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. Of course, meat features on the menu, but vegetarians are not forgotten as a meatless version of the meal is available. Continue reading “Knight’s Meal at Reichsburg, Cochem”
An interesting little article about Cochem from the blog Kiddo In Awe.
Who would’ve ever thought that besides all those big wonderful cities in Germany, small cities like Cochem are a real miracle. A little miracle alongside the river Mosel.
I remember this day as yesterday~ another one of those spontaneous trip with people I barely know at the time. All I can say is that traveling makes you grow closer to human beings.
While chilling in the shades on a hot dazzling summer day, the view around you just consumes you. The blue vivid skies as you lie on the green grass, surrounded by natures grace. As harmonious as life can get, Cochem is worth a visit.
The Reichsburg Castle in Cochem is a castle built on a rock of approximately 100m above the city. In this castle tours are given in multiple languages. Besides the normal tours, there are also tours made specially for kids.

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.

This idyllic town has some of the best examples of “fachwerk” (timber framed) buildings in the region and arguably in Germany, all below the Reichsburg fortress that stands guard over the strategic bend in the river. The place is very popular with tourists from all over, and as such there are plenty of good bars, restaurants and cafés to rest your weary feet after a long day exploring all this exceptional place has to offer. Oh, and don’t forget to try the Mosel wine ice cream I told you about before!
