Willi lives in a small village of Riepe in Germany. He sent me this card from my favourites list, Neuschwanstein Castle, the Fairy Tale Castle.  I really believe it must have been the castle of  Sleeping Beauty.

Schloss Greifenstein b. Blankenburg ( Schwarzatal ) im 12. Jahrhundert
Das eigentliche Schloss

Anni sent me the third castle from Thuringia region Germany. 
This old castle is near her home town.

Greifenstein is situated north of Bad Blankenburg in Thuringia on the mountain "Greifenstein". It  is one of the oldest feudal fortresses in Germany. Known until the 17th century as Blankenburg Castle.  Today it  consists of a principal building with a great hall and tower and has several courtyards and bastions. The Counts of Schwarzburg-Blankenburg resided here in the 13th and 14th century.
I think it is a perfect place for medieval markets, knights fights, musicians, falconers, magicians and jugglers.
