Venturing four hours from Bruges into Germany, we encountered my most favorite site of the trip Eltz Castle. Years ago, this was one of my first travel destinations pinned on Pinterest. During the Spring in Europe, the sun sets around 8:30 pm and remains light till almost 9:00 pm. How awesome is that! We arrived around 7:00 pm to an empty car park (closed at 5:00 pm) and started our hike. Castles can typically be viewed from a distance but up to 30 minutes into the hike, it still was completely obstructed. However, the moment we turned around the last bend, we spied the most glorious picture. Peacefully perched on the hill was this 850 year old medieval castle still owned by members of the same family that resided here in the 12th century. I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoyed this magical creation.
