They do! Depends upon the geographic origin of the Fairy Tale.

Most Fairy tales are either European or American origin like Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Goldilocks and such. The set up and execution of the stories thus are very European in flavor and so it matches the backdrops of Scandinavian and Norse nations. Castles there are exactly those like in fairy tales! The resemblance is so remarkable that the most famous castle - Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany - is called Fairy tale castle ... its really something made out of a dream! :)

Indian folklore has the rural, bucolic taste... castles are not that well described. We concentrate more on the beauty of our Princess and valor of our Hero that backdrops hardly engage. But the medieval castles of Rajasthan have that touch.

There are many fairy tales of Russian and Japanese origin where the descriptions of castles are so beautifully worded that they look the same in real! I have seen a few castles in Europe - at Montreux ...more
