Love hiking this trail! I've done it multiple times and it was great every single time. The parking lot at the trailhead costs 2 Euros for the whole day but during afternoons it's often filled, so you have to park in the village somewhere. On weekends there are often a lot of people especially on the first part to the castle, after the castle there were less people though. All in all, definitely recommend the trai!

Agree totally with Brett’s review. It’s a good summary The trail is well marked but there are a number of eroded social trails off the main trail (in the steeper section past in the woods past the castle and the inn). I took two of these accidentally for a few yards. I should have been paying better attention Castle is really lovely and worthwhile and a nice break in the middle of the hike (there are restaurants/refreshments too!)

First to Review

Pretty good trail. As of September 2018, parking near the trailhead costs 2 Euros for the whole day (lot open 0800-2000), it is the same cost as parking at the Castle Eltz tourist parking area. The parking area does have a Wassercloset (bathroom). The begining and ending portion of the trail has quite a bit of hiking in open area farm fields, and you can see farmers actively working their fields with tractors. The rest of the hike is mostly covered by trees along a creek. If you take the trail counter clockwise (as intended) the last portion has a pretty steep climb (30-40 degree incline) for about 1km. If you dont hike often, you would rate this as a hard trail because of this. This can be mitigated by taking the trail in the opposite direction (clockwise), just watch your footing. The trail is well very well marked, you should not have any worries about getting lost!
