Once upon a time in Germany: Castles, ghosts & royalty

If there's one thing Germany does well, it's castles. On this week's Meet the Germans, host Rachel Stewart heads to Burg Eltz to catch up with the count of the castle — and a spooky ancestor.

Neuschwanstein, Hohenzollern, Wartberg... Germany boasts some pretty impressive castles. Rachel has been looking into the country's royal history — and has finally found out the difference between the words "Burg" and "Schloss"!

Rachel Stewart moved from the UK to Germany in 2016. As a relative newcomer she casts a fresh eye over German clichés and shares her experiences of settling into German life. Every two weeks she explores a new topic — from saunas to asparagus or the ins and outs of German small talk.
