Burg Eltz

Last fall we visited the lovely medieval Eltz Castle in Gemany about a 1.5 hour drive away from us. It is still owned by a branch of the same family that lived there in the 12th century, 33 generations ago and one of the few castles that has not been destroyed in in Rhineland.

There are two different walking options after parking in the designated area. We walked through the forest path going and up the main road which is much shorter on the way back. The castle is open in the warmer months from March - November and have paid guided tours inside. We actually got asked to leave the tour about 5 minutes after it started as Seba made a few sounds... so for sure don't even attempt it with a child under 2!! We did however finish off with some sekt from the mosel region from a local supplier. A nice end to the afternoon!
