Get married in Germany at the “Gate to the Franconian Forest”! The Water Castle Mitwitz has a long and eventful past to look back on. First mentioned in documents in the 13th century, the castle has been owned by the same family and passed down through the generations for almost half a millennium now. Choosing this as the castle to elope in Germany will make your ceremony a cut above the rest.

The moated castle and its castle grounds lie in the romantic town of Mitwitz, which is also known as the “Gate to the Franconian Forest”. Situated in the middle of unspoiled nature, the castle and its surroundings make for ideal places for your elopement or small wedding in Germany – at any time of the year!

This castle to elope in Germany has everything you need for your romantic castle wedding in Germany! Its carefully restored rooms and gardens offer a beautiful selection of places for your wedding ceremony in a historic castle. If you’re opting for a legally-binding ceremony, you can say yes in the elegant “White Salon,” a bright room flooded with natural light. Couples wishing to get married with a religious ceremony can do so in either the small Catholic chapel directly on site in the castle or in the bigger protestant church nearby. Since symbolic weddings in Germany are not subject to any legal requirements, a symbolic ceremony can take place anywhere on the castle’s grounds! Get married with an intimate outdoor elopement amongst the ancient trees in the poetic castle garden. In the colder season, exchange your vows in one of the castle’s elegant salons.

This historic and romantic wedding castle in Mitwitz gives you rich photographic opportunities indoors and outdoors. Every spot around the structure is scenic, including the archways and bridges connecting the different parts of the castle. Towering trees and mint green bushes will make your wedding photos truly magical when pose in front of these nature-packed elements surrounding the whole castle. This venue evokes an extraordinary facade that separates it from all other similar historic structures in Germany.

The castle itself does not offer any accommodation but in the town nearby you will find a selection of hotels for all styles and budgets.

Mitwitz is located close to Nuremberg as well as several historic towns and some major cities like Munich within only a couple hours’ drive.
