Burg Eltz Castle is one of the best preserved castles in all of Germany. Begun in the 1100s, it was built in stages for over 500 years. The family that built the castle still owns this magnificent residence. Tours are available from April to November and cost around US$7
We ended up on a German-language tour... lucky for us, the guide gave us an abbreviated English explanation after the in-depth German monologue at each stop.
There are a gift shop and two restaurants in the castle.
A stop at Burg Eltz is a must when driving from Koblenz up the Mosel to Cochem or Trier.
