Bernkastel and Kues straddle the Mosel, on the east and west banks, respectively. Bernkastel is home to famed Bernkasteler Doctor, a small, especially steep vineyard that makes one of Europe's most expensive wines. Early German humanist Nikolaus Cusanus (1401–64) was from Kues; today his birthplace and St.-Nikolaus-Hospital are popular attractions.
