Europe has thousands of castles you can visit, so I'll just give you a very short list of what I believe to be is the list of must-see castles: Neuschwanstein Castle and Mespelbrunn Castle in Germany, Mont Saint-Michel in France, Krakow Castle in Poland and Castel Sant'Angelo in Rome (Italy).

There are a ton in Ireland and Great Britain. Think about going to Carlise castle in Northern England. That's where they held Mary Queen of Scots.

The best castles in Europe are in Germany and the U.K. in my opinion. The most astonishing one is probably the Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany. It's looks like it came right out of a fairy tale. Then there's the Windsor Castle in London which is like a symbol of the British Monarchy.

Berseel castle right outside of Brussels is a great side trip castle. It is in restoration, part of the castle is still in ruins and part of it looks like it could still drive off an attack. It's a relatively small castle, one of the dozen that guarded the route to the city. Make sure you check the opening times!
