Castle romance and railway nostalgia go hand in hand along the Mosel. What better reason to hop on a train and travel through the Mosel Valley to Cochem. You’ll see the impressive Reichsburg standing high above the old town from a far, looking like something straight out of a fairytale. And it has in fact been used for filming fairytales such as “Die Sterntaler”, The Star Coins (see ARD Mediathek).
A short footpath leads from Cochem railway station to the old town and from there along steep, winding lanes up to the castle, which tops the hill majestically.
