Situated in the valley of the Mosel, Cochem is surrounded by vineyards. The town, in particular its old quarter, is dominated by the late-Gothic castle, the Reichsburg. There is also a preserved mustard mill. This was built in around 1810, and is the only surviving example in Europe. The old quarter of Cochem is also home to preserved sections of the town walls and three of the wall's gates. There is a fascinating arts centre housed in Cochem's former monastery.
