Travel Tips for Cochem

Carnival

by MikeAtSea

Every year certain parts of Germany gather to celebrate a festivity called Carnival, sometime during the month of February. The celebrations are with fun processions through the villages and towns where everyone is dressed up in different costumes. The tradition goes back to medieval times when the winter ghosts were chased away to make way to sunny and warm weather for a successful harvest in the coming year.

The castle tour 15: the witch's tower

by ATLC

On the outside walls you can see the different styles of restoration that has gone on. In the 19th century they did not restore to the same exact features and stone masoning so you can see that clearly. These days it would be restored to the exact image of 1689. Then, the whole castle was plastered and brighly painted as we saw in the first tip of St. Christoffel.

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!

Burg Bischofstein - 25km downstream from Cochem

by globetrott

Burg Bischofstein is a nice castle high above the left bank of the river Mosel / Moselle, about 25km downstream from Cochem.
The castle dates back to the 13th century and was rebuilt at the beginning of the 20th century by a rich banker from Darmstadt. Today it is in private posession and may not be visited. It belongs to The "Fichte Gymnasium" , a school in Krefeld and is used by the pupils on a regular basis.

Alte TorschÀnke

by ATLC

The old gate-guesthouse is from 1625 and considered to be the most important woodwork houses in the city. It was spared the fire that destroyed most of the city in 1689.
These days it seems it isn't fire that endangers the buildings. Although flooding happened through all centuries, it was in the 20th century the brought the highest floods. You can see that on the side of the building. 1993 was the highest (photo 3).

Huge fireplaces

by sim1


Inside the castle you can see quite a few beautiful fireplaces, like this one. The guide that was showing us around in the castle was very friendly and seemed to enjoy the private tour just as much as we did. She probably had a bit more time to explain about the castle and show its small 'secrets'.

Like any romantic old castle this one of course had its secrets doors. It's quite hard to spot them if you don't know where to look for them though!
