Sure a lot of them. It'd be interesting to know why they were abandoned.

I agree, some of them are pretty amazing, and you would think they someone with money would buy and remodel like the castle on the mountain.....It's such a waste not to restore some of these beautiful landmarks and atleast make tourist sites.

11 looks dangerous, which is probably why it's abandoned....21 should definatly get renovated and back to life....Beautiful, ridiculously huge caste. I want to google more information on this one to see if it is inhabitable.

That one's understandable for sure. But others have their own histories and the reasons they were abandoned are likely as diverse as the sites themselves. Sometimes it's because a mine, lumbering operation or some other type of employment has closed down, some tragedy has ocurred, or it can be as simple as the owners passing on and either leaving no heirs or the heirs don't have the interest in it, the funds for repairs or the funds to hire someone to care for it.  They all, however, have some history and are, in their own way, a part of history. It would be interesting to know their histories.
