The German town of Bernkastel-Kues is located in the Moselle Valley, halfway between Cochem and Trier. This attractive little town, often referred to as "The Pearl of the Moselle", is known for some of the finest wines produced in Germany. The town is located on the very edge of the river tightly enclosed by some dramatic steep-slope vineyards. The town is actually divided in two, with Bernkastel to the east of river Moselle and Kues to the west. The villages are joined by a bridge.

The town’s major attraction is the medieval marketplace surrounded by well preserved gabled timber-frame houses from the 17th century. Especially well-known is the very small and narrow house called Spitzhäuschen (the Pointed House), which dates back to 1416, and whose ground floor is much narrower than the upper floors that gives the house a wobbly look. The Heinz'sche Haus (Heinz'sche House) is another richly embellished half-timbered house and one of the oldest buildings in market square. It now serves as the premises of an attractive wine tavern.
