No wonder that the long and varied history of Bernkastel-Kues can also be read in various art and architectural styles. The historical market place in the old town is a microcosm of architecture. The oldest buildings on this central square date from the 13th century. The famous "Spitzhäuschen" (pointed-house) is only a little younger, while the town hall is an example of Renaissance architecture. The "Michaelsbrunnen" (fountain) already testifies to modern art.
There is a completely different kind of architecture in the district of Wehlen: here stands - hangs - the only suspension bridge on the Moselle.
