    Nice picture including the rainbow. Great looking castle. Seems to be in a very good state of repair. That would suggest it's a big tourist draw and easily pays for itself.

    Well they do say a home is a mans castle. But I like my castles a little harder to burn down.

    Nice pictures, earlier in this thread I posted a picture of Dracula's castle. But I like your pictures better. Thank you for the post.

    Iv seen a house a guy made to look like a miniature castle. He even had a swimming pool for the moat. I thought it was pretty cool, I'll try to get a picture the next time I go to Alpharetta.

    I used to ( my family still do ) live about 300m from Conisbrough castle. We used to crawl into the grounds through drains as boys.

    Please post pictures.

    Try putting 'Alpharetta Castle' in Google and see if you can find pictures sooner than waiting on your next trip. Although personal pictures are preferred if you have them.

    Do the following pictures look familiar? If you want to be able to do pictures send me a PM and I'll give some easy tips to allow you to do as many pictures as you want for free. You have over 2000 posts and shouldn't be having problems with posting pictures.

    Bran Castle. Also called Dracula Castle (what is wrong).

    Is something wrong, if so I fail to see what it is? Two different shots of the same castle. In the picture you posted I can see some maintenance or reconstruction work going on, but what would you expect with a tourist money maker like that.

    I do not know when the photo was taken.

    May 27, 2006 - Bran Castle was returned to its rightful owner, Dominic Habsburg.

    Wow That Habsburg name looks like an old Nobels name like Brandenburg

    That roof is a roofers nightmare . Give Me Dracula or give Me roofing . I choose Dracula over that roof . Seriously the turret roof section ? No fun at all . Framing it would be o.k. but roofing . Roofers can do that one . Superoofers like "Chad the Brave" Or "Bill Gooden the Good "

    Only you would think of that. Just how bad is it? Do you think there were any deaths involved in doing that roof. Please describe some of the problems, you see from your point of view and how dangerous they are. I am very interested in castle architecture and construction.

    Not as impressive as some of the German ones, but this is the castle at the end of my garden:

    Neat! Your neighborhood castle looks to be in better condition than this one, the ruins of Edlingham Castle.
