Cochem Old Town: Historical Sights on the Moselle River

If you want to explore Cochem’s old town with all its historical sights, you should bring some time with you. On the Moselle promenade is the Bockbrunnen – a “Cochemer Stückelchen”, which ironically tells of the everyday life of the people of Cochem. Also absolutely worth seeing is the baroque-style town hall built in 1739 on the market square and the half-timbered houses with typical Moselle slate that nestle in the narrow streets of the old town. But the absolute highlight of a trip to Cochem is surely a visit to Reichsburg Castle, which towers high above Cochem. The most beautiful way to climb up is via the “Tummelchen”, the old burial mound built on the remains of the town wall.
