In the following we offer a selection of guided tours, sightseeing and leisure activities for groups in Bernkastel-Kues.
Guided tour through the historical city centre of Bernkastel
The Moselle town of Bernkastel-Kues is one of the most popular excursion and holiday destinations. One reason for this is most certainly the old town with its many half-timbered houses and historical buildings. The cobblestoned medieval marketplace with its Renaissance town hall, the Spitzhäuschen (“Pointed House”) and Michaelsbrunnen (“Saint Michael’s Fountain”) and the many narrow and winding alleyways ensure a visit is always an adventure - and a city tour is basically a must.

Doctor - Wine - Tour
According to a popular local legend, back in the 14th century the Elector of Trier Boemund II fell seriously ill with fever during a stay at Landshut Castle. Remedies were prescribed to no effect, and none of the Elector's celebrated doctors knew what to.
An old winegrower came to see the Elector with a keg of his finest wine, declaring it to be the best medicine. The Elector drank the wine and was miraculously cured. In recognition that this particular wine was his "true healer", the Elector awarded the vineyard the prestigious honour of allowing it to take the name of "Bernkasteler Doctor" from then on.
This 90-minute “City Tour with Bernkasteler Doctor” through the old town of Bernkastel includes – as its name suggests – two glasses of "Bernkasteler Doctor" wine.
