Ferienwohnung "Altstadt"

Bernkastel-Kues · Mosel


Be charmed by this beautiful house from the 17th century. Our great grandparents lived in this historic house. They worked long days in the vineyards and came home to a house without electricity, running water, heating or a washing machine...
Today you can experience the historic charm with the convenience of the 21st. Century. The apartment was completely renovated in 2012. Step out of the lovely furnishings right into the historic city center. The marketplace with its timbered houses; bakery, small grocery store, restaurants and boutiques, are only a few steps away.
Relax while you are taking walks through the scenic town, hikes through the vineyards, a river cruise on the Mosel or excursions to other romantic towns. For example; you can visit Trier, Luxemburg or the Eifelmaare.

Vacation rental

We have furnished our vacation rental “Altstadt” (old town) with lots of love, and are very happy that the German Tourism Association (DTV) has awarded our efforts with four stars. The overall appearance, comfort as well as the infrastructure of our house has been reviewed.
Our house belongs to the cultural monument zone. All work that has to be done on the outside of the home has to be approved by the Antiquities and Monuments office. However, on the inside we had the freedom to build small, modern bathrooms and to lay all electrical work under plastering. We replaced all night- storage heaters with individually controlled infrared heating systems. These are the only changes we did to the house, in order to keep the old charm with wooden doors and old timber floorboards as much as possible.

The vacation rental is 75 qm / 807 ft (2) and has room for 1 to 4 people. It stretches across two floors.

2. floor: Kitchen, living room, hall and wardrobe
3. floor: 2 bedrooms, bathroom
