Crofe Castle, been there as well

Admittedly they are mainly ruins, but thats what happens when you stand up to the Parliamentary armies in the English Civil War (1642-48)

Well, there are a lot of great castles in Germany, but I'll show you just these. Not so spectacular, but I have my reasons:

 

This is a rather small one and it's not in its best shape. But it's in my home town and I can look at it every day and go to it whenever I want.

"Wachtenburg" or "Geiersburg" in Wachenheim an der Weinstrasse, south-west Germany

 

This is a bigger castle, but more ruins than castle. It's one town in the north.

The ruins of the "Hardenburg" in Bad Duerkheim-Hardenburg, south-west Germany

 

This is a really big castle where I once visited a medieval market. Very cool (something for D&D-players).
