This is small hidden gem. As it is off the track it hasn't got the numbers like other castle. Nice walk through the forest until it is found. There is also a shuttle bus to it. Nice surroundings and a little river for children to...More

That castle is the The Imperial Castle in Cochem I think it has another name, but this is what comes up on the website. We didn't get to go to that one so we'll have to go back. 😊
