Eltz Castle (called in German: Burg Eltz) is a medieval castle located in the hills above the Moselle between Koblenz and Trier, Germany. Bürresheim Castle, Eltz Castle and Lissingen Castle are the only castles on the left bank of the Rhine in Rhineland-Palatinate which have never been destroyed.
The oldest part of the castle begun in the 9th century as a simple manor with an earthen palisade. By 1157 the fortress was built up and an important part of the Holy Roman Empire under Frederick Barbarossa, because of its location near the trade routes of the Moselle Valley and the Eifel region. In the years 1331–1336, there occurred the only serious military conflicts occurred at this castle. During the Eltz Feud, the lords of Eltzer, together with other free imperial knights, opposed the Archbishop and Elector Balduin von Trier. The Eltz Castle was put under siege and possible capture and was bombarded with catapults by the Archbishop. The siege lasted for two years, but ended only when the free imperial knights and lords of Eltzer had given up their imperial freedom.
