Burg Eltz: Day Trip to One of Germany's Gems
Burg Eltz is magic. Seriously. I had seen so many pictures of this dreamy, Germanic castle, but they still didn't do it justice. It's like walking through a magical Disney story tale.
We arrived to Eltz Castle on a foggy, Sunday morning and I was a bit concerned the fog would block all the majestic views, but we were lucky enough that it made it that much more incredible. This 850+ year old "Burg" (there is a difference in burgs vs. schloss -- you can read about that here) is nestled so beautifully into the forest with streams surrounding it.
We went in the winter, so were unable to attend a museum tour, but it was still worth it. You could stay for hours walking the grounds, having a picnic outside the castle, and of course taking a few selfies.
If you're in Germany for some time, this is definitely worth the trip! I mean, what's Germany without visiting a few castles?
Pro Tip: Bring a pretzel and beer to enjoy outside of the castle!
Hope you enjoyed!
