Being a patriotic ^%$#@!, I will post some castles which are located in the Netherlands.
However, I saw some nice examples of castles in this thread! Reminds me I have to go to Romania some time, because Peles (the only palace I knew there) doesn't seem
to be the only interesting castle there.


Muiderslot, Muiden (10-15 km. east of Amsterdam)
This castle is famous in the Netherlands because of the "Muiderkring", which was active in the 17th centrury. It was a group of writers, who came together in the castle
to discuss their plays, novels and poems, and who shared the same interests. Famous "Muiderkring"writers were: P.C. Hooft, Bredero, Joost van den Vondel,
Schweelinck (music composer), Constantijn Huygens and others.




Huis Bergh, 's Heerenberg (east of Arnhem, near the German border)
You can actually see an original panel of the Maest by Duccio here!





Slot Loevestein, Poederoijen (south of Utrecht)
From this castle, Hugo de Groot escaped in a bookcoffin in 1621.




De Haar, Haarzuilens
The Dutch Pierrefonds, almost completely rebuild in the 19th century. One of the biggest castles in Holland.




Kasteel Hoensbroek, Hoensbroek (Limburg)


Kasteel Doornenburg, Doornenburg (Arnhem/Nijmegen)




Kasteel Doorwerth, Doorwerth (west of Arnhem)


Kasteel Duivenvoorde, Voorschoten, The Hague


Kasteel Brederode, Santpoort
Once a mighty castle, now an impressive ruin.

And an impressive castle in the Czech Republic. When you are in Prague, you should go and visit!
Karlstejn

Anyway. Here we go:


Schwerin castle, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (Germany)


*****************



It's standing on an island right in the Schwerin lake (Schweriner See).
It's used as the parliament of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern now.
