About Cruising to Bernkastel-Kues

If you're browsing German cruise itineraries, you'll want to consider spending a day in Bernkastel. Here you'll get to experience European quaintness. Located in the heart of Moselle wine country, Bernkastel specializes in dry white whites made from the Riesling grape; if you think all German wines are sweet, you'll be pleasantly surprised by the quality in this area.

Even if you don't like wine, Bernkastel provides a pleasant stop. The old town is full of half-timbered buildings from the Middle Ages, including the Town Hall, which dates back to 1608. There are also cafes and restaurants for people watching or a late lunch, as well as shops for souvenirs. Those seeking a nice walk can go up the hill to the ruins of Castle Landshut, which offers nice views of the valley; there's also a shuttle bus from the village. If your riverboat has bikes onboard, there's a path along the river for riding. Finally, Bernkastel is occasionally used as a jumping-off point for day trips to Trier or Luxembourg.
