In addition to German, he definitely speaks English (having worked in the United States for a number of years) and French.
What are the other three languages I cannot tell. Perhaps one of the other members of the forum could help you.

He once mentioned in an interview that he speaks Spanish. Iirc, he mentioned that one of his sisters lives in Spain and he often spends time there.

Could one of them be Italian, since his mother Carolina was born an Italian Countess?

Thanks for posting. Does anyone know if this lucky Von und zu Eltz is of the same family that owns the stupendous Burg Eltz? If so, there will be no problem spending the Heineken fortune:|

The castle still belongs to the zu Eltz family, the current owner being Karl, Graf zu Eltz.
Stephanie and Karl appear to be second cousins once removed; Stephanie's great-grandfather and Karl's grandfather were brothers.

Stephania's great-grandfather was a brother of Karl's great-grandfather, thus Stephania and Karl are third cousins:
Friedrich (1823-1900) - Johann (1860-1906) - Karl (1896-1922) - Jakob (1921-2006) - Karl (1948-)
Friedrich (1823-1900) - Erwein (1863-1936) - Peter (1909-1992) - Alexander (1947-) - Stephania (1984-)

On a different note, Stephania's paternal grandmother was Countess Henriette von und zu Eltz, who was born a Princess von und zu Liechtenstein (and who passed away last year); this means that Stephania is a first cousin once removed of the present Reigning Prince of Liechtenstein, Hans Adam II.

Thank you Mafan for the more detailed information.
I appear to have missed one generation in Karl's ancestry.

Burg Eltz, Rhineland-Palatinate

As Burg Eltz has been mentioned, it's a good opportunity to add some pictures.
The castle is still owned by a branch of the same family that has lived there since the 12th century.
The current owner, Karl, Graf and Edler von Eltz, Faust von Stromberg, represents the 33rd generation to inhabit the family home.

Stolberg-Stolberg

Countess Elisabeth zu Stolberg-Stolberg died on 29 May, eight days after her 93rd birthday.

She was born at Innsbruck, Austria on 21 May 1919, the eldest of eight children of Archduchess Hedwig of Austria (1896-1970; granddaughter of Emperor Franz Josef I and Empress Sissi by their youngest daughter, Archduchess Valerie and her husband Archduke Franz Salvator of the Tuscan branch) and her husband, Count Bernhard zu Stolberg-Stolberg (1881-1952).

Athough she was the eldest, all of her younger siblings are deceased, except for the youngest, Countess Magdalena (b.1930), who married Martin, Baron von Kripp zu Prunberg und Krippach.

Countess Elisabeth leaves 15 nieces and 16 nephews with their families. One niece, one nephew and one great-niece predeceased her.

Countess Elisabeth never married and was later Mother Maria Bonifacia at the OSB Benedictine Mission.

It appears that there was a mistake about the date of death of Countess Marie Elisabeth; she didn't die on 29 May - as it was firstly reported - but on 9 June 2012 in Vanves (France).

The Countess was a Benedectine nun since 17 November 1951, under the name of Sister Marie-Boniface.
She has been a missionary in Vietnam for 21 years and in Madagascar for 9 years.
She has been ill since last October.
