Cochem Castle, built in the 12th century, lies on the Moselle River in the Rhineland area of western Germany. It is cradled on a hilltop that offers panoramic views of Cochem village and the surrounding landscape of the Rhineland-Palatinate state. Contributor Stefan Beumer flew his drone over the castle and the village, creating this spectacular aerial view of the magnificent landmark, which was destroyed in the 17th century and rebuilt in the 19th.
