In the summer of 2006 a fairytale castle in Bavaria became the latest addition to Nicolas Cage's already extensive property portfolio. Settling down in his second marriage to former sushi waitress Alice Kim seems to have encouraged the Adaptation actor to learn more about his family roots. The forbearers of his mother, Joy Vogelsang, originate from the Southern German region, and the star was hoping to buy back a little piece of his ancestral history.

Nic and his 22-year-old wife, who welcomed son Kal-el in October 2005, reportedly splashed out 1.5 million on 9,688-square-foot Schloss Neidstein. The 11th-century castle in the village of Etzelwang boasts an adjoining plot of land, comprising 395 acres of forests, meadows and hills.
