Experience the Eltz Middle Ages and pure nature! The family is proud of their stone fairytale and they’d love to show it to you! Burg Eltz is different. She survived all wars unscathed. It has been owned and cared for by a single family since its construction over 850 years ago until today. It has an incomparable architecture and original furnishings from eight centuries. It offers an armory and treasury of world-class gold and silver work. She stands on a rock and still lies in the valley. It is embedded in the Eltzer Wald, a nature reserve of great scenic beauty and full of rare plants and animals. It is also in the midst of an attractive hiking area, with the award-winning dream path “Eltzer Burgpanorama” and with other beautiful trails for every need.
