Eltz Castle is a spectacular sight, and well worth the walk (even if it is just from the car park). Built on a commanding promontory, the castle has stood in some form or other since the 15th century. The gift shop is fairly expensive but I think that's to be expected, however the staff are friendly and very helpful. The guided tours of a large portion of the castle (part is private as the Eltz family still own the castle) are interesting and engaging, the guides are very knowledgeable and friendly. The castle has an armoury and treasury containing items collected by the Eltz family over the years, all in fantastic condition. Some more information could be given about some items, but there is enough to get you started. The castle is maintained to a very high level, the insides are well kept and the paintings and tapestries well cared for. The grounds are litter free and the toilets on site near enough spotless for the number of visitors using them. There is a shuttle bus service from the car park for two euro, and two reasonably priced food outlets in the castle too.
This is one of those fairy tale style castle's in an unusual position as it isn't high up but in a valley! From the car park there is a 1.3km walk through pleasant forest into the valley, alternatively there is a shuttle bus which runs you down to the castle for 2 euros one way. There's a couple of eateries there and the lower one has more seating than the upper one, the entrance fee is twenty euros which includes a guided tour either in German or English, you need to ask though in the castle for an English tour, the receptionist explains where to ask, the staff are helpful and courteous.
Travel on the Rhine or Mosel river and you'll quickly realize castles (Burgs) are abundant. Situated on private property Burg Eltz draws you in starting with a spectacular view walking down from the parking lot. If you don't want to walk the shuttle runs continuously and will get you down easily. The gift shop and ticket counter personnel are informative. The tour is good, though you're not supposed to take pictures inside. There is food and outdoor seating. Pretty much a great place to spend an afternoon.
The restaurant has a small but delicious menu. The castle is beautiful. Walk down the footpath. The views are worth it.
An awesome castle to go to. The guided tours are very helpful to understand the history of the castle. The restaurant has affordable prices and local meals. The castle has a basement sort of area to see old swords, cups, and other things the castle used. The tour doesn't let you take pictures. The castle has a gift shop. The castle as a whole is well maintained. I recommend it.
