The foundation stone for the shooting range was laid in 1868 on the initiative of the local shooting club, which operated the club's own shooting range as well as the restaurant. But the history of the shooting range is much older. At this point in the Middle Ages, as part of the inner defensive ring of Landshut Castle ruins towering high above Bernkastel, there was a strongly fortified gate through which visitors entered the gigantic castle complex.
After extensive renovation work, the Restaurant Schützenhaus has shone in a new light since September 2013. All year round, guests have the opportunity to enjoy delicious meals, the best Moselle wines and other culinary delights in a modern yet cosy atmosphere.
