Travel Tips for Bernkastel-Kues
Talk to someone who knows ...
I guess we all agree on this on; there is nothing more exciting than going travelling - exploring another country, experiencing a different culture, travelling around in new ways, sampling the local cuisine and chatting to the local people for a different perspective on life.
However during our travels we learned that there is one certain thing that you should be aware of and prepared for to make sure that the trip is as easy and enjoyable as possible. We always try to see everything once we're there, but this is not always an act of responsible travelling. We always talk to the locals and we know that they have the information about just the right spots to visit and how to undertake them. It will not only enhance your experiences but also avoid any unnecessary hassles.
For us the travel tips we have written in this section made the most of our travel experience and we came home in the same happy, healthy state that we left.
a great wine-chandelier
Have a look for this great chandelier, that I saw in Hotel Baeren:
Grapes and wine-leaves seem to wind around the lights and a chandelier like this certainly adds a lot of great athmoshere to a glass of wine or two or three...
I cannot say where you may buy such a chandelier, but it would certainly make a great souvenir !
Castle Landshut of today
Today the castle is mostly a ruin , surrounded by vinyards and with a tower that you may climb up in order to have a perfect view of the Mosel-valley.
Simply enter the restaurant, pay a small fee of 1 Euro and walk up the stairs.
At first theb stair is rather comfortable, but at the very top it gets rather small and also a bit dangerous.
wars and battles in this area the Castle withstood but in 1792 a fire destroyed it and was never been restored, just refined so that Visitors do not come to harm.
walking up over narrow cobblestone streets can be a bit of a strain. but its worth it. knowing there is some relief coming...at the Cafe and having a terrific view over the town
St.Michael on the town-square
St.Michael is the patron of the town Bernkastel-Kues and so you may see him also on top of the fountain on the main-square.
St.Michael is an angel, therefore you may see his golden wings on the statue, surrounded by great old half-timbered houses.
This fountain dates back to 1606.
