Eigentlich trug die Burg den Namen Burg Neukatzenelnbogen. Der Volksmund hat das auf Burg Katz verkürzt.
Seit 2002 ist die Burg Katz Teil des UNESCO-Welterbes Oberes Mittelrheintal.

This is castle Eltz.
Often considered as the most beautifulst castle in Germany. But I guess there are a couple of realy outstanding ones, especially in the south of Germany.
But nevertheless this castle realy a his own beauty.
Situated in a small, tiny valley it is surrounded by forrest on each side. If you walk down the trail from the parking area to the castle it suddenly appears out of the forrest. I was searching pretty long for a composition of this beauty that is rarly seen.
Enjoy your day and thanks for looking, voting, sharing and maybe just having fun.
