Photoup at Burg Eltz castle

Founded sometime before 1000 AD and still lived in by one of the three members of the Eltz family  Eltz Castle is considered the German knight’s castle par excellence. It has remained in the possession of the original family and was never destroyed.  

 Access to the interior is only allowed by guided tour, departing every 15 minutes in German and on-demand in English. The ticket also includes entry to the treasure vault, showcasing medieval weaponry and several impressive pieces of golden artworks and jewelry. No photography allowed.

 To get to Burg Eltz, drive to the car park and walk 800m, or hike 1.5 hours directly from Karden. On public transport, head two stops east by train to Moselkern, and hike around 5 km from there, following the signs to Burg Eltz; the first 30 minutes is along paved roads through the village, the second half a gentle uphill trail along and above the Elz River. Note that the station in Moselkern is unmanned and has no storage facilities, but the restaurants along the Mosel around 500m from the station will be happy to hold your bags if you eat your lunch there.
