  • This castle was fully restored between 1868 - 1879 as a family home and your tour takes you through 7 of the 50 rooms. From the detailed word work of the furniture to the delft tile fireplaces you get...  more »
  • The Castle can't help unfortunately but a Christmas market in the courtyard should wait not on hours, forcing a leadership. One could have made in any corner of the beautiful castle the theatre to the birth of Christ. So everyone could see the theatre wanted to be stay there can. But on this idea, the Lords did not and so the children and old people with AIDS must make is in a Menschenschlage whether they want to or not. The largest nerve was then also that the Castle coffee to was that everyone the mulled wine, which by the way was the worst in the entire Moselle to drink. The single seats were not decorated at all and so we went pretty cold down again. Gets the next spectacle of me all cases no entrance fee which may help with security not the children's cancer aid. And when but 10% should fall, the organizer can ask yourself times whether this dictatorship in our age is still adequate. And I hope that they slowly wake up and bring better over this beautiful walls of the population at large.

  • Reichsburg castle itself is very nice, and the leadership is ill. We had to wait for almost an hour until our leadership finally began, it said we should be at 12:00 local. In the end, the Group was much too large sodas, you the rooms not good could watch. The woman who has made the leadership has declared almost nothing to the Castle. There was not anyone who has lived on the Imperial Castle, or similar information. It ran only from room to room and got very very barely explained what it is for a space and at a room was declared still where'd the establishment.

  • If you only have time for one castle and you want the fully furnished step back in time experience with a tour this is it! You can also eat or grab a drink as well which is a cool thing to say you've done!
  • Love this castle. Tours are every 40 minutes. Absolutely beautiful!
  • Wonderful castle and a wonderful view from the balcony. However, we saw only a small, small part of it in the 40 minute tour (6€ per person at the time), and then you are escorted outside. No wandering, no exploration...which was a little sad ☺
  • Beautiful castle with guidance inside. The children had a very nice time!
  • A must see if you are in Cochem. Very nice castle, with great views on the river and city. You need to climb some stairs and heights so be prepared. Good tour and nice people. Good facilities.
