Cochem is a little town located on the lower reaches of the River Mosel and also a renowned wine region. The most famous is, of course, the Moselle Rieslings.

Reichsburg castle which is a landmark of Cochem and of the region is over a thousand years old. Well, the original building was built around a year of 1000, but it was destroyed during the French siege in 1689. From 1868 to 1877 it was completely reconstructed and since then it is the most visited monument in the valley of the River Mosel. Reichsburg castle is located about 50 km from the city of Koblenz.

    June 10, 2011 I was with vantage travel tour. Our tour of the castle and the Moselle Rieslings wine was the best that I have ever tasted. I am from New York, USA. Believe me I will buy your wine and think I was in heaven. We saw the castle from our river boat, how beautiful can this world be. Thank you for a little of heaven.
