Eltz Castle (Burg Eltz) and Koblenz Insider Private Tour
Get to know one of the oldest towns of Germany by taking a walking tour around the historical Old Town. The charming and romantic streets between the St. Castor's Basilica and "Liebfrauenkirche" represent today's main tourist attraction of Koblenz. Of course, the sightseeing tour would not be completed without a visit to the Monument of Emperor Wilhelm I at The German Corner.
It remained unscathed by wars. Its architecture has no comparison and many of the original furnishings of the past eight centuries still remain in place. There is a Treasury and Armoury boasting world-class artworks in gold and silver. It towers high on a large rock, but is still in a valley.
The only hill castle on the Rhine that has never been destroyed. It has been lived in for over 700 years and thus represents an ever-changing and developing building complex that has been growing into its present shape over the centuries.
