Bernkastel is Dirk’s birth place. It is a very beautiful place on the Mosel and the site of the most expensive and well-known of the Riesling wines, the Bernkastel Doktor. It is very popular with tourists and quite crowded most of the times but it’s always lovely to go there and walk around, especially when the tourists are gone 🙂 .

Obviously, we visited it many times since 2001. See our collection of photos from Bernkastel-Kues and the Mosel area.
