These are no doubts the most beautiful castles in Europe. But you are missing some other stunning castles like Prague Castle of Czech Republic, Peles Castle of Romania, Burg Hohenwerfen in Austria and Palace of Pena of Portugal. There are lots of others as well. These are just some additions to your list.  ;)  :D

2.   Edinburgh Castle, Scotland, UK
It is situated in the city of Edinburgh. This castle still has military garrison. The views from the castle are stunning.

3.   Vajdahunyad Castle, Budapest, Hungary
This castle is right by Heroes Square in Budapest. It has got a gothic gate which leads you to the courtyard. There is a beautiful chapel and the statue of the Anonymous.
