TTT 2010 04 Eifel D2 Rondrit Manderscheid
Published: 06/04/2019
rp 37 Burg-Eltz
This TTT starts in Manderscheid and is part of a 3-day tour in the (Volcano) Eifel. This TTT is mainly about beautiful roads and along the way there are plenty of opportunities to visit an old castle or fortress.
You can, for example, walk to:
Castles in Manderscheid: De Niederburg and Oberburg.
The castles in Manderscheid, the Niederburg and Oberburg are two beautiful castle ruins that are very worth seeing when you are in the Eifel. In the beautiful town of Manderscheid in the Volcanic Eifel are the two beautiful fortresses (castle ruins) Niederburg (below castle) and Oberburg (above castle). As the names suggest, the Oberburg is above the Niederburg. Two fortresses above each other, separated by the river Lieser that flows through Manderscheid. De Lieser used to be the border between the area of the Archbishop of Trier and the counts of Luxembourg.
Or you choose to visit the Rijksburcht in Cochem; The Cochem Empire Castle is an altitude castle located on a mountain cone in the German town of Cochem on the Moselle. The very iconic citizen's castle is 100 meters above the city and served as a toll castle in the Middle Ages. According to the latest investigations, the castle was probably erected around 1100.
And the route includes a photo opportunity at Burg Eltz:
Eltz Castle is a castle in Germany, located in Wierschem. It has been the residence of the Counts of Eltz since 1157. It was built for 500 years, creating both medieval and renaissance style buildings. There are eight residential towers around Slotplein.

Do not forget to refuel after this beautiful day before you are back at the hotel in Manderscheid, so that you can leave for the Netherlands with a full tank the next day.

Because I have driven this route myself, this route gets 5 stars.
