Cochem, The Cutest Village Along Mosel Valley In Germany

After a morning visit to Burg Eltz it’s time for a lovely lunch. Cochem is a really cute village, and the perfect spot to enjoy the German kitchen. 

Cochem is a smashing village directly on the banks of the Mosel, surrounded by vineyards and hiking trails. But besides the wonderful surroundings, the village of Cochem itself is also very nice.

The center of the villages takes you back to the midivil times, with the narrow streets, colourful wooden houses, slate roofs, town gates and a wonderful town square.

Wander around the town and sit down for a German lunch, and don’t forget to try the famous Riesling wines which is made in the area.

Along the Mosel there is a nice walking path, decorated with flowers and benches. And from here you can see the pristine Rechsburg castle, the main landmark of Cochem. Take a boat trip or a walking tour to get to know this diverse village.

Geiyerlay Bridge

The Geierlay Bridge is one of the longest suspended walking bridges in Europe. With over 360 meters in length and 100 m in height, this bridge is a must see attraction in Germany. As the last highlight of this 3-day camping trip the Geierlay bridge is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy a nice hike.

Sniff up the clean air, see how far you can look and enjoy the green natural environment. The thick forests surrounding the bridge make this places even more special, as you would never expect there to be a huge suspended bridge!

Since 2015 the Geierlay Bridge connects the villages of Mörsdorf and Sosberg. The bridge is part of a wonderful hiking trail through the German greens. And since it opened, the bridge has had over 300.000 visitors.

For people with a fear of heights, this might not be your favourite attraction as the bridge is very high and is a bit shaky. But is definitely a special experience with a spectacular view!

You can park your car in Mörsdorf and walk 1,8 km (about 20 minutes) to get to the suspended bridge. The Geierlay bridge on itself is free of cost, the only thing you need to pay is the parking. Also, at the bridge there are no shops or bathrooms, so make sure to bring some snacks and go to the bathroom before you start walking.
