Burg Eltz is about a 2 hour drive from GK and is located between Koblenz and Trier. Construction on the castle started before 1157 and was completed around 1530. It is one of only a few castles in the Rhineland-Palatinate that has never been destroyed. Tours through the castle run every 15 minutes. The tour takes you through two of the three family houses that make up the castle. The third house is still used by the owning family. There is also a treasury room that you can wonder through while you are waiting on your tour to begin.
