Burg Eltz Eltz Castle is one of the most beautiful and best preserved castles in Germany. It lies in a romantic setting surrounded by an unspoiled landscape, inviting and majestic at the same time - like a fairy-tale castle come to life. Eltz castle has remained in the possession of the same family for over 800 years.
I think I probably have three of this map. Between our two tours in Germany we have toured every castle open to tourists, taken 4 cruises up the Rhine, and one time it took us 4 days to travel 26 miles during wine tasting season. Oh my! :)
✯ Lorelei Rock and view of the Rhine River bend near Sankt Goarshausen, Germany. According to German legend a beautiful young maiden, named Lorelei, who threw herself headlong into the river in despair over a faithless lover was transformed into a siren and could occasionally be heard singing on a rock along the Rhine River. Her hypnotic music lured sailors to their death. The rock soars 120 m (393ft) above the water line.
