Eltz Castle

This fairytale castle with its many stacked and interlocking gables and oriels, roofs and miniature towers sits in splendour atop a rocky cliff in the Eltzbach valley. One of Germany's most beautiful castles, it took more than 500 years to build and is still completely intact.

Knights, ladies and noblemen
Colourful half-timbered miniature towers, domed roofs and interlocking oriels add to the romantic atmosphere of this fairytale medieval castle, which sits in splendour on a steep, rocky cliff surrounded by unspoilt countryside. The inner ward is a unique reflection of the castle's remarkable architectural diversity. Over the centuries, the castle has remained completely intact and is still in excellent condition.

See the past brought to life at the local history museum where a number of old shops, such as a colonial goods store and a bakery, have been lovingly recreated. Visitors can enter and look around each store at their leisure. Exploring the tunnels of the German slate mine under Genovevaburg Castle is always a special treat. The history of slate mining in the Eifel region is illustrated here using a vibrant mix of information and entertainment.
