Tale Of Two Rivers – Cochem

Continuing from the last post – the next day we made our way to Cochem … bright sunshine, blue skies only sparsely dotted with fluffy white clouds… it was a glorious spring day when we set off from Wolf… Follow our journey to and in Cochem in the pictures below…

Following the road, up and down the hills, back and forth across the river, I kept making wrong turns...distracted as I was with the landscape around me. So, 30 minutes eventually took an hour till we reached the town of Cochem... Beginning in 1298 (though the town is much older), Cochem and its castle were held by the Archbishops of Trier, which is reflected in its coat of arms here. The cross on the left side is part of Trier's coat of arms and the hand with two keys is a symbol of St Peter, the patron saint of Trier. (April 2015)
