Schloss Liebenstein -
Castle will be the venue for our wedding. We chose it for good
It obviously has the right name, and we won't run out of electricity,
given the nuclear power station down the road...
Liebenstein is located in Swabia (Schwaben), in the South-Western part
The surrounding area is a picturesque wine growing area along the banks
of the Neckar river.

By car: From Stuttgart go on
to the A 81 (northbound, i.e. direction Heilbronn),
take the exit "Ilsfeld", then go through Ilsfeld to Neckarwestheim.
You'll find a great map when you type in "Neckarwestheim" into the map
finder from viamichelin.
It should only take you about one hour, however, allow for more time.
It can be a bit tricky...
By train: there are trains
roughly every half an hour, for example, a train leaving "Stuttgart
arrives in "Lauffen (Neckar)" at 11:52. You can find train connections
on the website of the "Deutsche Bahn".
Don't bother pre-booking a ticket, you just have to buy it at the
station before you board the train.
Tickets are € 7.20 (as per 30.05.05).
Then take a cab to Schloss Liebenstein, which will cost around € 15.-
