Wandering in Cochem

August 14th · 6 Comments

After a day where we saw more castles that we could shake a stick at, we went to Cochem, which sits at the foot of Reichsburg. However, we wouldn’t be visiting it because we were tired of castles… but we did enjoy a day of rest and relaxation in the fair city of Cochem.

The way we saw it, we burned a lot of calories the day before so we needed to replenish them. We went ot the TI and took advantage of their locks for our gear. Then we wandered around the city for a bit, checking out the little shops and their knick-knacks, then stopped at one of the three cafes near the TI (can’t remember the name unfortunately).

Martha had a pork roast with some wine:

While I enjoyed a beef kabob with some Frankiskaner:

When Martha’s plate came out, she wasn’t expected quite so much food…

After we ate, we thought it would be fun to take a ride up the Cochemer Sesselbahn up the side of the mountain that looks over Cochem (€4.30 one way, €5.80 round-trip):

We had an hour or so to kill before we would need to head back to catch our ride to Stuttgart so what better way the round out a city than to enjoy its sweets? 🙂

    I don’t about you, but that meal looks sooooo good! Even more so that I can’t buy or make any pita pockets here!

    We thought about walking up the hill, we enjoy hiking and everything, but I think we were tired from lugging around all of your luggage the past week. The ride up was nice but I think you appreciate the view less if you didn’t work for it. 🙂

    It was gorgeous and the ice cream was delicious, we probably didn’t need two but they looked so beautiful. 🙂
