Eltz Castle, Trier Reviews

  • Gorgeous castle! It was closed when I visited (end of Jan), but you can still walk down check out the outside grounds. And get some amazing pics!

  • As beautiful as picture. We visited during fall time in the words the most busy time to visit ,long queue of cars and buses so we got down from our bus and decided to cover rest by foot ..when we reached at a point from where castle can be seen like looking at the picture.. it was mersmerising and breath taking. On our way down to castle ,saw newly wedded couples were getting clicked..very beautiful castle in the middle of the valley

  • This was fun! Really beautiful. Great history. The castle has stayed in the same family...cool piece of history. The walk was pretty easy from the parking area. The path is wide enough that if you need to stop and take a break you could do so, without being in the way. Really pretty trek into the castle and a much better view of the castle. (I think) Our tour guide was awesome. He was professional and pleasant. (The last photo is the view from walking the trail from parking.)

  • One of the most visited castles in the world, but worth the crowds. Unique architecture and history. Be prepared to walk a couple of kilometers from the parking lot. Very crowded parking spaces.

  • Very beautiful castle in the middle of a valley which you can only reach by foot... When you walk around the bend and get a first glimpse of the Castle it's a mesmerising sight to behold. We took a different path down a steep decent but you better can follow the footpaths which lead you to the front gate. Sadly it isn't opened during the winter months but just to see it from the outside was good enough for us... Enjoy!!
