On the last weekend in August Cochem celebrates its own local wine festival renowned as one of the largest and nicest of all Moselle festivals. All along the Moselle river promenade and in Cochem's "best room", the market square, there are celebrations going on. Try noble Riesling wines and effervescent Riesling sparkling wines at one of the numerous wine stands. On the two stages there are many bands and show bands for first class entertainment. And of course there are all types of food to choose from. The highlight is on Sunday. At 2 pm the grand parade starts to roll down the streets and lanes of the centre of Cochem. At 10 pm another spectacular highlight is the fireworks display. The fireworks are ignited alternately from the castle and the banks of the river Moselle and indulge guests in a spectacular explosion of colour and light.
