About this venue


A picture paints a thousand words, and the photos of this wedding castle in Hesse speak so much of its unique beauty, elegance, and historical flair. It’s a perfect spot for fairytale weddings and a wonderful choice for couples who want everything for their destination elopement in Germany in one place. From the ceremony area, reception halls, to the wedding cake, full catering services, and accommodations, this medieval castle has it all.


Ideally located in the greenest German state, you are sure to have an adventure elopement and honeymoon in this wedding castle. 42% of Hesse is covered by forests so expect to be surrounded by woodlands, mountains, and overwhelming nature for your destination wedding.

What’s more, is that this castle sits amidst historic cities and towns where you can have a closer look at Germany’s history. You’ll find historic and art museums in the city of Kassel, botanical gardens and neo-gothic castles in the town of Eschwege, and the Old City Hall (Altes Rathaus) of Göttingen where temporary art shows of German artists are exhibited. Visiting these nearby cities is a great start to your German trip.


For wedding ceremonies, the castle offers civil wedding rooms, an idyllic castle chapel, and an outdoor area for bright and airy ceremonies. Since legal weddings in Germany are quite complicated for non-residents, a civil wedding is rarely an option. The best alternatives would be religious weddings inside the chapel just a few steps away from the castle, and an outdoor wedding in the dreamlike castle park with a view of the Werra valley.


As we mentioned above, everything you need for a fairytale wedding in Germany is in this medieval castle. It offers several reception halls that are uniquely decorated, and all with a historic ambiance. If you want to see the beautiful park while dining, you can hold the reception in a wedding marquee set up in the tournament ground. If you want something more extraordinary, party at the vaulted cellar of the castle with a dance floor, a bar, and a stage! The vaulted cellar is ideal for festive receptions with loud music and lots of dancing.


Quality food is the last thing to worry about for weddings in this castle because they offer full catering services with tasty wedding menus. Whether it’s a dinner for two, intimate reception with your closest friends and family, or a grand banquet, there’s a wedding menu fitting for your celebration.

The selection ranges from multiple course meals charged per person to standard, classic, and superior buffet options. The castle’s talented bakers will gladly create a beautiful wedding cake for you, whether it’s a simple two-tier cheesecake or a grand five-tier yogurt cake. If you wish, you can even request for a vegetarian or vegan menu for your wedding party.


Before indulging in the world-class menu offered by the venue, take advantage of the picturesque areas surrounding the castle for your photoshoot. Walk along the huge castle park and take photos against the stately castle walls. Explore the woodlands with towering trees and enjoy every corner of this medieval castle so you can freeze the moments of your destination wedding in Germany for eternity.

While you’re at it, the staff can entertain your guests through a guided tour of the whole castle. This way, they won’t get bored waiting for the reception while you take all the time that you need for the wedding photoshoot.


To ensure a completely stress-free wedding, the castle owners arranged a place where you can stay for the night. They offer accommodations in the nearby hotel with two guest rooms filled with antique furnishings and historic interiors. Although historic in design, both rooms have modern bathrooms and everything that you need for a comfortable stay. They even have windows that lend a view of the breathtaking nature surrounding the castle hotel.
