The “WOW” Castles In Europe You ABSOLUTELY Have To See

There are two types of castles in Europe: those that are ridiculously awesome and those that are absolutely fantastic. Every castle has a certain “wow” factor that makes visiting them an unforgettable experience. It feels so great to sink into the atmosphere of medievalty, imagine the life we only know from books now, touch the old stones and giggle at the absense of normal toilets (seriously, how did people live before?!).

I can’t repeat this often enough, but I’m a huge fan of castles. I’ve been to so many that I struggle to count them all, and yet ironically, my list keeps growing longer and longer all the time.

So here’s a few castles in Europe that I’ve been wanderlusting over lately! I’m pretty sure I’ll visit each and every one of them, but I guess I need to figure out how to extend my life first (that’s already another story, though). Anyways, here’s the list of 16!
