    Bernkastel-Kues [ˌbɛɐnkastl̩ˈkuːs] ("Kues" with stretch-e), official spelling until July 16, 1936: Bernkastel-Cues, [2] even older spelling Berncastel-Cues [3], is a town on the Middle Moselle in the District of Bernkastel-Wittlich, Rhineland-Palatinate. It is a state-approved spa, the seat of the community of Bernkastel-Kues as well as the service center for rural areas Mosel (DLR Mosel) and the birthplace of the medieval churchman and philosopher Nikolaus von Kues (Cusanus).

    In 1291, Bernkastel received city rights at the instigation of Archbishop Boemund I of Trier. The first town hall was probably built shortly thereafter on the same site.
    The town hall in Bernkastel-Kues, located directly on the market square.
    Today's town hall facade is a magnificent work of the German late Renaissance by the Trier sculptor R.H. Hoffman (built 1608). Hoffmann's patron and sponsor was Archbishop Lothar von Metternich (1599 - 1623), whose coat of arms and the electoral cross of Trier adorn the town hall oriel next to the Bernkasteler city coat of arms. The bay window rests on a basalt column and carries a stone figure of Salvator mundi, the world savior with the globe, on the baroque curved roof.
    On the left corner pillar of the facade on the ground floor is still the pillory to which criminals were tied with chains and handcuffs to the public column of shame.

    The historic town hall impresses with its Renaissance architecture. Built in 1608 by the sculptor R. H. Hoffmann, whose patron, Archbishop Lothar von Metternich, placed his coat of arms in the bay window of the facade next to the Bernkastel city coat of arms. On the left corner pillar of the facade on the ground floor is still the pillory where offenders were handcuffed and chained to the public column of shame.
