It wasn't open when I was there but it has a great history. The building is 600-years-old! The base of the house is extremely narrow with the upper floors sticking out wider. It was originally built this way to allow for wagons to travel through the narrow alley running alongside the building. Tax payments in many cities in Germany were... More

It doesn't take a lot of time, unless you go inside and want to try some wines.But the house is cute and shaped like this for good reasons: Now traffic can pass throough the street. Upstairs is bigger.

We have visited Berncastle before and always come to look at this wonderful quirky house, our friends had never been to Germany before so this was a must see. We did not stop for a drink etc. as the place was too crowded.

Somewhere at the back of my mind there was an image of an incredibly narrow wine bar in Bernkastel-Keus that I had visited while driving around Germany many, many years ago. The memory was so strong that when I was looking for a destination for a few days away with my daughter I decided to revisit Bernkastel-Keus and find this... More

Making and selling their own wines, picked from their own vineyards, its hard not to like the experience of a glass of wine from Spitzhaeuschen. The building has been renovated but a long and interesting history, and is one of the most photographed building in Bernkastel-Kues. The interior, as you may gather from the exterior, is small but cosy. Not... More

We wondered if people could really fit into the building that looked so pointed from the outside, and sure enough there wasn’t much room on the stairs up to the very cozy room with the low ceiling where we found a table for five. The friendly server brought our wine selections and gave us some good tips on what kind... More

Absolutely wonderful old structure dating from the 15th century. About 5 feet wide, couple of tables downstairs. Stationed in Lahr Schwarzwald in the 60s/70s, and re-visited here with close friends this year, great to sit & sample some local wines, and to leave with an excellent bottle of your choice. Mother & son business now, in the family for many... More
