We took the train to Moselkern and then did the 5 Km walk up. Make sure you carry water. There is a restaurant half way up. The castle is amazing, well preserved and with plenty of things to see. The english guided tour was excellent. Its the best preserved castle I have seen in Germany.

Just a short drive up from Cochem on the Mosel river and well worth the drive. Depending on the time of year, it is best to get there early. Yes, it is kind of in the middle of nowhere, but at the peak of the tourist season you WILL sit in line for 30 minutes or more to pay for... More

Went here with my girlfriend the other day wow what a stunning castle to look at. It's €2 for parking then about a 15 minute walk down to the castle. For a tour around its €10 the tours are good and are in either English or German. The tour itself is ok don't get to see to many rooms inside... More

Amazing castle and nature. The walk to the castle is 20 min from the parking area, no need to take the shuttle bus. The castle tour was really good, our tour was great (excellent pronunciation of English!). If you have a drink (coffee etc) in the restaurant you pay for the mug but can keep it as a souvenir, which... More

The trip to Burg Eltz was one of the highlights of our German holiday which we took in May 2016. We were staying in Boppard and took a train up till Moselkern (via Koblenz) and then walked till the castle. The walk / hike itself added to the charm. Out of the entire 5 km (from the station to the... More

No doubt this is a Five Star attraction. I've visit twice and loved both visits. The wonderful thing about Burg Eltz is that it was never destroyed. You are visiting a real castle dating to Middle Ages that is genuine in every way. This castle is very close to Koblenz and the drive along the Mosel is wonderful including views... More

This is one of the most beautiful castles in the region. Please note that you can not wander the castle by yourself and you must use a guided tour (in german and if you are lucky in english). We where lucky that even though it was busy and we where told there would be no english tour anymore that day/time... More

It is a very nice castle. You must pay for the tour, it is worth it. You cannot take photos inside the castle. There is a shuttle bus from the parking lot to the castle - it is worth it. It costs 2euros each way. It is a short drive from Cochem if you are staying there.
