  • The buildings belonging to the pen, are beautiful to look at from the outside. You are right on the bridge that crosses the river Moselle. An internal inspection is possible only with leadership. But then, you'd see a beautiful library. The monastery is now used as the elderly and nursing home. Also in the buildings is a wine Museum, to which I can not say because I wasn't there. My rating refers to the condition of the facade, the location of the PIN and the areas that are visible without a guide.

  • The small town of bernkastel-kues is divided into two parts by the river Moselle. Bernkastel a fabulously beautiful and deserves recognition from many tourists. Kus is much more modest. But it is famous for the others. It is the birthplace of the famous philosopher and theologian Nicholas Cusanus. The Moselle there is St. Nicholas Monastery, founded in the 15 century thinker himself. For many years he served as a hospital for the poor. There is a small, but quite beautiful church. And another monastery is famous for its library.
