It is a perfect combination - a short, relatively easy hike, castle ruins with panoramic views, lots of photo opportunities and a chance to stop in a restaurant if so desired. When visiting Bernkasel-Kues this destination is an attraction to itself.
Beautiful views of Mosel river.

The castle is lovely - albeit the walk up challenging - but the views are fantastic. We decided to have a drink in the restaurant. Worst service I’ve experienced. 10 people were served before us and it took 40 minutes to be served 2 drinks. Confusion and hostility between the servers the major factor. Plus most expensive drink in the town. I’d give the restaurant a miss.

From the mainroad in Bernkastel-Kues you can find a 2 km dirt path up to the castle and back again. There are small signposts all the way, so it’s easy to follow the path.

Take the Burgberg Rundweg counter clockwise. Then the steepest part of the dirt path will be up hill. Downhill it will be easier, don’t worry.

Entrance to the lower part of the castle is free. If you want to climb the tower you’ll have to pay.

The views from the castle over Bernkastel-Kues and surroundings are magnificent.

When traveling for wine, we also visited this castle. From here there is a wonderful view of the river Mosel and the whole Bernkasel. You can also diversify this view with good food. We had something smaller and lighter. Both dishes were good and we can recommend. Due to the larger number of people, the staff was a bit stuck, but they could also understand.

Pretty well signposted from the main square of B-K. It's an uphill but reasonably straightforward walk to reach the old fortress - didn't take long. Great views from the top! Would recommend if you're visiting B-K

We caught the little yellow bus up to the castle which was good value for €7 (or €6 with you visitor discount card) for the round trip. Stop for lunch or coffee in Schutzenhaus Beer garden and restaurant. Excellent menu and reasonable prices. Loved the salmon, leek and sour cream pizza. Very good coffee too. Very relaxing atmosphere and really good and efficient service.

Some of our group climbed up and some took the bus (return $7 euro). The castle is a ruin that is interesting to walk around. The views of the town and surrounding countryside are wonderful. We stopped at the restaurant for a drink. The local wines recommended were very good. The memory of drinking wine while enjoying the view will stay with us a long time

Wonderful castle ruins on top of Bernkastle-Kues. Fantastic views at top and great facilities, cafe/toilets. Quite steep walking up from town (I think there is a bus from town if you require assistance). Certainly recommended a visit if only for the view at the top!

We took the train up to the ruins and walked down. The view was incredible. The view from the restaurant, with floor to ceiling windows was breath taking. The food looked great (we ordered beer and cappuccino). A must see.

The best view of Bernkastel-Kues is from this old castle - which is clearly the reason why the Romans built it (and mediaeval Germans improved it) in the first place.

It can be difficult getting to the top on foot, as it's quite a long walk up the hill. Better to drive, but there are very few parking spots up there. If you ask at the Information office in town, they may give you some information about the sightseeing "train" travelling up there.

There is a small restaurant/café up there, but it opens at 12:00 så early treks are not recommended. For lunch, though, this place is a great place to be as you can eat while looking at the river and town below.
