Attractions

Cochem Imperial Castle

The steep, up-hill walk to see Cochem Castle is well worth the effort. It was built around the year 1000, destroyed in 1689 and rebuilt between 1874 and 1877.


Winneburg Castle Ruin

After being destroyed in 1689, during the nine-year war, this castle was never restored and remains in ruins to this day.


Chairlift to the Pinnerkreuz Mountain

From the top of Pinnerkreuz Mountian, you may enjoy the very best view of the castle, the Mosel-valley and its surroundings. You can take several hiking paths or spend some time in the restaurant with a perfect view of the castle. The chairlift is operated between Easter and mid-November.
