Eltz Castle, Trier Reviews

  • Beautiful setting, more in a valley instead of on hill TOP! the castle is on the top of a hill but there are 3 hills higher on sides surrounding it! Water below on 2 sides! Forest all around, so pretty setting. The castle itself is still I'm amazing condion and has had some interior restoration. You can take a tour of some interior rooms and most of exterior. Worth the trip and the 15 minute gentle hike is really nice!

  • Do yourself a favour and visit this castle, owned by the same family since medieval times. A wonderful history and fantastic guided tour. Had lunch at the cafe and the food was good and prices are very good, they charge 4€ deposit on a beer glass but you can keep it or return it and has a picture on it. They even wrap a clean fresh one for you if you take it or get you deposit back. Where can you get a souvenir glass for 4€ in the world!. It’s complete and original having never been rebuilt or destroyed in wars. A lovely walk from the car park but there is a shuttle bus for only 2€ and entry is only 10€ so you don’t mind the extras. Highly Recommend a trip here if in the area, I expected a quick visit but 3 hrs later I was still enjoying the location.

  • Really impressive site. Even when it's really crowded weekends with good weather. But it's definitely worth a visit. As a small hint, use the hiking trail and stopover at the view site.

  • very impressive castle situated deep in the forest. Lots of history as the excellent guides will explain. Provides a brilliant insight to how a noble family would live in the 15 and 16 century. Beautifully restored and attractively presented. if you like history from this period, you will enjoy a visit here. has car park and small cafe

  • A beautiful castle in a beautiful environment! The tour and the museum is filled with jaw dropping art and furniture everywhere. Worth spending the day in and around the castle, and why not in the neighboring villages while you're there? Ticket for the inside tour and museum is 10 euro well spent, and parking is a few euro as well. Walking through the forest to the castle takes 15 minutes but there's also a bus that takes you down there. Walking along the road is shorter but very steep.
