A popular legend in the Moselle city says that in the 14th century the Trier Elector Boemund II became seriously feverish during a stay at Landshut Castle. No medicine helped and none of his famous doctors knew what to do.
With a small barrel of his best wine an old winegrower came to the Elector and explained to him that this wine was the best medicine. After his enjoyment, the Elector was healed. As a sign that this wine was "the true Doctor", the Elector awarded the vineyard the high distinction of being allowed to call itself "Berncasteler Doctor" from now on.
In the footsteps of a legend
That's how the Bernkastel Doctor got his name. So far, in short, the legend around the "Bernkasteler Doctor". This legend was an incentive for us to create a special kind of guided tour: the "City Tour with the Bernkastel Doctor".
