#2 of 12 in Things to do in Bernkastel-Kues
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.

  • Bernkastel-Kues is a tourist resort passed-over. The streets and also the market square parking at the port are crowded scarce at the dimensions show up Besucher.So. It's nice to see him, in good weather, the crowd is enormous. The place is worth a visit, it is enough to have seen him.

  • The small market square of Bernkastel dates back to the middle ages and is also still so. The buildings are very well preserved and you can imagine yourself really in the past. Most of the buildings date from about 1400. On the market square of course a beautiful Rathaus and a beautiful Fountain. Really worth a visit.
