Cruises to Cochem

About Cochem

Surrounded by steep vineyards, overlooked by an imposing castle and with a charming old town filled with half-timbered houses, Cochem is the archetypal German town and one of the prettiest places on the Moselle.

River ships moor in the heart of the town, which is divided by the river. A nearby bridge leads to the waterfront and narrow cobbled streets of the old town, which can easily be explored on foot.

The main attraction is Reichsburg Castle, also called Cochem Imperial Castle. It dates back to the 11th century and is the largest hill castle on the Moselle. Most river cruises offer a tour of the castle as an included shore excursion.

Cochem is also in the heart of the Moselle's wine producing region, known for crisp dry Rieslings. The town has many wine stores and your cruise may also include a tasting.

Why go to Cochem?

Pros:

Towering over the city, Cochem Castle is one of the most prominent castles in Europe

Cons:

Because the castle is located on a hill, the path up is steep and can be dangerous

Bottom Line:

You'll love Cochem if your idea of fun is soaking up the scenery with a glass of Riesling in hand

Currency & Best Way to Get Money?

The currency is the euro. For up-to-date exchange rates, visit www.xe.com. There are several ATMs (geldautomats) in and around the old town, include the Vereinigte Volksbank Raiffeisenbank at 25 Ravenestrasse, close to the tourist information center.

Language?

German is spoken in Cochem.


Cochem Cruise Reviews
The ship docked in a nice area in Koblenz. The coach ride to Cochem was about an hour each way but the scenery was very nice. The guide took us through the town pointing out the local sights. The town is hilly... Read More

Despite the late date, the town was crowded. Nonetheless, the visit to the mustard factory and museum was very interesting and we are still enjoying the mustards we took home.... Read More
