    You know you are looking at skeleton of castle… Castles were rendered white and painted…
    They were decorated ..
    Some even have insulation although that is rare…

    It would be wonderful if they rented rooms like a VRBO. I think it would fantastic to spend a week there.

    This girl guide in this episode talked alot of nonsense. Who is going to live in here? very unrealistic question. It will never ever be happening. Shallow woman. Try to learn some history and architecture and culture before getting assigned to this job. She doesn't even have the right direction of asking questions!

    10:58 This chopping block, if it was placed there before the house was completed in 1311, is at least 711 years old! That means also, estimated by the diameter of the block, the tree that it is made of would have been alive around the year 1161! I think that is just fascinating to think about.

    Greetings from Burg Eltz. The video is worth watching, if nothing else than to see an American walking.

    It would be a nice place to visit and maybe stay a night or two but not very practical to live in since it needs continuous upkeep and a large staff. I quite impressed that these castles are so well built that they've survived many centuries. The count seemed to be very kind and humble. 💫

    Remember, back in the days, Americans bought rocks from a German castle ruins and shipped them across the ocean to build their own castle in America, therefore have some history/culture.

    Clearly it doesn't worked.

    A real treasure of an estate. Glad to see it is maintained for future generations to enjoy.

    We visited Burg Eltz in early seventies. The day we visited the German Air Force was flying simulated sorties and runs up and down the valley with fighter jets. The contrast was stunning. One of the most beautiful and well preserved castles.

    Would I trade my three-bedroom home, with indoor plumbing, central heating and air conditioning, TV, computer and telephone, and modern kitchen for a cold, drafty castle? Heck no.

    Rich people who would love you to fund their rich lifestyle into the future. Saving some stone box with some filigree is worthy of your money? Let their neighbors pay for it.

    While Germans live in rented houses or enslaved to some mortgage, this guy has a castle and other properties. The social differences in Germany are simply brutal.

    Cool video! The owner was really informative. When I was younger I thought bigger was better. These days I think it is a bad idea to live in a place that is larger than what you need. Too much cleaning, maintenance, expense. Even if you were really rich and can afford to hire help, you lose your privacy.

    I never imagined castles to be luxurious. Palaces were where I believed all the servants and comfort was to be had, so the fairytale life questions felt kind of weird.

    Hmmm this video really didn’t accomplish much in terms of history or even seeing the castle – this family is very prominent even in the Catholic Church.

    The castle is amazing. The host is somewhat obnoxious though. Would probably prefer Hohenzollern or Hohenschwangau.

    Places like this always are always fascinating. They make you wonder how life back then was, the people who lived in them, the secrets, the memories… I wonder why the count had a change of trousers in the middle of the tour

    Loved this guy. Very humble and appreciative of the position he lucked into. Seems to be taking good care of the place and obviously likes to share his knowledge… props.
