Burg Eltz - where to stay nearby

Jump to last reply

Hi all. We will be driving to the Burg Eltz area from Wurzburg and would like to stay somewhere not too far from the castle for early touring the next day.

I read maitaitom's insights on his visit, from Rick Steves:

<<<I had read in Steves' book not to follow the signs to Burg Eltz, because those were longer hikes. Instead we ignored the Eltz signs in Moselkern and followed the signs to Munstermaifeld as he had suggested. We kept the faith because it seemed like we were headed in the wrong direction. However, in about seven kilometers we came to a T in the road. Signs to Burg Eltz were seen again. We made a left and went though Wierscheim and from that town's exit sign it was only 2km to the Burg Eltz Upper parking facility. It was an easy 10 -15 minute walk down to the castle from there<<<<

Should we look to stay near Munstermaifeld? We are looking for a quad room and woudl appreciate any suggestions.
