Princess Peach's Castle is the Capital Building in Toad Town. It is capital to the whole Mushroom Kingdom, and is the home of Princess Peach Toadstool, Toadsworth, and other Toads. It is unknown weather the Yoshi that sleeps on top of the castle is a resident or not.

In Super Mario 64, Bowser took over the castle and trapped Princess Peach, Toad, and all the power stars within the paintings that surround the castle, Mario had to then go through each painting, collect the Power stars, and save the Princess and Toad. Once doing so, the castle returns back to normal.

In Paper Mario, Bowser lifts the castle out of the ground, and into the sky. When the castle was lifted, Princess Peach was having a party, so the she and all of the party guests were taken up with them. Mario was thrown out of a window by Bowser, and had to go up there to save them once again.

The castle has appeared in both the original Super Smash Bros. and its sequel. In the original, it appears in the background of the stage of the same name, which actually takes place on platforms in the sky. In Melee, it would become the stage where players fight, featuring "!" Switches from Super Mario World and Banzai Bills who constantly attack the castle. Both stages have been recreated in Super Smash Bros Ultimate.
