The town of Cochem

Wanderer beim Conder Himmelstreppchen

"Cheers!" say the people in Cochem as they raise their glasses and toast each other with a glass of wine. This sentiment was also uttered some 2,000 years ago by the Romans when they came here, "Here’s to your well-being!". In fact they liked it so much here that they took these wishes quite literally and stayed. The most delicious legacy left behind by the Romans was wine, which is still cultivated and consumed here with a passion. This comes as no surprise as the sun-drenched, steep slopes produce elegant, crisp wines that are truly unrivalled.

Did wine perhaps also inspire the builders of Cochem Reichsburg, the town’s ancient castle? This could well be possible – with its fanciful towers and battlements it more resembles a flight of fancy from a dream than a castle designed to withstand a siege. Here you can see the medieval world revealed in all its splendour. And when the falconer releases his bird of prey from his fist, eyes aglow with excitement are guaranteed among young and old.

The small town of Cochem forms the centre point of the holiday region by the Moselle between Bremm and Klotten. The majestic Reichsburg dominates the townscape from nearly all perspectives. Its typical holiday atmosphere is conjured up by the small alleyways leading to the medieval market place, the lively Moselle promenade with its cafés where you can linger at your leisure, the pretty yacht harbour and the extremely hospital townsfolk.
