If you want to experience the middle ages, also known as the dark ages, and nature in its most authentic form, go to the Eltz Castle in Germany. Centered in the middle of the Eltz forest with panoramic views that are incomparable, this is one of the most photographed castles around Europe. 

The enormous structure towers over a large rock and its eight towers are the main attraction soaring up to 35 meters into the sky. 

And, to many people’s surprise, the castle is still owned by the same family since the 12th century, nearly 33 generations ago.
