Once upon a time...

The Eltz Castle (Burg Eltz in German) is a German medievel castle close to the cities of Trier and Koblenz. There are many impressive aspects about this castle. The geographical location for once is very special. The castle is situated in an elevation in the middle of a valley with a stream around it, surrounded by nature on all sides. A visit there is like a time travel to the 12th century, with no urban noise, light or any other sign of modern civilization (besides the road to the castle...). Having visited several other european castle, I know this is a very rare feature. Another impressive fact is that the castle is still owned by a branch of the original family that built it (33 generations ago!!!). It is a beautiful scenery and definetely worth a visit.
