COCHEM AND AROUND – DECEMBER 2005
I’ll deal first with the Mosel, and then with the tag from Sally and Isabella!
On Sunday, we took the regional train to Trier, but stop in Cochem, The Pearl of the Mosel, well ahead of the end of the line. Cochem, the capital of the district Cochem-Sehl, is a very nice village with roughly 5000 inhabitants. Located in the most romantic part of the Mosel Valley, where the river curves between two hiking paradises - Eifel and Hunsrück, it is also a wonderful place to start your Mosel experience!
"MOSELBRÜCKE - Cochem is first mentioned in a document of the Abbey of Prüm dated December 20, 866. On the other side of the Mosel is the village of Cond, and the vineyards"
"MOSELPROMENADE - Ladies walking along the Promenade, though the other flowers were already gone"
"ALTSTADT - The remains of the old town wall are quite interesting, and this fortified tower looks still in good shape"
"REICHSBURG CASTLE - Cochem Castle, dating from 1051, represents a landmark of the city and of the region. Pictures at different hours and from different perspectives show the beauty of the building"
"CRUISING THE MOSEL"
"MISSING THE GRAPES"
"MARKTPLATZ - The market-place is a wonderful place, with Martin's Fountain, the beautiful baroque town hall and the old houses"
After Cochem and the cruise, we took the train and went a bit further up the river to Bullay.
"BULLAY - It was late, and the ducks were coming back home..."
