Eltz Castle- Wierschem, Germany

Processed with VSCOcam with m5 preset

My little wings were ecstatic to adventure out of the quiet town we normally stay at in Germany. Normally when I stay here I focus on some “me time.” I sleep a lot, I write, and I watch a lot of Netflix. This time, however, I eagerly jumped at the chance to ride shotgun (actually in the trunk part) to see something new!

Eltz Castle has been in the same branch of family for 33 generations since the 12th generation! It is a medieval castle situated on a mountain backdrop above the Moselle river. You can either take the shuttle from the parking lot to the entrance for 2 euros a person or walk down the hills for about 15 minutes. Halfway through there is also a lookout point perfect for some photos. The track back up the hills can be daunting, especially for those not accustomed to much exercise (me) as it’s quite steep for a little while, but once it’s over it is a fun accomplishment. You can also take a longer hike to the castle, which offers more amazing views of the castle! Its a great place to spend a couple hours of adventuring and picture taking. For today, however, I’m watching OITNB and studying for my recurrent which is in a few days. Wish me luck!

Stay golden, loves
