Nativity Play In Reichsburg Cochem


If you are looking for something really “Christmassy” in December, this event could be what you are looking for. It is a live nativity play in the courtyards of the beautiful Reichsburg castle in Cochem, which is well worth a visit in its own right and Cochem is a lively and interesting town too.

The play is conducted in German, but I attended a similar one in another part of Germany and it really did have a magical feel for both children and adults alike. At the end there will be Christmas market stalls selling seasonal foods and other bits and bobs.

  1. I can thoroughly recommend this – My friends and I followed the play around the castle two years ago. As mentioned the dialogue is of course in German, but it is easy to understand what’s going on, so long as you know the Christmas story in the Bible. At the end they sing a Christmas carol and collect money for local sick children. My only caveat is to warn less able people it is very, very steep to actually get to the castle and to walk around.
