This beautiful castle atop a steep hill has a spectacular view of the town below. The interior areas were lovely and the guided history of the castle was outstanding.

Highly recommended! You can take the train to Cochem. The station is about ten minutes from the town centre. There is a tourist information and the shuttle bus leaves from one of the bus stands outside (just ask at the tourist information if you need help - they were really friendly). The bunker itself is a five minute drive away. The tour lasted about an hour. I did the German-language tour (and German is not my first language). Your German will need to be good if you do the German language tour as an explanation is needed. I believe there are also English-language tours as well. The only slight criticism is the group size. There were about 28 in my group and we didn't always fit in the same room as the guide which also made it a little difficult to catch everything that was being said. However, this was all in all a minor point and the passion and enthusiasm of the guide was clear and made this a really interesting tour. Cochem is a beautiful town and you could easily make a full-day trip here.

St Martin Kirche

Reviewed By 675RichardD675

We know Patrick Reyntiens very well and he regards this as perhaps one of the best things he has done. He did the Catholic cathedral in Liverpool and the remarkable war memorial window in Coventry cathedral as well. Those were with Sir John Piper and Cochem was done with Graham Jones who did the colour while Patrick Reyntiens did the painting. The church was largely destroyed in the war and then rebuilt in the early 50s. The Reyntiens/Jones windows were done within the last 6 years To understand the windows you have to understand the biblical stories they represent. The detail and clarity is extraordinary and we spent well over an hour looking at them. Unfortunately the church has explanatory leaflets, but only in German. If you want to see the work of one of the great exponents of stained glass of the 20th century, then you should look at these windows. Don't be surprised by some of the humour and some of the ideas which may seem a little inappropriate for a church but in fact are brilliant. Patrick Reyntiens' knowledge of the scriptures means that whet you see is absolutely relevant.

The largest of the medieval gates built in 1332. So great to see such history up close. If you have time it is a must.
