Vacation and Recreation
Winery tours, wine seminars, and wine-tastings are evidence of the popularity of the Cochem area. Along with the traditional Wine Festivals there are also many medieval-style festivals. Castle tours, historical city tours und trips with the "Moselle Wine Express" are also offered. Evenings offer opportunities for dancing and local entertainment. Throughout the year there are many events in the resort town of Cochem. The season begins with the Easter Market two weeks before Easter. It continues with the Moselle Wine Week in mid-June. Over 300 wines are offered for sampling at twelve wine stands.
On the first weekend in August the Cochem castle invites "ladies and gentlemen, young and old, rich and poor" to the Castle Festival. The highlight of the festivities is the annual Hometown and Wine Festival with its firework show. The festival takes place the last weekend in August. The year's new wine can be sampled at the New Wine Festival at the beginning of November. The Christmas Market awakens the Christmas spirit. The Market also ends the annual schedule of events.
