Cage Sells Bavarian Castle

Subscribe Nicolas Cage

NICOLAS CAGE is cutting back on his property empire - he has sold his 500-year-old Bavarian castle in Germany.
The actor snapped up the derelict Neidstein Castle back in 2006 for a cool $2.3 million (£1.61 million) and set about restoring it to its former glory.
Reports suggested Cage chose to buy the property because his mother, Joy Vogelsang, hails from Bavaria - but he was only seen visiting the estate once, in 2008.
And now the Knowing star has sold the castle to a lawyer, according to Roman Berr, the mayor of nearby Etzelwanger.
But the star still has a considerable property portfolio, including homes in Los Angeles, Louisiana and another castle, the 18th Century Midford Castle on the outskirts of Bath, England.
In a recent interview with British radio station Heart, the actor spoke of his love for his English retreat, saying, "The castle is in a process of restoration and hasn't been finished yet. It's a long process. It's from the 1700s and it needs quite a bit of love.
"It's more like a castle of the imagination. It's more of a (Alice in Wonderland author) Lewis Carroll-type castle actually; quite fantastical and all that."
