I've been to both these places several times and can tell you that on the ground corresponds to the descriptions, they both never were intended for or actually had defensive functions, despite features like a draw bridge or a weapons room with (original but brought there as furnishings ) armors, swords, crossbows etc.
These castles are romantic (stylistic/typological) copies referencing the past, not original defensive structures (like Neuschwanstein). Still, I d tag them as historic=castle (and subtags, start_date etc.)
