One of many famous photographed castles in the world. Parking is available cost 2€. From the car park it’s a short 5-10min walk down a sealed road which overlooks the castle. Perfect for taking photos. The grounds are free to enter. Toilets are also available....More

You walk a quiet paved winding path from the more than adequate parking all the while passing the occasional apple tree then a small chapel. Round the corner and there sits a castle that sits as if its floating above the ground. Amazing to see...More

Burg Eltz is a beautiful castle nestled in a beautiful setting, and it's worth a visit for the view alone. We would have liked to have walked up the mountain paths, but due to both rain and time constraints, we took the shuttle, which saved...More

Out of the way but only 1 family has ever owned it. It is rick Steve's favorite. We were on a Viking river cruise & did a day trip - taxi, train, taxi, tram bus back to taxi, taxi, train, taxi. Well worth the planning.

Staying in nearby Weirshem and hiking to Burg Eltz is the way to visit this beautiful place. Enjoy well marked Traumpfade paths in the woods and surrounding farmlands with several picnic spots on offer, complete with benches and wooden tables. Exiting into the castle grounds...More

We used google maps to get us to the car park which was very accurate. Once at the car park the two routes are signed and there is a person at the car park who can also assist you.
