Mittelalterlicher Marktplatz, Bernkastel-Kues
(4.9/5 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. Arrange to visit Mittelalterlicher Marktplatz and other attractions in Bernkastel-Kues using our Bernkastel-Kues family vacation planner.

  • Beautiful half timbered buildings with wonderful shops and cafes. Many Wine shops with hard to find Rieslings grown and made locally. I Bought some Eiswein to bring home with Me. Bernkastel itself is ...  more »
  • On the weekend we visited the Christmas market. We are fascinated by this small town. Everything is very nicely decorated, feels like Christmas world. The large advent calendar on the market square is beautiful. Doors and decorations are about a whole facade. Thank you for the lovely weekend.

  • The small town of bernkastel-kues on the banks of the Moselle seems fabulous. Its main attraction is the amazing half-timbered houses, seemingly toy. Perhaps the most beautiful place in the city-Marktplatz, i.e. trading area. Here, each House has its own unique entity. One of the most beautiful buildings-the Town Hall. And around the many shops and cafes. You can buy souvenirs, try the famous mozel'skoe wine. After all, Bernkastel is one of the centers of wine production in Germany. Great place.
