Wine and holiday town on the Moselle

Cochem The castle high above the town, Copyright Verkehrsamt Cochem
The old quarter is dominated by the late-Gothic imperial castle and is dotted with medieval squares and lovingly restored timber-framed houses – architectural gems typical of the Moselle region. But it is not only the fairytale buildings in and around Cochem that remind visitors of its 2,000-year legacy; the town's folk tales and wine traditions are also kept very much alive.
