99 hello's:

  1. the balloon castle is hands down my favorite. i hope i dream i'm frolicking around it tonight!

    do you have wanderlust on the brain Danni? me too!!!!!! jon and i are hoping to go to europe next summer and possibly, Lord willing, catch an olympic event or two in London. any travel plans with the nick-ster coming up?

  2. Castles on islands?! That is too cool. But my favorite is the one smack in the middle of lush green mountains. Mountains are my favorite natural landscape so that place would probably be too much for my little heart to handle. Haha.

  3. Hi, I came by your blog through Design Sponge, such a cute wedding you had! Just wanted to let you know that the first unknown castle is Burg Eltz in Germany :)

  4. Oh my, the castles by the sea remind me of my favourite story, 'The Little Mermaid'. Thanks for the castle collection Danni. Love them!

  5. Oh, yay! I was at the third picture from the top! That is actually an outbuilding of the main castle on the property. It's part of Boldt Castle in Alexandria Bay, NY. There is a bowling alley in there. So cool!

  22. Hello Danni,I am so glad I've found you're blog. You're weddingpictures and idear's about it I found AMAZING! Never seen such a great party. U2 looked so LOVELY. By the way: I have been to Neuswanstein and I found the inside very scarry. Totally horror. The brothers who made it where freaks. You're picture is beautifull with all that snow. Wish you all the best and you see me again. Greetings with heart&soul from Sil.

  37. OMG these are soooo cool. I would love to live in a castle and be like a proper princess even if it was just for a day. You even have the disney castle on there. Part of me is still wondering about Disneyland Paris longing to live in it :( I'm not kidding but I took about at lest 75 photos of it in the space of 4 days!!! That little collection was absolutely lovely. Thatnkyou for shareing.
    P.S. That first one in the snow was sooo beautifull. Like something out of a winter fairytale :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. These are so beautiful.
    I'm not 100% sure but the second from the bottom looks like the castle on Lake Bled in Slovenia. As I said I'm not completely sure but it looks like it. And I'll be able to confirm in June as I'm finally going to see it live. I'm almost giddy, been waiting years to go to Slovenia.
    P.S. Loved your wedding photos.

  39. the Neuschwanstein Castle is just beautiful :)))

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love the photo with the balloons! Congrats on the Blog of Note too!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Wow!! Gorgeous photos, and amazing castles! Love the second one cause it's like we're sneaking a peek :) number 6 is as though it were out of a movie set! Number 9 is just perfect! number 12 is so dreamy and I love the natural mountain pinks with the bright red of the castle! Thanks for sharing :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. oh my gosh!! these are breathtaking!! it makes me wish i could live in one SO BAD!

  44. Great line-up of some truly inspiring works of architecture...but you forgot the best one...the Alacazar in Segovia, Spain. I've only seen it in pictures, but it's a stunner.(thought I doubt it ever gets completely covered in snow...or balloons!)

    ReplyDelete
  45. I will live in that castle someday...p.s. tried to spell it unsucessfully(sp?) like 10 times

  54. I've been to Neuschwanstein castle, and it was the most romantic place I've ever seen.
    I'm glad it got more attention than the other castles :)
    There's something so inherently romantic about castles, thanks for brightening my day :)

  56. ooo, so pretty...I remember the first castle I saw in person, in Warsaw, Poland, when I was sixteen...hmmm I'm feeling the best sort of nostalgia right now. These are splendid. Whoever mentioned wanderlust is exactly right. I'd like to hop on a plane to Europe right now.

    Amazing the work the people had to do to get such structures made!

  64. My goodness! These are all so beautiful!
    My uni organized a trip for students to visit quite a lot of Europe's most amazing castles. It was quite expensive so I couldn't afford it but I still dream that one day I'll get to see at least a few of them :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. Oh my! They are stunning. Can you imagine that level of commitment in our age? The Millenium Dome seems to speak volumes of what is produced in 20th/21st Century :(

    I live in the Western Isles, and we have a (smallish) castle here in Stornoway (funnily enough, I posted a photo on my blog yesterday).

    Wonderful photos...

  73. I might be crazy, but I think #2 and #3 are Disney theme park castles? Not DisneyWorld in Florida, but maybe California, Japan or Euro?

    ReplyDelete
  74. im pretty sure the 2nd and 3rd pictures are both Cinderellas castle Walt-Disney world in florida! :D

    ReplyDelete
  75. This just made me believe I am supposed to live in a castle

    ReplyDelete
  76. I used to live in Europe and actually grew tired of castles after a while, but this collection is just GORGEOUS! I am wistful for a journey home.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  78. I recognized the photo of the castle with the balloons and I searched, but couldn't find the link. :( It was a post on a wedding blog about a wedding that was inspired by the Pixar movie Up, and I remember it was a lovely wedding, but I can't remember where I saw it!

    I love this collection. Breath taking!

    ReplyDelete
  79. i would love to explore any of these! they're right out of a storybook. i feel like floating away into a dream world. thanks so much for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Hello! Your first picture is actually Hohenschwangau, and the fifth is Neuschwanstein if I remember correctly. You can look at http://www.hohenschwangau.de/ticketcenter.0.html - Both are beautiful inside and out!

  83. Hi Dani

    I am not sure if someone said this already because i didnt read through all of the posts, but you have about 3 or 4 pics of Neuschwanstein. The last picture from Andrew is it, as well as the last picture all together... the castle looks different from different angles and dif. seasons :)

    great collection!!

    ReplyDelete
  84. My last name is Castle, so I loooove looking at these. I'd die to go to just one of them!

    ReplyDelete
  85. WOW! These photos seriously took my breath away. Gorgeous!!!

  86. The ballon castle is from Lily Allen's video to 'The Fear'.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  87. Very nice. I did not know much. Hungary is also a lot of us can see the castle. I lived near one of them. Very nice. There are several books on castles. But only one is visible in many parts of the world.
