Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany
This is one of the most spectacular and the most visited (more than a million tourists per year) castle in Germany and looks like a dream turned into a reality. The castle was built in the 19th century by King Ludwig II who drifted apart from the world into his fantasy world and the castle is a perfect representation of that. This Roman-style castle was also the inspiration for Disney’s famous movie- The Sleeping Beauty. To add to your spectacle are the forests and mountains – in contrasting, vibrant colors – surrounding the castle, that will leave you speechless and in awe of the beauty of the castle.
Bran Castle, Romania
Located in Central Romania, the castle was built in the 14th century to protect the region from the Ottoman Empire. However, the castle was in a state of despair until it was restored as the summer house for Queen Marie. The castle is situated on a height of 60 meters, at the top of a mountain in the Transylvanian Alps. The architecture of the castle spellbinds and leaves its glorious image in your head of the top of the castle touching the height of the clouds and a ray of the sun glittering overhead, symbolizing greatness and humility all at once.
Château de Chantilly, France
Located almost an hour away from Paris, the Château de Chantilly is a precious gem in French history and dates back to the 19th century. This delicate, peaceful, and utterly impressive castle boasts of the Renaissance architecture. The castle was rebuilt after the French revolution which led to its destruction. The castle has a very magical and dreamy feel to it and will touch your soul with its bare beauty, surrounding gardens, the sound of the Nonette River flowing swiftly by. The castle also hosts Musée Condé which is home to the finest French paintings of the 15th and 16th centuries.
Eilean Donan, Scotland
This 13th Century castle in the Highlands of Scotland is a journey through time and history. This is the most famous castle in Scotland, as well as in the entire United Kingdom. This beauty of this medieval castle is enhanced by the majestic surrounding scenery where three sea lochs meet. The castle was destroyed in the 17century and was rebuilt in the 20th century from its ruins. Famous movies including Highlander and The World Is Not Enough (The James Bond film series) have shots of the castle.
