Sights

Sehenswertes - MarktplatzWorth seeing are the remains of the old town wall, for example the "Endert gate Tower" with its adjoining Guard House dating back to 1332, the fortified tower and "Balduin's gate" near the churchyard wall in the "Obergasse", the "Burgfrieden gate" and gangway, the beautiful baroque styled town hall built in 1739, the market-place with its "Martin's Fountain" and the old gabled houses built on steep, narrow alleys.

Old winding stone steps lead from the market-place up to the top of the "Klosterberg". At the crest you will see the old Capuchin monastery, which was built in 1630 and dissolved in 1802. Since then it has stood empty. It is now converted into a cultural centre. The steep, up-hill walk to see Cochem Castle is well worth the effort. This castle was built around the year 1000, destroyed in 1689 and rebuilt between 1874 and 1877.
