  1. Great list! I’ve been to 9 of them, including Neuschwanstein before they built the lookout point and it became overrun with tourists. Lesser known Hohenzellern Castle in Germany is more impressive my opinion. And when in Romania, don’t forget Pelisor Castle which is just a stone’s throw from Peles. I already had my eyes set on Swallow’s Nest and the Loire Valley Castles for next time – thanks for the other suggestions 🙂
