We spent Easter around the little historic wine town of Bernkastel on the middle Moselle. I love the town’s ancient little market place, (very reminiscent of “Trumpton”) along with its winding streets and leaning half-timbered houses. The steep South and SW facing slopes produce some of the region’s finest grapes for quality wines including the famous Bernkastel “Doctor”. The surrounding woodlands and meadows provide great nature spotting opportunities with extensive views over the river valley. We spent a great few days and found lots of interest within just a few square kilometres.
