Burg Eltz, Rheinland-Pfalz

My friends and I took a day trip to Burg Eltz, a castle in Rheinland-Pfalz. We made a short hike from the parking lot to the castle grounds. After a quick look around we hiked up the road for a scenic overlook, which we took in as the passenger shuttle went back and forth.

We had an excellent picnic of home-made curry and rice, and surprise chocolate birthday cake! We played by the river bank, wandered the castle’s treasury, and took a tour of the unoccupied parts of the castleThe castle is privately held and the rear section is currently occupied by the thirty-third generation of the Eltz family. from a very peculiar guide who stuck to his very formal script even though the tour group was only us.

We returned to Köln, enjoying so-called flapjacks and selinamosas en-route and listening to 70s classics.
