Also worth a visit are the leisure centre in Cond, the nearby wildlife- and leisure park Klotten, and the leisure and golf resort Ediger-Eiler up in the Eifel heights.

Offers on site

Cochem Castle

This imperial castle has a thousand-year history and is a popular attraction in the holiday town of Cochem. Regardless of what direction you approach the town from, you will see the castle, which sits majestically on a steep hilltop, more than 100 metres above the Moselle. The valley is not the only place from which can get an overwhelming view; you are highly recommended to take a look at the interior, too, for example the great hall, trophy room and cabinet room. A guided tour takes approximately 40 minutes.

Chairlift to the Pinnerkreuz

Ride on the chairlift up to one of the most attractive viewing points above Cochem, the Pinnerkreuz. In addition to the open double chairs, gondolas are also available which can be closed depending on weather conditions.

Tip: You can also walk up to the viewing point through vineyards. A hiking route starting behind the railway station in Cochem leads up Pinnerberg mountain.

Hiring bicycles

Bicycles can be hired directly at the KD Ticket Office. The Moselle Cycle Route is ideal for cycling on both sides of the river and, because of the numerous bridges, enables you to plan tours of various lengths. We will be pleased to provide you with suggestions on site.
