As you drive along Park Road in Burnet, Texas, you’ll no doubt see the Falkenstein Castle’s majestic towers peek out above the trees. The stunning architecture looks fit for a princess, and you almost expect to find fairy godmothers appearing out of thin air. Though it may look like it’s straight out of a fairy tale, this gorgeous structure is actually inspired by the Neuschwanstein castle in Germany. Terry and Kim Young built this magnificent castle in 1996, and it’s now one of the Hill Country’s most popular wedding venues. This fascinating castle is only an hour and a half away from Austin, and it’s perfect for your happily ever after.
