Mittelalterlicher Marktplatz, Bernkastel-Kues

(4.8/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Step back in time with a visit to Mittelalterlicher Marktplatz, a public square that has been the beating heart of a small town for centuries. The center of a thriving community since the 12th century, the marketplace was once a popular site for regional trade and local gossip. Local merchants met here to sell their goods, while the residents came to exchange bits of news and purchase much-needed household goods. Today, this old square is surrounded by picturesque timber-framed buildings, most of which were erected during the Middle Ages. Make sure your camera is charged and ready at hand when you pass through this idyllic part of town.

  • Overlooking the Mosel this country really quaint. The old town is very nice with its ancient timbered houses and of course this square is the main attraction. On a facade during advent calendar is the largest in the region.

  • The marketplace is a journey into the past and is recommended all year round. Bernkastel-Kues is a necessarily a travel value. We were there last year to the Weihnachsmarkt, this weekend, Fireworks and the market place was very crowded, but worth, beautiful, the pyrotechnicians have done a great job. You should try met at the Christmas market, honey, super delicious. White mulled wine by a winemaker is a delicacy and tastes different, like a normal mulled wine. This with the backdrop of the marketplace that is absolutely recommended.
