Great place to start your visit of Eltville. When I lived nearby, there were several festivals anchored at the Electoral Castle. The nearby rose garden is beyond fabulous!

The castle history and beautiful gardens are interesting here, but the bigger deal is the museum upstairs in the castle tower. On display are an Italian made, handset type printing press and a short tour of the history of letter press printing. This innovation from...More

Very nice location near the Rhine. There are several possibilties to eat and drink around the castle - better choice and quality than further up in the old town, at least on Sundays.

The Castle was easy to get to. Parking areas are available, but you must walk a little while. The rooms have information placards describing the exhibits. The rose gardens were my favorite....amazing fragrant.

I absolutely loved the garden. It was fun to walk around the castle and walk by the Rhein. The views were beautiful.
