Travel Tips for Bernkastel-Kues
a strange way to build a house
This building is one of the most famous ones in Bernkastel-Kues, as it is built on a rather small piece of land and gets larger and larger by each floor.
When you click on my picture, you may see the dimensions, in comparison to the people walking next to it.
You actually need an extreme-wideangle-lens to make such a picture in that tiny street, close to the market-square.
When you stand on the market-square, this building is close to the old townhall.
share your table with a bear
It is in fact a local custom in Hotel Baeren, that you will find bears in various places through-out the restaurant and hotel. Even at the breakfast-table small wooden sculptures of bears will watch your appetit.
There are more pics about these bears in Hotel Baeren in my travelogue !
Climb up the tower for a great view
be careful when you take the last few steps up to the tower, some of the stones are a bit un-even and might be slippery after a rain.
But the view is absolutely worth the trouble, especially when the weather is perfect.
a building dating back to 1644
When you take a closer look at the great facades you may sometimes see the date , when the building was built or restored.
This building indicates 1644, and when you click on my picture you may as well see the lovely ornaments and decorations of the wooden structure in the facade.
A walk through pure renaissance style
Bernkastel-Kues has an amazing appeal of being built in pure renaissance or/and art nouveau architectural style. Bernkastel-Kues is perhaps the postcard-perfect Mosel town, complete with castle ruins, half-timber houses, medieval marketplace and architectural styles spanning nearly two millennia. There's no pretense. We don't think of ourselves as a tourist attraction, said one local vintner.. We just do what we do, in some ways no differently today than 200 years ago. People don't sightsee here, they visit. Most of what locals are doing relates to winemaking, and vineyards indeed stretch as far as the eye can see - or at least until the next curve in the river.
