The personnel is not perhaps the reason why people come here and enjoy their stay. But after a hard start and settling down on a table (or hut) outdoors, and a lengthy order of cakes and drinks, we were finally accepted. Good beer, coffee, Apple Cake and Cheese Cakes,

So we did experience the sort of rude service people described about this place. The prices were about as high as the mountain. We paid 21 euros for four beers (I usually tip quite well... not this time :) However.. once we got our beers and relaxed, nothing could beat the spectacular view of Cochem and the castle. Here is...

Took the chair lift up so the views weren't as good as if we'd taken it down. However, the open patio at the restaurant more than made up for it. It's not expensive at all, even with wine and beer.

We took the sesselbahn up and enjoyed it. As it was so hot, we thought we'd relax with a cold drink on the terrace, before our descent. The tables with the best views were full. We placed our order for 2 soft drinks with a dark-haired waiter. While we were waiting, a table with a good view down the mountainside... More

Take the chair lift up. The restaurant has a terrace overlooking Cochem, the Mosel and across to the castle. Did not eat here but spent time relaxing with a couple of glasses of wine. Nice friendly service. Great place to relax on a nice afternoon.

Unfortunately we got rained out during our ride. Luckily we had a covered chairlift. Didn't know there was a restaurant at the top. We jumped back on the chairlift to go back down. Was disappointed there wasn't any spectacular views going up or down.

You can walk up a footpath if you are very hardy but the chair lift is a unique way to get to the terrace restaurant. Once on top you can walk along to a the Pinner Kreuz (Cross) with a wonderful view over Cochem and the castle. The terrace restaurant is a very welcome find up there, serving snacks, full... More

After going up with the chairlift, you can drop down at this quite large cafe, which offers a decent view of Cochem and the Reichsburg. The prizes are a lot higher than down in the centre of the town. Food is ok, nothing too fancy.

Located at the top of the cable car run, this cafe provdes a nice view of both the city below and the surrounding countryside. A great location for a mid-afternoon snack or a refreshing break from playing tourist.
