St.-Nikolaus-Hospital

Updated 11/14/2013

Fodor's Review

The Renaissance philosopher and theologian Nikolaus Cusanus (1401–64) was born in Kues. The St.-Nikolaus-Hospital is a charitable Stiftung (foundation) he established in 1458, and it still operates a home for the elderly and a wine estate.

Mosel-Weinmuseum. Within St.-Nikolaus-Hospital is a wine museum as well as a bistro. There's also a Vinothek (wineshop). in the vaulted cellar, where you can sample more than 150 wines from the entire Mosel-Saar-Ruwer region. St.-Nikolaus-Hospital, Cusanusstr. 2, 54470. www.moselweinmuseum.de. Museum €5, Vinothek €15 for admission and wine tasting. Apr.–Oct., daily 10–6; Nov.–Mar., daily 11–5.
