Europe RR - Group 53 * Castles

This was the 1st time I joined this RR and decided to take part in 2 groups, castles and churches. The churches group is still not complete.
The castles group was a group with 5 persons from 5 different countries, each one of us was supposed to get 4 cards but only 3 arrived to our mailboxes.

Susi from Austria sent this card with a water castle in Kottingbrunn. Couldn't find much information about the castle. 

From Slovakia a card with Bratislava castle sent by Laco. 
Bratislava Castle, the landmark overlooking the Capital, was built in the 9th century. As an agelong symbol of the city, it proudly stands on the hill above Danube river. Eleven kings and eight queens were crowned in Bratislava in the past. - in:

I believe this is my 1st card from Hanau, a town located 25 km east of Frankfurt. 
One of the most beautiful places in Hanau is the Baroque palace of the XVIII century Philippsruhe Palace off the coast of the Main river. The castle, the construction of which began in 1700, served as the summer residence for Count Philipp Reinhard of Hanau. Over time an extensive park was created around the palace with an orangery and a tea house and the building was significantly expanded. Today Philippsruhe houses the history museum. - in:
The card was sent by Svea.
