About Cruising to 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 to Germany may also include a tasting.
