Here, you can ride the waves on the water course and at the same time experience animals close up.

Motor Bike Riding

Aim, check the striking force and swing! Mini-golf is fun and entertainment for the whole family.

FN Motor Bike Meeting

There are films that simply have to be seen in the cinema, because the cinema experience is just different: a big screen, sound fills the air around you, and nothing can replace the smell of fresh popcorn!   Every year in the third week in September, lovers of the old FN Motorbikes, first made in Belgium in 1901, meet in Bernkastel-Kues. Here, friends and enthusiasts can marvel at the old timers and talk shop with their owners.
