in German or English. Admission is € 6. You must pay in cash, the card minimum payment is € 25. The visit lasts about 40' is not heavy. The Castle retains much of the original furniture and the Guide does much stress that does not touch anything. The rooms are beautiful and very well-kept. The best are the views that there is Cochem and the Marriott River, spectacular!

  • Beautiful well maintained Castle. Well worth spending €6. Keep in mind you can only see the castle with a guided tour.
  • Felt like a princess :D 👑👗 and the guide over there had the ability to speak in so many different languages and he was so nice to everyone .. it was a really nice tour !
  • Beautiful Castle and a beautiful city as well. The tour to the castle can be a little to fast but it's worth taking it. The food at the cafe was delicious.
  • Such a beautiful castle with an amazing guided tour! The history in this place was something to experience. It takes you back to a time long past.
  • We hit this place upon our bicycle tour July 2010. We went down the Mosel valley from Trier, heading for Koblenz. A wonderful ride. We have seen this castle long in advance... Good to see an old historical place.
