This 12th century castle is absolutely beautiful! We took the longer route, which was nice and scenic, except you couldn't see the castle until the very last minute of the 20 minute hike (downward). We got there when it closed, so there weren't many tourists,...More

The drive to the castle was kind of confusing in the sense that you were driving through flat farmland and trying to reconcile the pictures of the castle. But eventually there it is, in the middle of the forest. The shuttle from the parking lot...More

This castle is like something out of a fairy tale. Parking is 2 Euro. To get to the castle, you can either take a shuttle (2 Euro per person per trip) or hike one of two ways (through the forest or down the bus path)....More

This is small hidden gem. As it is off the track it hasn't got the numbers like other castle. Nice walk through the forest until it is found. There is also a shuttle bus to it. Nice surroundings and a little river for children to...More

This castel is absolutely worth visiting! Tha castle is still owned by the same Family Eltz and was never rebuilt or destroyed. In comparison to the castle in Cochem this one is the authentic one!

Highly recommended for the castle's 900-year history and interior displays with lavish furnishings. The castle is still owned by one side of the family and has maintained its beauty throughout the ages. Although the walk through a natural setting looked inviting, we took the shuttle...More

Stopped here on our way to Koblenz from Trier. Cannot imagine how this castle was built! Worth the entrance fee. Take the shuttle unless you are young and fit. The tour was informative and a great opportunity to see this castle built in the 1400...More

We arrived at the entrance to the car park but the man on the gate spoke little English. We paid 2 euros to park and walked back towards the man to look at the signage. There are two routes, one a hiking route that is...More

I had never visited a Castle in Europe as showed on some movies and always interested on historical places. This was most amazing experience getting in touch with a well preserved castle keeping original things from more than 400 years ago.. Highly recommended..

My friend and I drove here the other day and had the most wonderful time. We walked down to the castle where the bus drives down which turned out to be the best for the viewpoint and walked the hiking path back to the parking...More

That castle is the The Imperial Castle in Cochem I think it has another name, but this is what comes up on the website. We didn't get to go to that one so we'll have to go back. 😊

I believe you can search the Koblanz area for Taxi/private driver. Once you arrive at Burg Eltz entrance there is a shuttle bus to the Castle. This is a 'must visit' Castle--amazing how nice it is. English tour guides are... More
