This iconic German building is worthy even of just a peak inside. Stay for some excellent local food. Try the peach laced wine, potato soup, fresh pike-perch, or the pork schnitzel.

Terrific old Gasthaus on the town's pretty old market square with lots of half-timbered buildings. We were lucky enough to get a window seat overlooking the square and enjoyed our excellent 'Rhineland' potato soup, mixed salad, beer and coffee.

After a disspointing experience in another Restaurant in Bernkastle we were delighted to get a table at the Ratskeller. The food was very tasty, the wine delightful and the service excellent.
