I haven't voted yet but am leaning towards Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany.

I liked King Ludwig II. In fact, he may have been a distant relative of mine.

The tree site is cool. It's hard to pick favorites. I like pretty much all of them..

Jim,
Didn't King Ludwig II get bumped off by his own servants? Watch your back, Jim.
 
Jerry, he probably did, unless he drowned in four inches of water.
..
 
I vote Petra.
