The ruins of Landshut Castle loom over Bernkastel. Dates of the castle will all the way back to the 9th Century. From the castle you have a captivating view of the awe-inspiring Moselle valley and the vast expanse. Below you can see the picturesque old town, the sprawling district of Kues, Andel and Wehlen in the distance, not to mention the numerous boats and vessels cruising leisurely along the Moselle. The castle, along with all of its treasures, was destroyed by a fire in 1692. However, it is still possible to climb the castle tower. The ruins are surrounded by various paths, offering visitors a range of leisurely hiking routes. The Hunsrück mountain range with its deep forests and gorges is also easy to reach from here and well worth exploring.

Bernkastel is one of these pretty and historical towns on the banks of the Moselle River. Vineyards climb the steep hillsides on either side of the town. A good many of the Moselle tour and excursion ships depart from the river bank in front of the town on regular schedules. Photo taken at the transit of sunset and moonrise above this little town.

Door de gunstige steile hellingen is het Moezelland één van de gebieden met de meeste kastelen en burchten van Europa. Ze zijn bijna allemaal met de auto, maar ook te voet door heerlijke wandelgebieden te bereiken. Bernkastel-Kues is een plaats in de Duitse deelstaat Rijnland-Palts, en maakt deel uit van het district Bernkastel-Wittlich. Het stadje ligt langs de Moezel. Het stadje is een toeristische trekpleister in de Moezelvallei en bestaat uit twee delen: Bernkastel op de rechteroever en Kues op de linkeroever. Beide delen zijn verbonden met een brug over de Moezel. Vanaf de oever vanBernkastel is een boottochtje op de Moezel eenaanrader. De Moezel is zo een 545 kilometer lang en stroomt in Koblenz in de Rijn. Bernkastel-Kues, Traben-Trarbach en Ürzig vormen het hart van de Moezel, de Mittelmosel. Je hebt verschillende maatschappijen die boottochten aanbieden, en je hebt onder andere de keuze uit een rondvaart of een boottocht met tussenstop. Vanaf de boot, krijg je toch weer een andere kijk op het landschap
