Leaving Cologne, we went towards Eltz castle. There are not many public transportation, so we rented a car. We rented a car in Cologne, and returned it in Frankfurt.
ケルンの後は、エルツ城へ向かいました。公共機関だと本数が少なく、時間の融通が利かなそうでしたので、私たちはケルンからレンタカーを借りてエルツ城へ向かいました。Europcar ケルン支店でレンタカーを借り、フランクフルトで乗り捨てのプランです。

In the season we went to, only guided tours are permitted to enter Eltz castle. Thus we knew we couldn’t get in the castle, but we wanted to see the beautiful castle with our own eyes. Parked our car, and we walked about 15 minutes.

Going out the forest, we finally saw this beautiful castle!

When you see Eltz castle from top of the mountain, you realize the castle is in the deep Eltz Forest. It is a great experience the Middle Ages and nature. It was really breathtaking experience for me.

Eltz Castle has remained in the possession of the original family and was never destroyed. It has been in possession of the Eltz family for more than 800 years.  エルツ城は、ドイツの多数あるお城と違い、戦争中などにも一度も傷つけられることがなく、800年以上の歴史があるそうです。12世紀の着工から一度も陥落したことがない、本物の中世の古城とのこと。


We went there about 7am, but we are not only person there. Some people also were there and took pictures. It is not accessible, but totally worth it! 早朝にお城を見に行く人は私たちだけかと思っておりましたが、他にも3組ほどいらっしゃいました。ドイツ3大美城お城と言われているお城なので、外から見るだけでも美しさに圧倒され、十分満足でした。 アクセスは良いとは言えないですが本当に行ってよかったです。
