Falkenstein Castle is on Park Road 4, southwest of Burnet, Tx. You can reach P.R. 4 from Highway 281 running between Burnet and Marble Falls. It is really something special and new.[Mary Beth Peoples, 07/09/2000]
Falkenstein Castle was built by a rich couple in 1996, based on drawings of Mad King Ludwig's lost castle. It is nine-stories tall. As a private residence, it is not open to the public (though it does have it's own website, at falkensteincastle.com). No one can stop you from photographing the exterior, shaming neighboring bungalows, even from miles away. The chapel can be rented for weddings.
