Cochem is one of the most attractive towns of the Mosel Valley, with a riverside promenade to rival any along the Rhine. It's especially lively during the wine festivals in June and late August. If time permits, savor the landscape from the deck of a boat—many excursions are available, lasting from one hour to an entire day. From the Enderttor (Endert Town Gate) you can see the entrance to one of Germany's longest railroad tunnels, the Kaiser-Wilhelm, an astonishing example of 19th-century engineering. The 4-km (2½-mile) tunnel saves travelers a 21-km (13-mile) detour along one of the Mosel's great loops.
