Sophie's Castle Tour
Saturday, July 23, 2011

Planned by Paul Goldfine

Meet in the HEB parking lot, 641 East Hopkins Street, San Marcos at 9:00am.

(get directions)

Driver’s meeting is at 9:15am and departure is at 9:30am.

We’ll depart San Marcos for a leisurely drive to Wimberley.

Have your cameras ready, because some of the scenery is unexpected!

In Wimberley, we’ll change direction and drive to Canyon Lake for lunch at Sailor’s Lakeside Grill. Lunch will be around 11:30 and be served buffet style.

It will consist of Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo, Spaghetti and Meatballs, Pasta Primavera, Caesar Salad, Garlic Bread and a dessert sampler (water, tea and soda are included).

The cost will be $14 per person.

We'll depart the restaurant at 1:00pm for a quick drive to New Braunfels and a visit to the Sophienburg Museum. The Sophienburg, or Sophie’s Castle, is built on the hill where Germany's Prince Carl was going to build a home for his finacee, Lady Sophie. The museum documents the lives of the early German settlers in Central Texas.

The staff will give us an overview of the museum and then we'll be free to look around until their 4pm closing.

The entrance fee will be $4 per person.
