We are great fans to visit the most impressive castles in the world. In our trips we always mark them as essential visits, especially those that are less reconstructed and that is that one of the things that attract us the most is that they are in ruins or only a part of them is preserved. Its location and surrounding landscapes are usually the best in the country. For this reason we leave you a list of 10 most impressive castles in the world That we believe, you can't miss. We are still missing some of the list, but we hope to complete it one day.
1. Neuschwanstein Castle
Many say that Neuschwanstein Castle is the most impressive castle in the world. Commissioned by Louis II, also called The Mad King, it is not surprising that he was chosen by Walt Disney as a model to build the Sleeping Beauty Castle of Disneyland. The best perspective you can get from the castle is from the Maria Bridge (Marienbrücke), which is currently under construction. Ideally, make this getaway at two different times of the year and enjoy it first with the warmth of the central months of the year and then with snow, when the cold begins to appear in the area.
If you want to know it, we leave you the trip to Bavaria that we made, in which apart from visiting the Neuschwanstein Castle, we met some surrounding villages for which it is worth missing a few days.
If you do not have a car, a good option to visit the castle from Munich is to book a day trip to Neuschwanstein Castle by bus with a Spanish guide.
2. Eilean Donan Castle
On our trip to Scotland we had the visit to Eilean Donan Castle, one of the most cinematic castles in the world, in which sequences of films such as The immortals or for being the image of Scotch whiskey Cardhu. The surrounding landscape is just as incredible as the castle itself and it is that being located in the beautiful area of the Highlands, on Lake Duich, it is impossible to say otherwise.
