Owned by the same family who began its construction nearly 850 years ago, Eltz Castle is one of the best-preserved castles in Germany. The ornate, fairy tale-like fortress sits atop a 70 m (230 ft) rock outcropping. It's built of imposing stone walls and topped with colorful, spire-like roofs. You can explore more than 100 different rooms and courtyards, including the family quarters still used today. Climb to the other sections of the structure to see sweeping views of the forested hills and river valleys. Check the website for special events and guided tours.

Best castle I visited in southern Germany. It was busy but not over run and the tours were small and interesting. You don't get to see all the castle but the tours aren't expensive so it's ok. You have to walk from the car park and it is a bit of a walk when it's hot but it is worth it. Such a unique castle.
This is my all time favorite castle in Germany. Beautiful. Plenty to see inside and out. Nice little tour. Wish you could take pictures of all of the interior but you can't.
