1.Burg Eltz Castle
It was built in the 12th century and is nestled within the trees in the rolling hills between Koblentz and Trier, Germany. It is currently still owned by the same Eltz family (33 generations later) that built the castle and some of the family members continue to live in parts of the castle to this very day! Burg Eltz is one of only two castles left standing on the left bank of the Rhine in the Rhineland-Palatinate area. The castle features a very unique plumbing system, especially for it’s time period, and all rooms in the castle can be heated (most castles can only heat two rooms).

The drive into town is through the hills and valleys of Germany’s beautiful countryside. Located in southern Hesse, Lindenfels been around since the 1100s and has been named “The Dragon City.” One of the town’s best attractions is the Dragon Museum.Another attraction is the ruins of the Lindenfels Castle, which was built in 1080.
