Fairytale dream castle
In the romantic Elzbach Valley, close to Moselkern and Treis-Karden, lies the Sleeping Beauty Castle of the Moselle region, Eltz Castle. Thanks to its hidden location, the castle was spared any warlike destruction and offers the visitor a picturesque sight, built on a slate rock, surrounded by the Elzbach and framed by wooded steep slopes. Every year on April 1st the castle opens its castle rooms and treasure chamber to art lovers and holiday guests from all over the world. Until November 1, guided tours take place daily from 9.30 am to 5.30 pm. Many of the interiors have their original furnishings and contain numerous treasures, furniture, paintings, household goods and armour. In the treasure chamber you can admire valuable gold and silversmith's work, jewellery, porcelain, clothing and weapons.
