On the way to Andernach, the environment along the river slowly begins to change and the first vineyards come into view. Andernach was originally a Celtic fortress and is one of the oldest cities on the Rhine. The image of this city is determined by the ancient 56 meter high round tower. In the pleasant center, behind the old fortress walls, many remains from that time can be found.

The square is surrounded by picturesque half-timbered houses in different colors with nice shops and various drinking and dining establishments. You will also find the beautiful Martinsbrunnen on the square, a fountain from 1767. Cochem is best known for its Moselle wines. Along the banks of the river, the many vineyards on the slopes of the hills can be seen. Due to the steepness of the hills, the vines cannot be picked by machine and are therefore harvested annually by hand. You can certainly taste the Moselle wines that are then made at one of the many tasting rooms in the city.
