Cochem is the perfect base for getting to know different
areas, towns and people.
Idyllic wine-growing villages
and well-know wine centres are nearby. The Roman
imperial city of Trier is packed with fascinating
sights, and stands at the gateway to Luxembourg with its
rich store of art treasures. And not far away is Koblenz,
where the Mosel meets the Rhine.

of attractive destinations for walkers, and cycling is
also popular, with near-level cycle paths leading along
the river. Return to your accommodation by cyclists´
shuttle bus, train or boat.
