The French Did It Right
- Chenonceaux Castle in the Loire Valley to me is the most beautiful castle ever built. There are many in the Loire Valley that are just breathtaking, I really want to do a river cruise through that region to see them all.

- I like Herrenchiemsee castle near Augsburg, Germany the best. King Ludwig the fourth knew beauty when he saw it.

- The best castle I have seen so far is the Hohenzollern in Hechingen, Germany. Forget the Neuschwanstein! This one is way better!
