Bernkastel-Kues Local Customs: 12 reviews and 11 photos


It is a restaurant today, next to the old townhall, but in the ancient times it was a "Badstub"
Not BAD at all, but the german word for "bathing-hall" dating back to the time, when taking a bath was only possible in one place of the village, and everybody was sitting inside of a big tub every now and then, some people once a month , some maybe once a year.
