This pretty town is one of the oldest towns in Germany. Why not spend time exploring this old walled town with over 2000 years of history. See the stunning sights such as the 56m tall "Runde Turm" (round tower), the Mariendom (Cathedral of Mary) and the old crane on the Rhine Riverfront.
Cochem, the ‘pearl of the Moselle’, a picturesque town with narrow cobbled streets and twisting alleys and restored half-timbered houses with slate roofs, overlooked by the magnificent Reichsburg Castle. Cochem is the biggest town in the district and the Reichsburg Castle was first documented in 1130. The castle was once an Imperial castle as in 1151 King Konrad III named it his home. Why not visit the castle or enjoy one of the many cafés which offer a wide range of local pastries and cakes.
This historic city is located on the convergence of three mountain ranges and two rivers with the ‘Deutsches Eck’, a colossal monument to Wilhelm I, proudly marking the place where the Rhine & Moselle Rivers meet.
Rüdesheim is a beautiful town which is famous for its narrow streets including the Drosselgasse, it's locally produced wines, shops with hand-made treasures and relaxing cafes.
