    The Imperial Castle Cochem is a castle in the Rhineland-Palatinate town of Cochem on the Moselle. It is their landmark and stands on a highly visible mountain cone 154 m above sea level. NHN (entrance) above the city. As a summit castle she belongs to the type of mountain castles.
    The plant, which served as a customs castle in the Middle Ages, was probably built around 1100 or in the first half of the 12th century, according to the results of current castle research. After being destroyed in the 17th century, it was rebuilt by the Berlin merchant and later Secretary of Commerce Louis Fréderic Jacques Ravené in the years 1868-77, according to the taste of the castle romance. Burg Cochem is thus a good example of a building designed in neo-Gothic style during the time of historicism. According to the monument protection law of Rhineland-Palatinate, it is a protected cultural monument and registered in the state's monument list. In addition, the plant is a protected cultural property according to the Hague Convention and marked with the blue-white protection mark.

    It's really nice to enjoy the view from the castle down to the old town of Cochem.
    There are also many more beautiful views to enjoy from up there.

    Without castle it probably does not go in Cochem; It's just a part of it and let's be honest, it's already splendid from afar - very majestic

    In good weather you can enjoy a fantastic view of Cochem and the Mosel valley. There is also a panoramic terrace with coffee cakes and 🍦 ice .. The increase by bike was worth it.
