Burg Eltz

Burg Eltz

56294 Wierschem, Germany

Eltz Castle is a medieval castle nestled in the hills above the Moselle River between Koblenz and Trier, Germany. It is still owned by a branch of the same family that lived there in the 12th century, 33 generations ago and it remained unscathed by wars.

Highlights

  • The inner courtyard: telling a colorful story of the cohabitation of three branches of the Eltz family in a very confined space.
  • The armory and treasury: considered one of the most important collections of its kind in Europe
  • The knight's room: the most important room in the castle with important suits of armor and carvings of jester’s masks, which symbolize freedom of speech.
  • The Rodendorf Kitchen: It is the most vivid representation of medieval life. The kitchen dates from the 15th century and has remained largely unchanged.
