Cool topic.  Does it have to be a real place?

Ah I thought I remembered an article like this! Though there might be more than one. Here it is.
http://www.castlevaniadungeon.net/features/castles.html
Maybe there should be an update to include the recent notice of how Cagliostro probably influenced Castlevania 3's castle design as well?

Castlevania was obviously influenced heavily by the Austrian architects, though.

Hohenzollern


Hohenwerfen


And here are some Polish castles with impressive towers:

Malbork


Niedzika


Krzyztopor (this one just looks cool)


Moszna


Grodziec


Ksiaz


Kwidzyn


Kraziczyn


Tenczyn (ruined)


Radzyn



In Germany, there's the beautiful Kreuzenstein


and Coburg


And of course Nuremburg


Lauenstein...


and Guiness record holder Burghausen



And I can't believe, even though it's not technically keeps but still towers, no one brought up Carcassonne

Some one should dress up as a Belmont and film himself running through a castle's corridors. That would be awesome.   :P
