Fascinating Castles of Europe

There is something about the castles which has always fascinated me. Castles are the closest I could get to when I thought of fairy tales as a child and always thought of them as the home of the fairies. Though my thoughts about the castles have changed but they still fascinate me as they did years back. These splendid structures have had me awe-struck many a time and every castle holds a special place but as we are listing down top castles of Europe we have to leave out a few. So, here are the Top 5 Castles of Europe:
Castle Neuschwanstein, Germany: Built in 1800s in Bavarian Alps, Castle Neuschwanstein is nothing short of breath taking. Designed on medieval architecture this castle has inspired Disney’s Sleeping Beauty castle in Florida. Every year it sees around 1.5 million visitors from all over the globe.
