Castle Drachenburg, Germany. Schloss Drachenburg, a fairy tale castle built in the 1880s, is an architectural mishmash that contains a fake organ, a reproduction of a Louis XIV throne and tacky murals. But it has been faithfully restored in honor of its startling history -- and because it represents a romantic yearning for a past that never was.
The BEAST's Castle
DAY 7: Favorite castle- Beauty and the Beast again. This castle was just so freaking cool. It was all light and beautiful- a perfect, pristine, awesome castle until the prince who lived there was a shallow jackass. And then the prince was turned into a beast and the castle became a dark, foreboding gothic romance novel setting with angels turned to gargoyles and shattered hopes represented in a torn portrait, the broken glass of a mirror, claw marks in the curtains... I kind of love it.
