Castle Photography: 50 Photos to Trigger your Fantasy

Castles had their origins in the 9th and 10th centuries. Most of them were built as a private fortified residence of a lord or noble.

Some turned into ruins through the ages, others remained in perfect state, or got renovated, and were turned into musea, some are still in use by royalty or other nobility.

Castles can also have a fairy tale image. In story books, beautiful princesses live there, sometimes even cruel queens or ghosts.

But even real castles can trigger our fantasy… A perfect example of this is one of the most beautiful castles in the world, the Bavarian castle Neuschwanstein. It was built by Ludwig II of Bavaria. What’s interesting about Neuschwanstein is that Hans Christian Andersen wrote some of his fairy tales in the castle, and later on, Walt Disney used that castle as inspiration for Disneyworld’s castle…

In the following 50 photos, we’ll give you a taste of some of the most beautiful castles in the world. Enjoy!
