Guesthouse in Cochem

We were walking through Cochem and spotted this strange little glass box built into the wall of a building on the side of a street. As you can see, it is a rather cute little doll’s house style bedroom. Upon closer inspection, I realised it was a novel advertisement for the Zum Fröhlichen Weinberg, a guest house on Schlaufstraße 11 – 13.

Usually, I would not say too much about any guesthouse I have not stayed in, but their “advert” stood out to me as being quite unusual so I decided to investigate further. Their website is in German, but it does explain that they have a variety of room types. All rooms have private bathrooms, whilst some also have private balconies, patios or kitchenettes. A single room and a couple of larger apartments are also available. All rooms look bright and cheery from the photographs. Oh, and they also have garage space available for a small charge, useful given Cochem gets very busy in summer.

Further delving on the internet also revealed that a mother and daughter team run the place. Apparently mum speaks very little English but daughter speaks it quite well. So it should not be too challenging for non-German speaking visitors.

The place has great reviews on Tripadvisor which in my eyes is usually a good thing.
