“Beautiful Bernkastel”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

One of the Mosel’s gems! No matter how many times we’ve visited here we still enjoy coming back. We brought a friend from the US for a walk through. He too loved this beautiful village. Lots of shops (mostly touristy, but still), restaurants, cafes, and hotels to stroll around/through. For a look at a wonderful, touristy but beautiful, ½ timbered village, it’s hard to beat Bernkastel.

“So Quaint and Beautiful”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

This little square in the main village on the bank of the Mosel river is straight out of a Fairytale from days gone by, the architecture is incredible, the shops and restaurants are wonderful!1 It is a very relaxing place to stop and stay a night or two if your traveling along the Mosel River. Once a year the Bernkastel-Kues weekend Winefestival triples the population, but is a wonderful time to visit and taste the wines. It can be a little touristy at times, but you would never regret putting this little village on your agenda for at least a stop over and some wine. It's like stepping back in time, just incredible.

“Photogenic Bernkastel”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

During our cruise of the Mosel River, we spent a day in Bernkastel. We had a walking tour of the town. The market square here is full of the colorful buildings and temped us to take photo after photo. Our guide pointed out a rigging on the city hall used to punish residents by public humiliation. This was for non criminal acts, but used to force people to conform to acceptable behavior. As the walk continued, we discovered Bernkastel is full of picturesque squares, often centered with a statue and surrounded by gorgeous buildings. Many people in our tour later named Bernkastel as one of the 2 or 3 most beautiful and interesting towns we visited on the Mosel River.

“Mini fairytale village”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

We went here for an afternoon ride through the vineyards of the Mosel. The Town is absolutely beautiful and the old houses are amazing. A must view for all German wine lovers. We then took the Mosel road down to trier , I would recommend that if you want to see the steep wine hills of the Mosel.
