Cochem Castle, Cochem, Germany
Towering & richly decorated, 11th-century hill-top castle with panoramic views from its restaurant. More than 100 meters above the Moselle, the late-Gothic structure with its incomparable outline rises on a prominent cone. The outer contour of the towering mountain seems to continue in the building and culminates in the slate roof of the massive tower. The building’s structure is arranged in the type of the high-rise castles, which were set up according to the terrain for the purpose of an all-round defense.
