Not nearly as crowded as other German fortresses such as Neuschwanstein, Eltz Castle is an outstanding medieval stronghold. As you explore it, you’ll feel like you’re in a movie!
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.
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!
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
This was a great tour, and dinner on the Rhine was wonderful!
Amazing tour by private limo for only 3 of us, attentive driver,, the castle is a knights residence castle still owned by the 38 thh generation family, filled with medieval treasures a sight not to be missed, still fully preserved we went through all the rooms climbing up spiral sraicases, just loved the casrle.
, then drove along the beautiful river moselle and at the point where it meets the rhine, we crossed by ferry and had a wonderful dinner along the rhine, wonderful day
Overall the tour was great, good to see a castle in original state, dinner ordinary and can be improved.
Absolutely fabulous experience and a most discerning tour guide as well as a tour company that went ahead with the tour even on a day with just the two of us on tour. We had a private car to ourselves and the tour guide went out of his way to show us two other castles plus some wine tasting !!
