Germany is famous all over the world with its castles, however, no one in the world or in Germany for that matter, knows how many of them there actually are. A new project has recently been set up to change that. The German Castle Club, or DBV, is planning to collect data and finally give some answers.

To be completed, the project will probably take more than ten years and will cost quite a lot. Teams will count not only the existing castles but also the locations where castles once stood.

Each federal state has already developed statistics of its castles, however, the information provided is not entirely accurate scientifically but the new project aims at changing that.
