    My favorite castle is near the small village of Ouid Zuillen, outside Utrecht, The Netherlands. It is Slot Zuylen (www.slotzuylen.com). I like it because past relations of mine lived there, and some of the family is still on the Board. http://www.slotzuylen.nl/beeld/tuin//ster

    My choice would definitely be Hearst Castle! I remember visiting this huge place in California back in 2000. My favorite spot inside the castle is the Neptune Pool.

    Cool Re: What's Your Favorite Castle?

    I personally select and visit the most wonderful all castles. There are plenty of big and gorgeous castles in India. The royal state of Rajasthan has glorious castles telling the story of velour of the warriors who fought throughout their life.

    It would have to be Warwick Castle in England. As a true Anglophile anything and everything British is at the top of my list.

    I love most of them on your list, although I prefer the genuinely old ones built for fortification.
    My local castle, Egremont, is a sad little ruin now, and the only wars it saw was when Robert the Bruce, or his minions, came rampaging over the Border from Scotland to burn and destroy a little....it's really just a park for a pleasant afternoon, or a staged medieval battle....we also have a Roman garrison nearby, up an impossible pass in the mountains.
    Love Warwick, Windsor and Alnwick; I shall have to go local and add Hadrian's wall, and our county castle of Carlisle.....officially still barred to anyone named Armstrong after 6pm....

    The highlight of our trip was our stay at Castle Hotel Auf Schonburg. It was amazing: great ambience, service and attention to detail. My daughters (age 4 and 7) said it was a dream come true.
