Hohenwerfen Castle – Salzburg – Austria
Perching up atop the valley of Salzachtal and surrounded by the Alps, is the Castle of Hohenwerfen which has withstood the test of time for over 900 years and brings to us the sagas of medieval defences and wars. The Hohenwerfen Castle is situated at a distance of about 40 kilometres from Salzburg and is known to be the “sister” of the Hohensalzburg Castle of 11th century.

Mont Saint Michel Castle – France
Have you ever seen Victor Hugo’s “Pyramid in the Ocean”? If not, then the Lower Normany in the North of France awaits you because that is the home to UNESCO’s World Heritage site of Mont Saint Michel. It is a rocky island with the Abbey of St. Michel and the Mont Saint Michel Castle which is worth a watch in France apart from the other popular tourist destinations of Paris and Versailles.

Neuschwanstein Castle – Germany
Almost all of us, at some point of time in our childhood, grow up listening to the fairy tales and often end up saying fairy tales never happen in reality. But, the Sleeping Beauty Castle of Disneyland is pretty unlike our notions. It is an inspiration from the larger than life Neuschwanstein Castle of Germany which every year draws about 1.4 million foot falls as tourists.
