Germany Gate of Eltz Castle, Wierschem

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
Eltz Castle is one of the most famous castles in Germany for a good reason. The beautiful architecture lies within a valley, surrounded by woods and a river you can walk down to. The mood during foggy mornings is just unbelievably good, so this is something you really shouldn't miss, especially during autumn when the trees are colourful and there is a higher chance for fog.
Also, try to capture the milky way in the summer. It´s worth a try.

Important notes: This castle is privately owned and therefore please be respectful while being there, especially outside the opening times because there are people who live there. Photos or videos are not available for commercial usage and the owner usually denies all requests.

Photography Tips

Use the leading lines of the ground towards the castle with a very low focal distance. Especially the stones on the left part of the way are pointing to the front door as well as the walls. Also, be aware of the leading line in the middle.
If you want a very big castle you can also use the stairs nearby to get even closer to the ground or just use the wall in your frame.

Travel Information

You can easily get there by car. There is a parking space for Eltz Castle which costs a few Euros. The walk to the castle takes about 10 minutes, but you can also use a special bus to get there for some bucks. The footpath is more beautiful and easier to walk, but also a lot longer than the street the bus uses and that you can also walk down there.

Special tip: If you are very early for your sunrise photo there is no parking fee.
Crowd Factor A decent amount of people
Best Timing Sunrise during fall
Sunrise & Sunset 07:55 - 17:33 | current local time: 23:24

Beautiful castle indeed! I was there 14 years ago on an exchange trip, but remember it well :)

Oh, that's cool! I also like it so much and it isn't that far away from me. But to be honest castles are beautiful, but we have so many of them that most of us don't appreciate them as we should. Never was aware about the fact, that there are no really old castles in North America until I spoke with some guys from Chicago... If you are ever back in Germany let me know and I will show you some other beautiful castles! :-)

Yeah, over here we only have military forts, nothing like the castles in Europe. I've seen quite a few castles in Germany, all in the southern half of the country though. I need to visit the northern half!
