Why not visit Cochem in the Mosel

Cochem, the charming pearl of the Mosel and romantic wine town, forms a glimmering centre point in the Mosel holiday region.  proudly enthroned above Cochem on mighty cliffs, you will find the venerable Cochem Castle (built circa 1,000 AD) with its unequalled layout, bay windows and battlements. Rising over 100 metres above the Mosel, it is regarded as the highest hill fortress along the river. The Mosel Valley is a beautiful region in Germany.  Full of vineyards, delicious Riesling wine, lovely medieval villages, & wonderful people.
