When Is the Best Time
March - November
Best to visit when the weather is warm to experience the atmosphere in the streets.
This city seems to always have people walking around during the summer months no matter what day of the week it is.
Where and Tips
Reichsburg Castle is a reconstructed renaissance castle and is rested on a hill side above the city of Cochem, Germany. Multiple shops and cafes line the streets overlooking the Mosel river. The castle is open for tours from March till November with hours of 9 am until 5 pm. They have tours in several languages. Times depend on group size.
We visited in the summer on a weekend and the streets were packed with shoppers, vendors and street performers. We ate on the balcony of a pizzeria over looking the river and crowds. We then walked the cobble stones streets eating our ice cream cones. The city offers bike rentals and boat cruises along the river. If you want to experience Germany, this city and castle is a must visit. Great for the entire family.
