Description

A popular legend in the Moselle town says that in the 14th century the Elector Boemund II of Trier became seriously ill during a stay at the castle Landshut. No medication helped and none of his famous doctors knew what to do.

An old winegrower came to the Elector with a small barrel of his best wine and explained to him that this wine was the best medicine. After enjoying it, the Elector was healed. As a sign that this wine was "the true Doctor", the Elector awarded the vineyard the high distinction of being allowed to call itself "Berncasteler Doctor" from now on.

This is how the "Bernkasteler Doctor" got his name. So far, in short, the legend about the "Bernkasteler Doctor". This legend inspired us to create a special kind of guided tour: the "City Tour with the Bernkasteler Doctor". The 90-minute tour through the old town of Bernkastel includes - Nomen est omen - 2 glasses of Doctor wine.
