This German Castle Has Been One Family’s Home For 850 Years

The Eltz family has owned this spectacular medieval structure in Wierschem, Germany, since 1157, and has kept residence at the estate for 34 generations.

Although none of the Eltz clan currently occupies the 120-room castle full time, it is open to visitors, who travel from all over to witness the vast collection of historic treasures, including weapons, armor and art.
