Landscape, people, way of life
Koblenz (30 km)
In the triangle of Rhine and Moselle, the city of Koblenz has fascinated its visitors for more than two millennia. People from all over the world meet in the midst of narrow alleys, romantic corners and inviting squares. The architectural evidence of an impressive history is an expression of the eventful history of the city from Roman times to the present day. The many taverns and restaurants in the old wine-growing town promise roaring celebrations and cheerful hours.
Particularly worth seeing are the Ehrenbreitstein fortress, the Deutsches Eck and various museums such as the Koblenz Railway Museum. A little up the Rhine lies Stolzenfels Castle, a worthwhile sight.
With its unique landscape and hospitable people, Koblenz provided a worthy setting for the Federal Horticultural Show 2011.
Cochem (30 km)
The city of Cochem with its imperial castle and a number of medieval buildings is always worth a visit.
The Cochem chairlift takes you to the "Pinnerkreuz", a hill with a beautiful view of the Moselle valley, the imperial castle of Cochem and the town of Cochem. At the top there is a terrace café. Hiking trails lead from here to the surrounding area, to the fairytale forest and to the game park. The Historische Senfmühle Cochem on the opposite bank is one of the oldest mustard mills in Europe.
