We made a short visit after our meeting in Wittlich, it is very beatiful in nature. We visit the castle, it is very small, but view of the city fantastic

Unless you take the easy route up by very slow yellow bus (which runs every hour on the hour and returns at 20 past the hour), this is a real hike up to the hilltop. It is probably that you don't get the same bus...More

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!

The old castle ruins uphill is not very attractive but the views it offer are wonderful. We take the "yellow" bus uphill but walk downhill through the vineyards. The way downhill is easy and it finally ends up in the market square down town. Highly...More

Well worth the walk up (or shuttle bus if you prefer). From the main square the walk takes up to 30 minutes, and is obviously a bit of a climb but not too bad. Good views at the top overlooking Bernkastel and the vineyards. The...More

We took the 'yellow bus,' which is really more of a truck with seats. It dropped us off right at the facility. We were told we could walk it but the bus worked best for us. We did not eat there although a nice meal...More

We drove and parked near the castle and had just a little walk. It is the earliest hill fort layout traced in the Mosel Valley (293-306). There are informational signs around to share the history, It was so interesting to see how the stonework was...More

The castle offers a beautiful view of the town below, and a seemingly popular cafe/restaurant. We peeked in the restaurant and noticed the staff setting up for some sort of event dinner; I imagine this would be a beautiful setting for a small wedding reception...More

With amazing views of the Mossel valley and surrounding vineyards, this castle and restaurant are a great place to hike and enjoy lunch, dinner or a nice glass of the local wine. The restaurant has floor to ceiling glass walls that allows you to enjoy...More

Yes, but you can climb up to see the view. Besides, there's nothing really exciting to see inside. They have a restaurant in the summer but the food is crappy. Well, it's nice to stop for a glass of wine after the hike up.
