Historischer Dorfrundgang durch Kobern

  • Kobern-Gondorf

A more charming liaison of a romantic local walk and authentic history is hardly imaginable. Let yourself be taken on an up to 2-hour journey through time (extended version) from 800 to 1600 AD.

Start on the historic market square. The old half-timbered houses and the Tatzelwurm exude medieval flair right from the start. Stroll through old alleys, past wine yards, the Romanesque bell tower and the oldest half-timbered house in Germany, to name just a few of the 15 highlights along the way. Numbered information signs on site provide easy-to-understand information on facts and figures about the respective objects. It is hard to imagine that Kobern once consisted mainly of three courtyards. The cathedral courtyard, the Carthusian courtyard St. Alban and the abbey courtyard St. Marien significantly shaped the structure of the village. You can arrange the tour of the village very individually: The shortened route through the village (also illuminated at night) can be done in half an hour. If you choose the way up to the bell tower, you will need about 1.5 hours. A walk up to the Niederburg and the Oberburg with the Matthiaskapelle through the picturesque Mühlental (about 2 hours) is rewarded with a sensational view into the Mosel valley. You will learn many interesting details if you book the historical tour of the village or a hike with a guide. In addition, guided tours of the Oberburg and the St. Matthias Chapel are also offered. Our tourist information office will be happy to give you more information. How about a stop at the winegrower or in one of our restaurants? Then it will take a little longer. But then you can enjoy it much longer... You can download the flyer with a detailed route as a PDF file. Parking possibilities along the Lennigstraße or centrally at the Mosel forecourt
