In 1925 it was renamed Brauneberg to promote the famous locations. The total area of vines is over 300 hectares. The two famous individual layers of Brauneberger are located here Juffer and Juffer sundial who was already the French emperor Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821) was one of the pearls of the Moselle region.
