Situated on both sides of the Moselle and overlooked by the impressive ruins of Landshut Castle, Bernkastel-Kues invites you on a journey through over 2,000 years of history. You can see splendidly decorated half-timbered houses, the early Gothic St. Michael's Church with its baroque organ, the Renaissance town hall and the Renaissance fountain on the market square.
Insights into the city walk:
If you are looking for a moderate ascent to Landshut Castle, we recommend the Family Circuit. The walk leads through Bernkastel with its romantic alleys, along the Tiefenbach stream to the small waterfall, past the Tinkel chapel and finally up to the castle. The route is longer than the other two paths leading from the historic market square and the sharpened house up to the castle, but has the advantage that it leads through the town forest from the Burgbergtunnel and shade-giving trees make the ascent easier on hot days.
On the way through the old town there are many nice places to stop for refreshments.
