  • Great view of the oude burg/Castle. Detailed carvings, beautiful ornamented ceiling, beautiful bronze art work and a guide who knows his history! Neat shop and cafeteria with a terrace where one blown down by the panorama of the Moselle Valley at the foot of the rock. In Cochem or surrounding areas? Visit certainly the Reichsburg Castle and also his city!

  • Very nice walking tour with a German, very knowledgeable, nice lady. We got information at Swedish on a piece of paper when they did not have access to an English guide. There was information on the many different languages that were handed out. The tour was nice although I did not understand everything in German.

  • The castle is beautifully built and furnished in old dawn. Great views from the wooden balcony that hangs above a cliff.

  • 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.
