Our second stop over Easter Weekend was the historical, medieval town called Cochem. Cochem is situated in the Moselle Valley, know for it’s beautiful landscapes, forests and vineyards. We spent two gorgeous spring days in this beautiful town, drinking local riesling wine, walking down the lively Moselle Promenade with many restaurants and wine bars, exploring the town’s narrow streets and eating some ice cream. The friendly hospitality of the locals gives this town a relaxed holiday atmosphere, and that’s exactly what we are looking for when travelling.
Liam drove his scooter down the Moselle Promenade every day and of course we had to stop at almost every play park. That’s one of the things that I love about Germany, there’s always a kids play park nearby and normally at the most beautiful locations. So Liam had a blast playing while Sidney and I could enjoy the view of the surroundings and the people haha I love watching people. It’s a hikers and camping paradise, I also stopped counting the amount of people on bikes driving between the villages.
What makes this town unique is the The Reichsburg Castle. It’s located above the town surrounded by vineyards, and it’s the first thing you see when arriving in Cochem. After walking up the very steep path to the castle (it took us a while) you will enjoy the endless views of the romantic Moselle Valley. You can also take a guided tour of the castle, but we decided that going to the restaurant in the castle, ordering some wine for us and another ice cream for Liam sounded much more fun!
Thank you so much for reading!
Lots of Love
