007: Reflections in window
Bernkastel-Kues is a small town in the Moselle Valley, famous for the Riesling quality wines that are produced there. Bernkastel has a cozy historic center that attracts many German tourists and tourists from neighboring countries. The town’s history dates back from the 11th century, but there are indications that the region was already inhabited some five thousand years ago. One of the principal ruins is the Landshut Castle that dates back from the 13th century. Nowadays, the skyline is marked by the tall tower of the St. Michael and St. Sebastian Church. The center is marked by many half-timbered houses, of which the Spitzhäuschen, built in 1416, is the most remarkable. The window in the picture is located in one of the half-timbered houses.
