Castles and palaces

These palaces and castles are worth a trip. They tell stories. Among them are some who house museums. Others are inhabited instead. Others, on the other hand, serve as hotels or restaurants. Many of them are located in parks. A visit to the castle therefore not only offers buildings that impress. Parks also often invite you to take a walk. A trip to a castle therefore guarantees a day for connoisseurs.
