Whether millennia old or dating from the 19th century — there’s something unique about castles. The homes of humanity’s mightiest families, they offer unique insights into worlds that once were. Enigmatic and empowering, even the oldest ruins still offer an exciting window into bygone eras — yet many lay hidden among the mountains and forests that once served as protective buffers to the outside world. To help you discover these incredible places, then, we’ve collected the best of our community-contributed castle Highlights above. Simply filter by region and scroll through the results — and view representative photos (you won’t find any airbrushing here!), helpful tips and suggested routes so you can more easily add them to your next trip.

Our list of top castles comprises only Highlights that were contributed by the community, for the community. Recommended by real users on komoot, they are genuine recommendations you know you can trust. Know of some awesome castles in your area that aren’t on the list?
