Private Castle but I went to a wedding reception here. Only saw the courtyard but it was nice. https://neckarsteig.de/en/der-steig/burgen-und-schloesser/vierburgenstadt-neckarsteinach

Not accessible but nice nonetheless, and a good start to the 4 Burg Tour (the other three you can enter and climb around).

Castle not accessible because the place seems privately owned.

Duino Castle

Duino Castle was built by the Wallsee family in 1389 on the cliffs overlooking the Gulf of Trieste. It replaced an older castle from the 11th century. Over time, the Wallsee family disappeared and the castle, after having been used as a prison, became the residence of the Luogar and Hofer.

At the end of the 19th century it became the property of Prince Alexander von Thurn und Taxis from the Czech branch of the House of Thurn and Taxis. It remains with the family to this day with his great-grandson Prince Carlo Alessandro della Torre e Tasso, Duke of Castel Duino the current owner. The castle has been opened to the public as a museum and park.
