Cochem – anything but mundane!

When you think of Cochem as a holiday destination, what comes to mind is beautiful landscapes, romantic wine villages, a unique river valley and the wonderful town of Cochem. The stretch of the Moselle meandering past the Calmont—a hill that is home to the steepest vineyards in Europe—the ruins of Metternich Castle in Beilstein, the Reichsburg Castle in Cochem, the ruins of Coraidelstein Castle in Klotten and Eltz Castle in Moselkern is considered one of the most beautiful river landscapes in the world.

You can hike endless trails and cycle along the riverbanks, enjoying breathtaking views of the picturesque landscape rich in natural beauty and cultural monuments.

Hiking tours in Cochem

Scenic hiking trails snake across the holiday region of Cochem, revealing one spectacle after another: they take you past rugged cliffs, some of them towering high above the river, through fertile vineyards, to vantage points affording marvellous panoramas, and finally to the many wine villages with their quaint wine taverns.

Hiking the Moselsteig, a long-distance trail along the Moselle, is a unique experience for any seasoned hiker: all of 365 kilometres, it is divided into 24 segments that stretch from Perl to Koblenz, with Cochem nicely nestled on segments 18 and 19.

The new 16-kilometre Cochemer Ritterrunde, declared a premium trail by the Deutsches Wanderinstitut e.V., affords captivating views and incomparable rolling countryside. A variety of leisure activities, including water sports, tennis, angling, golf, music and cultural events, and countless wine festivals will round off any holiday in this region.

About Cochem

Cochem Hometown and Wine Festival

Cochem celebrates its Hometown and Wine Festival, one of the largest and most beautiful festivals on the Moselle, on the last weekend of August. The Moselle promenade and market square simply teem with visitors enjoying the festive atmosphere and the fine Riesling and sparkling Riesling wines at the numerous wine stalls.
Several bands and showbands performing on two stages provide excellent entertainment. And needless to say, the cuisine is a delight. The festival culminates in a huge parade at 2 p.m. and a spectacular firework display at 10 p.m. on Sunday.
