The impressive Reichsburg medieval fortress in Cochem has several activities over the year, one of the most popular being the Knight’s Meal.
As the name suggests, you are served medieval style food by people in costume from the period, and the entertainment also harks from that era.

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.
