This character-filled Rhine castle is one of its most famous, rich in the legend of feuding brothers. A small, family-run hotel now operates in the 13th-century main tower.

Original features predominate – exposed stone walls, low beamed ceilings and a medieval dining room.

The restaurant serves up traditional German dishes in the ‘Knights’ Hall’, and there are tranquil valley views from the panorama terrace.

Crammed onto a 70m-high rock spur, with eight dramatic towers and views over the Elzbach Valley and River Eltz, it’s one of the world’s most beguiling castles.
