Fairy Tale Castles

Ok, There are literally thousands of castles all over the world, even in the United States. But, this article is about fairy tale castles. This evokes a very specific feeling. I have perused hundreds of sites, and a dozen books looking for the castles the most represent the term "fairy tale". They have a certain other worldly and imaginative feel to them. They also have to be in fantasy shape today. No artists representations of what they used to look like. These are castles that you can visit.

 

Neuschwanstein
