Eltviller Burg (Castle Eltville)




Eltville is my birth place! It lies about 2 miles away from Kiedrich, directly at the Rhine river. This castle is right next to it.
Eltville is famous for its roses and for its wine.
Eltville am Rhein ist meine Geburtstadt. Es ist ca. 3 km von Kiedrich entfernt u ist bekannt fuer seine wunderschoenen Rosenanlagen u fuer den Wein.

Ja, diese Stadt ist vor allem um diese Jahreszeit bzw. wenn die Rosen blühen besonders schön. Eltville ist eine von 11 deutschen Rosenstädten

I've just been catching up on all your latest photos. Looks like it was an amazing trip! You come from a beautiful area. Is it hard to switch back to speaking German when you go home? It must be cool to speak two languages!!

Ich war auch schon mal in Elrville, dort ist es wirklich sehr schön! Es ist ja so nah von mir aus, aber ich komme dort einfach fast nie hin, schade.

What a beautiful castle and how wonderful to have been born near there-- and the Rhine. I have never been to Germany but I do speak a LITTLE German -- enough that I can read and mostly understand what is said.
