Know More about this tour

Leave central Frankfurt and travel by luxury coach to the hills of Moselle River, just north of Koblenz. Your destination is Eltz Castle, a glorious medieval fortress nestled deep in the woodland atop a 230-foot (70-meter) cliff. Rising out of the forest like a fairytale palace, the castle towers over the Elzbach Valley below, and its views are said to be some of the most spectacular in Germany.

After traveling for roughly 1.5 hours, hop off your coach and head inside the castle, seeing its key sites on a walking tour. Having been left intact for some 700 years, Eltz Castle remains furnished pretty much as it always had been, so its interior is a delight to see. Admire the living and sleeping rooms, and then walk through the lavish armory room, where nearly 500 pieces of jewelry and ceremonial weapons are displayed.

Wander through the hunting room, adorned with bear rugs, and hear tales of the servants who once worked in the castle while exploring the kitchens. Learn about the Eltz family who ordered the castle to be built in the 12th century, and hear how the different branches of the family built their own towers within the castle over the following 400 years.

Return to your coach and travel back toward Frankfurt, following the scenic Rhine River valley. Stop at a riverside restaurant and sit down to enjoy a dinner featuring local delicacies and wine (drinks at own expense). Savor the delicious meal while watching the sun go down over the Rhine, and then head back to your coach for the return trip to Frankfurt.

  • Very good tour and guide.

  • Amazing tour... amazing travel through Mosel River Valley, to know Eltz Castle, walk into Eltz Forest and dinning in a very nice restaurant seeing Rhine River.. Including pass into your car using Ferry boat crossing Rhine... Wonderful experience for my entire family.. Kids were interested at all.

  • This is a beautiful and well maintained Castle. Unless you like long uphill walks, a shuttle is available to get you within a short walk to the Castle Tour starting point. The guides set a pace that allows one to walk and climb the spiral stairs comfortably. A Cafe is available for snacks and meals.
    I would have like a more varied menu for the Rhine River Dinner considering the tour price. I thought I would be able to look out over the river. Instead, the River is below eye sight so it might as well have been dinner by a sidewalk.

  • Had a fantastic day at Eltz Castle. Our guide Jorge was very informative and made sure we were looked after. A delicious 3 course meal at a restaurant by the Rhine River topped it off. Highly recommend this tour. Jorge dropped us off at our hotel even though it was a bit out of his way. Money well spent.

  • From earlier reviews we knew that our group may be small. My wife, Thomas our guide, and I had a great tour. Obviously we had a very personalized Thomas a great guide and hit on probably more points than would normally be covered. The conversations covered much German history beside evolving into many other subjects. Time flew on the tour and the entire day was very enjoyable including our meal and other stops.

  • We had a private limousine for only 2 of us. Our guide Thomas was very nice and knowledgeable. The leisure walk from the car park to the castle was beautiful. Eltz Castle is beautiful and is not crowded. Our dinner at the restaurant was good, love the ice wine!

  • Beautiful setting for castle. Glad I got to see. Our driver, Thomas, was very nice and knowledgable which made the trip even better.

  • Diamond in the rough! Not many people know about this place, so it's a great not crowded tour!

  • Excellent tour, well organized, drive along the Rhine was a bonus and the dinner restaurant a great experience.

  • One of the best tours I have ever experienced. Me and my husband did the Eltz Castle tour on Sept 29 with the local tour operator via Viator. Our tour guide Peter Remus was very friendly, kind and knowledgeable.He toured us from Frankfurt to the Eltz Castle and around the beautiful surrounding areas. Excellent tour! Highly recommended. Peter, keep up the good work Lani and Chris
