Wedding in Cochem
Couples in this area like to hold the wedding ceremony in Reichsburg.
On the way to Reichsburg Mimi and I saw a new couple and their families walk down slowly to the city center. Their smile is so sincere and pretty. We wished them good luck (Viel Glueck).
** Mimi said Germans like to marry on Saturdays. I think I was lucky to see them :-) **
The castle tour 13: inner court
The castle has about 50 rooms of which you'll have seen 7 once you come out again. It is very expensive to maintain the castle and especially the grounds. The castle is built on rock and the stone deteriorates and falls apart. There is supportive concrete that alone cost about 1.5 million euro.
Looking around it isn't much of an inner court really, because most of it is open. You can discover your route through the castle. Photo 1, the ivy coloured wall behind which is the dining room. Behind the windows of photo 4 is the room with the mermaid lamp.
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!
Kröv - home of the famous "Nacktarsch"
Kröv / Kroev is a lovely village in the Mosel-valley, that nobody - including me - would mention If there would not be a very special , great wine ! It tastes simply great, despite it's strange name :
Nacktarsch - it will not be possible to translate this name into English, without parts beeing automatically removed...
n@cked @ss is the name in English and of course it is a registered wine-trademark and may be used ONLY by vinters in Kröv !!

The Mosel Bridge
A bridge connects the sunny Northern side of Cochem with the shady Southern Side. On both sides historical buildings can be found and the bridge can be crossed on foot or by car offering beautiful views of the Mosel River.
The large livingroom of the castle in Cochem
This room used to be the livingroom of the family of Louis Ravene, whenever they came to Cochem in order to spend their summer there. Somehow such a palace is much too beautiful to be used just as a summer-residence for a few weeks every year, but it obviously was a dream-come-true to posess such a beautiful castle for him.
In this room I like especially the fine stucco-works on the ceiling and the great construction with the columns and the niches with windows facing the Mosel - valley
