Bernkastel River Cruise Packages

Bernkastel is an "international town of vines and wine." Your European River Cruise will give you a great introduction to Bernkastel, a town situated in the middle of the Moselle Valley and surrounded by vineyards and lush, beautiful hills. Bernkastel is a resort getaway for people around the globe who come to taste the famous wines and enjoy the beautiful climate and welcoming locals. There is plenty to do in and around Bernkastel, whether you would like to explore the city or the surrounding countryside. The old town is lovely, with timbered houses and beautiful churches such as the St. Michael's Parish Church with its magnificent tower. There is also the beautiful Bear Fountain and the remains of the impressive town gate, the Graacher Tor.

When you visit Bernkastel on your European River Cruise you will also have many opportunities to enjoy great outdoor recreation. The three newer parts of town, Andel, Wehlen, and Kueser Plateau have many recreational activities and plenty of charm. In Andel there is ample opportunity for cycling, hiking, canoeing, and in-line skating through the grasslands, meadows, vineyards and wooded hillsides. You may even be adventurous enough to fly in a water plane above the Moselle. In the Kueser Plateau there are many other recreational activities as well, from mountain biking to horseback riding.

If you are a shopper, your visit to Bernkastel will not be a disappointment. The Market Square is filled with unique shops where you can find treasures for yourself and your loved ones at home. Of course, a very popular souvenir is the famous wines, or even a vine from the Moselle Valley and directions on how to cultivate it. Make sure you will be able to reenter your home country with non-native fruits before you purchase one!
