The numerous well-preserved remains of the historic town wall with its old fortifications still bear witness to Cochem's lively past, such as the Endert Gate with the former gatekeeper's dwelling dating from 1332, the defence tower with the Balduin Gate on the Kirchhofmauer-Obergasse and the Burgfrieden Gate with its battlements. Another eye-catcher is the town hall, built in 1739 in Baroque style, on the cosy market square, the "good parlour" with St. Martin's fountain, and the old half-timbered gabled houses covered with Moselle slate in the narrow streets of the old town.
