In dit boek nemen wij u mee op een tocht langs 46 Europese kastelen, afkomstig uit acht landen (Frankrijk, Duitsland, Nederland, België, Oostenrijk, Tsjechië, Luxemburg en Italië). Kastelen die gebouwd zijn tussen pakweg het jaar 1000 en 1900 en die een goed beeld geven van de versterkte woningen uit de middeleeuwen, de kasteelpaleizen uit de renaissance en de (op)nieuw gebouwde romantische kastelen uit de 19e eeuw. Welkom in de wereld van de châteaux, schlösser, burchten, kastelen, burgen, zámky, hrady en castelli!

In this book we take you on a tour of 46 European castles, from eight countries (France, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Czech Republic, Luxembourg and Italy). Castles built roughly between the years 1000 and 1900, that give a good picture of the fortified houses of the Middle Ages, the castle palaces from the Renaissance and the (re) constructed romantic castles from the 19th century. Welcome to the world of the châteaux, schlösser, burchten, kastelen, burgen, zámky, hrady en castelli!


About the Author

Patrick Beckers
patriczik Maastricht, Netherlands, Europe

Patrick Beckers (1965) is from Maastricht, The Netherlands. He has been taken pictures since 1981, but it really became a hobby from 1987 onwards. He started his photograph-career with motor-racing pictures. These days, architecture photography is his specialty, although once or twice a year, he still turns up at motor-racing events.
From 1998 til 2008, he travelled around the world to take pictures of the world's tallest skyscrapers and he even released some books on this subject.
Since 2012, taking pictures of European castles has been his main objective.

Many of his (architecture) pictures have been used in books, magazines, leaflets, and on other websites. His website, his photography, his publishing and other journalistic work have always been done as a hobby, with no direct means of commercial profit. The little profit, if any, he makes, he uses to update his photo equipment and to pay for his travel expenses.
