  • The interior tour was informative and fun.We attended after dark and I feel a daytime tour would have enhanced the experience. Either would be worthwhile.

  • It’s somehow a magical town, full of narrow streets and up the hill this amazing castle. You can a guided tour, it’s quite quick and the castle inside is not that big but you can notice how passionate the guide is. The view is amazing form the castle which you can easily reach walking or by car. I went in winter and need to come back in summer.
  • Very picturesque and magnificent castle that sits like the crown of Cochem city. I completely loved the architecture here. It takes a 15-20 minute walk from the city to reach to the castle from where the view of the river and the valley is just breathe taking. You get stunning views of the vineyards and the city from the balcony. The castle is open for public with the English guided tours on demand.
  • This place is breathtaking from the moment you first see it from afar, from the town or from the street that takes you there through the mountains. The views of the river and the town from the castle are amazing and the inside of the castle is beautiful as well! The tour guide is awesome too! Great experience!
  • Beautiful architecture and stunning location. Is a nice steep walk to get there but beautiful views and an epic building make it worth while. Just a shame the heavens opened when we got to the top! A very large queue for the restaurant... be prepared to wait!
  • Beautiful castle and interesting guided tour. Just be aware it is so stiff before you get to the top of the hill and the path is not paved all the way… hard to move with strollers
