Pig on the Wall?

by Riverview

Where did you see the pig on the wall? Is it a bar or restaurant?

Re: Pig on the Wall?

by Kathrin_E

There are more than 3,700,000 photos on VT. Could you post the link to the photo, or to the page where you found it? Ditto for your other question. That would make finding the photos and having a look at it a lot easier for us.

P.S. Welcome to VT community!

I saw the photo of the pig on the wall in the Cochem Travel Guide. I'll be visiting there in May.I'll e-mail the person who took the picture to find out where it was taken. I enjoyed your travel page. We have visited Wales and enjoyed Cardiff and the entire coast. I too am a gardener so we drove to visit the garden at Portmerion. Beautiful country. I'm surprised that it doesn't get a lot of "tourist press".

Travel Tips for Cochem

Kirner Pils.

by Jerelis

Let’s make no secret of it. We both like a nice cold glass of beer. Being abroad is always a challenge to find a beer we like, which reflects our taste of having a beer. In Germany it was sometimes rather difficult. We found out that there are quite some local beers, only known in that particular area. But anyway, we did like the Kirner Pils.

The history of the Kirner family dates back to the 15th century. The first link to a brewery is made in the 17th century when they opened the doors in the little village of Kirn. The beer became rather popular and ever since 1798 it´s even available on a large scale. Just try it, it´s good!

The castle tour 9: Louis Ravené


The Reichsburg was destroyed by the French in 1689, like many castles along the Mosel. This was to protect the French interests along the border of France, under the French king Louis XIV. Nearly 200 years later, in 1869, a citizen of Berlin, Louis Ravené, bought the castle and restored it in neo-gothic style. The interior was adapted to the living comfort of that time. Even toilets were installed! Since 1978 the city of Cochem has ownership of the castle.

Address: Schlossstr 36, 56812 Cochem
Directions: Take a shuttle bus from the parking lot near the train station or do the steep climb (about 15 minutes) on foot. If by car: drive west along the Mosel, then turn right into Schlossstrasse. But beware: only about 20 places for parking!

Beilstein - 10 km upstream

by globetrott

The lovely, small village of Beilstein is just about 10km upstream the river Mosel / Moselle and most ships leaving in Cochem will also land there. There is NO trainstation in Beilstein, but a bus-connection to Cochem.
Beilstein is in my opinion one of the most beautiful of the small villages along the river Mosel / Moselle.
You may see lovely halftimbered houses, the old castle-ruins of castle Metternich and the old monastery.
Beilstein is also called "Dornröschen an der Mosel". For more infos and pics about Beilstein - please click on my link below !

The 2nd castle-court

by globetrott

The oldest parts of the castle date back to the year 1000 and the castle had quite an interesting history of various owners and was finally burned down by the french troops in 1688. The castle was completely destroyed and stayed just a ruin for almost 200 years until Louis Ravene bought it in 1868 and had it rebuilt to be used as a summercastle for his family.
On my picture you see the 2nd court of the Reichsburg Cochem, with a big square and some interesting buildings, similar to a market-square in a small village with a big well in the centre.

The history of Cochem Castle

by sim1

The guided tour is almost starting, but before we go in I would like to tell you a little bit about its history:

Cochem Castle was built around the year 1000 by count palatine Ezzo. The first time that the castle was mentioned in a document was about 50 years later, in 1051. The document tells about Ezzo's daughter (former queen of Poland) giving the castle to her nephew count palatine Henry I.

In 1151 the castle became an imperial castle, after king Konrad III occupied the castle with troups.

In 1294, king Adolf of Nassau pawned the castle and the city of Cochem and lots of the surrounding properties, to pay for his coronation as German emperor. And the castle changed hands again due to this.

Under the reign of Archbishop Balduin (1307-1354) the old castle was enlarged and fortified.

When the troupes of king Louis XIV (the Sun King) invaded the Rhine and Moselle area the history of Cochem and its castle took a bad turn. The castle was occupied in 1688. May 19 th of 1689 was a black day in the history of the castle. The French troupes put the castle on fire, undermined it and blew it up. The castle was left in ruins and the town of Cochem was almost completely destroyed.
