Cochem is a lovely town with many bars and tourist shops, but still with a feel of times gone by. Enjoyable walking around, then going and sitting by the river, watching the boats. Plenty of cafes if it were to rain,

Visited Cochem as part of a river cruise and was impressed by the old square and surrounding buildings. Many wine shops, bars and restaurants. Stop and people watch over a cool glass of white wine.

Cochem is lovely and their town square is also worthy of the same accolade. Centrally located and surrounded by excellent wine shops it's definitely worth a look round!

We enjoy exploring small towns in Europe. Since we arrived right before the beginning of the tourist season it made the touring even more enjoyable. The town is small and can be leisurely explored in less than 2 hours.
