IntroductionLying approximately equidistant between the cities of Trier and Koblenz in the Mosel valley, Cochem is a small town of just 5,000 or so inhabitants. Being a small town, it doesn't have the most comprehensive transport links to the rest of the country, however this is all relative, and Germany's transport infrastructure even for a small town, is still perfectly good. Cochem lies 15km off the A48 motorway, although for a more picturesque route to either Trier or Koblenz, take the B49/B53 road which runs alongside the river Mosel.
Cochem has its own station with good local connections; there are direct services to Trier (between 45mins - 65mins) and Koblenz (between 40mins - 50mins), and indirect services to Luxembourg (2hrs) and Bonn (from 1hr 20mins) amongst other destinations.
Frankfurt Hahn airport is just 25km away and has connections to destinations via low cost carriers Whizz air and Ryan air. These include Bulgaria, Hungary, Italy, Spain and the Edinburgh and London Stansted in the UK.
