  • 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.
