A personal selection of photographs with their stories.
One last picture of the beautiful city of Bernkastel. The city is one of the top locations in the Moselle Valley. It is located in the so-called Middle Moselle Valley, between the city of Trier and Zell, where you can meet a sharp loop of the Moselle River. From Zell to the city of Koblenz, , where the Moselle River meets the Rhine River, this region is called Lower Moselle Valley. Tourists can spend many hours in the pittoresque center of Bernkastel, where they can wonder many typical half-timber houses. The picture shows a skyline of Bernkastel, with the Early Gothic Michaelkirche (St Michael’s Church). Left from the church is the former Textile House ‘Haus Astor’, now hosting tourists. In 1512, Emperor Maximillian made a stop there, ate very well, and awarded them accordingly.
