Bernkastel-Wittlich is a district in
Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. It is bounded by (from the north and clockwise) the districts of Vulkaneifel, Cochem-Zell, Rhein-Hunsrück, Birkenfeld, Trier-Saarburgand Bitburg-Prüm.
The district was established in
1969by merging the former districts of Bernkastel and Wittlich.
The district is situated on both banks of the
Moselle River, which crosses the territory from southwest to northeast. On either sides the country is rising to the mountain chains of the Eifelin the north and the Hunsrückin the south. A great number of affluents come from the Eifel mountains and join the Moselle River. In the very south of the district there is the Erbeskopf (818 m), the highest peak of the Hunsrück and of Rhineland-Palatinate.
