Falkenstein lies in the Harz Mountains. This enormous castle was designed to resist a siege and an invading army's attack. 6 doors separated the defenders from the attackers. Each door was heavily guarded and it included archer loops and other defenses.
Felkenstein castle was used for hunting purposes for many years; and today it hosts a large hunting museum so the world can see the might of this castle.
Wartburg castle is located in Eisenach and it was built on a mountain 1300 feet high. This castle's interiors are very luxurious, and even today it can be visited because it has turned into a museum visited by thousands of tourists a year.
This castle's architecture ressembles a ship as it was a "floating stronghold" so Ludwig wanted it to look pretty much like a ship.
