Hohenzollern Castle, Germany

Photograph by Berthold Steinhilber, laif/Redux

Boasting the towers and turrets of a storybook setting, neo-Gothic Hohenzollern Castle overlooks the Swabian Alb in southwestern Germany. Built over a medieval castle complex, Hohenzollern has served as a fortress, a royal ancestral seat, and—today—a historical attraction with daily guided tours.
