Back to Bavaria, Texas

Ludwig II never laid the cornerstone for his last fantasy, Castle Falkenstein - but over a century after his death, one has sprung up in the Texas Hill Country, 50 miles west of Austin. The castle's owners, Terry and Kim Young, were inspired to build it by a visit to Neuschwanstein, in which they learned of the Mad King's unrealized plans. To arrange your wedding there, go to www.falkensteincastle.com (packages begin at $5,995).
