Castles

I suppose many people in the United States would really like to travel the world and see the castles they dreamed of a children. Those magical places where the stories came from. They always seemed so far away and magical. Royalty is something missing in their culture. It’s pretty much a mystery.

So I found some castles that we can enjoy. 

Hammond Castle

This is the Hammond castle located in Gloucester, Massachusetts. It is one of the few that is located in the United States. It is on the Atlantic coast in the Magnolia area.  The original owner, John Hays Hammond Jr had it constructed between 1926 and 1929. 

Mr. Hammond was an inventor. He dealt with the early stages of “remote control” and held over 400 patents.

Castle Hohenschwangau

This castle is located in Hohenschwangau Germany. It hosts over 300,000 visitors a year. I think fall must be the best time to visit because the trees are amazing. To me it look likes the foliage will bring an added bonus

Malbork Castle

Malbork is the largest castle in the world (surface area), and the largest brick building in Europe. It was built in Prussia by the Teutonic Knights, in a form of an Ordensburg fortress. The castle is a classic example of a medieval fortress and, on its completion in 1406, was the world’s largest brick castle.

The largest castle in the world, by surface area, is Malbork. It is also the largest brick castle in the world. It’s a fortress style.

Osaka Castle

This is a stacked castle. You see five stories from the outside. But on the inside there are eight stories.

It sets upon a tall stone foundation for protection. 

Chambord Castle

The castle is a great example of French Renaissance architecture. It is an unfinished building, and that doesn't seem to bother anyone with over 700,000 visitors a year. It was built to use as a hunting lodge. 

Kilkenny

Kilkenny was built in 1195 by William Marshal. One of the things I like about this one is the round defense towers. I also find it nice that it is used for practical reasons for graduations and meetings.

Hohenwerfen Castle

Hohenwerfen Castle is simply picture perfect. You catch a glimpse  of this one in several movies. The castle sits on a hill overlooking the Salzach Valley. As a child this is the kind of castle I dreamed of.
