Does anyone know of a good resource for Castles

I will be visiting Amsterdam, Venice, and Belgium April 1-12. I haven't seen much talk if any regarding visits to castles. Would anyone happen to have a good resources for this?

Thank you all in advance!

If you are going to Venice and want to see a huge honking castle with a moat and a dungeon, then take the short train ride to Ferrara. If you would like to see a lively castle with turrets and a drawbridge, take the train to Verona.

Otherwise, here is a list of castles around Venice, but you would most likele need a car to get to them, and before you go, double check to see if they are accessible to the public. The famous ones in Ferrara and Verona are, but not always the less famous ones.

Will you fly? If you travel by train, you will bypass hundreds of well preserved castles open for visits.
