Eltz Castle Reviews & Ratings

  • Stunning castle still in incredible shape. No pics inside due to antiquities. Tickets 10 euro. Parking 2 euro. Shuttle bus 2 euros each way. If you don't mind the walk you could save a little. It is a bit of a hike. Our tour guide was originally from Maine and of course spoke great English. I really liked this castle. And don't forget your ticket gets you into the treasury as well.

  • This is my all time favorite castle in Germany. Beautiful. Plenty to see inside and out. Nice little tour. Wish you could take pictures of all of the interior but you can't.

  • Lovely place among a forest... The restaurant here serves good food. Take the guided tour highly recommended

  • Best castle I visited in southern Germany. It was busy but not over run and the tours were small and interesting. You don't get to see all the castle but the tours aren't expensive so it's ok. You have to walk from the car park and it is a bit of a walk when it's hot but it is worth it. Such a unique castle.

  • Great and informative, English and Deutsch guided tours. Awesomely priced souvenirs. Very nice staff. Delicious food. No pictures inside the castle during tours... but still great experience. Strollers are possible, as we saw many. But most were stowed away. Best to use a carrier for your children. We did and very successfully at that.
