Everybody who has ever read the tales of the Grimm brothers or heard the classic fairytale stories, knows that Germany is the place where fairytales happen. Here in the very south of Bavaria lies a little town with the authentic half-timbered houses and old cobblestone alleys that might well be straight out of your favourite Disney movie. Schwangau is the home of King Ludwig II, the so-called swan king or fairytale king of Bavaria, and his magnificent castles.


This charming family-owned boutique hotel for weddings in Bavaria which combines modern style and luxury with traditional German elements and Bavarian hospitality. Being situated in Schwangau, the Rübezahl has an unparalleled view of the two royal castles - Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau - and the gorgeous mountain panorama into which they are built.


Getting married in Neuschwanstein Castle is not possible but here at this wedding hotel in Bavaria, you can marry with a wonderful view of both castles as the backdrop to your wedding ceremony in Germany! Your ceremony can take place on the Panorama Deck which is situated on the second floor of the hotel and can be privatized for you and your guests. This ceremony location is best suited for elopements with just the two of you or smaller groups with up to 15 people.

Should you want to celebrate your wedding in Germany with more guests, then you should definitely take a look at the hotel's own mountain lodge. Perched high on top of the mountains, you can enjoy the simply breathtaking view 1320 meters above the ground in the "Rohrkopfhütte"!

For the very brave couple that is not afraid of heights, the mountain lodge can offer one more unique ceremony location: the newly built wooden platforms on the mountainside next to the main lodge. Here, you can say yes in front of the open panorama of the Alps, the castles and the towns underneath your feet!


If you celebrate with up to 16 guests, you can dine in the private Gourmet Restaurant Gams&Gloria in the hotel. Alternatively, the hotel will be happy to reserve a nice table in their second restaurant Louis II which can seat more people. The mountain lodge has an open terrace as well as an indoor option for your reception or wedding dinner in the evening. Here, you can celebrate with up to 55 people. Keep in mind though that the mountain lodge has to stay open for hikers during the day and can only be completely privatized for your group after 6 pm.


This hotel for weddings in the Bavarian Alps will take care of you and your guests so you can enjoy your time in Bavaria with beautiful bedrooms and suites, a wellness area and excellent cuisine throughout your stay.


This wedding venue is situated in the south of Germany, in Bavaria. The picturesque fairytale towns of Füssen and Schwangau are right at your doorstep and you can get to Munich in a little over an hour. If you'd like to discover the natural beauty of the Alps, this is a perfect starting point: the town has hiking paths for all difficulties and the National Park Berchtesgaden is just a short drive away.
