Eltville am Rhein

Eltville is an especially nice "pearl" of the Rheingau and is known as the city "of the wine and the roses". The historically significant city with its warily restored Old Town is an oasis of the leisureliness for wine friends and historians who want to enjoy scenery, wine and culture in Eltville.

You must visit, above all, the princely castle of Eltville with its passable tower in which are accommodated a gallery and a pressure workshop. The rose garden all around the castle inspires romanticist from all over the world not only during the "rose days" in May. The splendid nobility houses and town houses on the roses-covered Rhine shore and the historical castle Crass which became rebuilt ones only some years ago today hotel and restaurant are also especially worth seeing.

The vast complex of the Eltzer court invited to walks which was acquired 1629 of the counts to Eltz and was equipped with many works of art and the park with farm house of the baron Langwerth von Simmern, the native country of an ancient Rheingau wine dynasty. The way leads the visitors through ancient, paved Old Town lanes who present Biedermeier small half-timbered houses over and over again. The local Biedermeier association and the yearly champagne and Biedermeier party remind of this contemplative old time. Eltville is also close-knit with the name Gutenberg. The printer master lived and worked at times in the city and left some traces. And of course Eltville is also a wine city whose winegrowers invite not only in the absolutely nicely situated wine stand on the Rhine shore to delightful wines. Parties, concerts and cultural arrangements are convincing the whole year of the hospitality of Eltville.
