… I was in the German state of Rheinland-Pfalz with some friends for an extended weekend. While nearby, we made a trip to the castle Burg Eltz. This construction of this iconic castle was started back in the 12th century. Since then, it was never conquered or destroyed.
As expected, you can find the castle on top of a hill. But, this hill is surrounded by many other hills which are even higher. So, you can’t see it from a distance and you can’t oversee the surrounding area. This is very different from other castles.
More of my images can be seen at my own blog.
