What You Can Expect

Eltz Castle Tour from Frankfurt with Rhine River Dinner

Admire the treasures of Eltz Castle!

This full-day tour begins in Frankfurt with a 2-hour drive west to the magnificent Eltz Castle, located on the hills of the Moselle River, just south of Koblenz. Eltz Castle is built on a large rock in the middle of the Elzbach Valley — breathtaking in appearance. It is considered to be the ultimate German knight’s castle and has remained in the possession of the original family throughout its entire history — a history of wealth, myths, famous personalities and great art.

Inside the castle, see many of its most popular and beautifully adorned rooms on a comprehensive walking tour. 

There’s the study, the dressing room, the hunting room, plus upper and lower halls, a kitchen and countless other rooms of significance, including the Treasury and Armoury, boasting world-class artworks in gold and silver. Outside, see the lush Eltz Forest, a surrounding nature reserve full of rare fauna and flora with a stunning view of the neighboring valley.

After the tour, on the trip back to Frankfurt, stop at a German restaurant along the Rhine River and watch the sun set while relaxing and enjoying a delicious dinner.

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!

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 !!
