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.
Traveling to this Alpine paradise hotel is not as hard as you think. It's only about 160 kms from the Munich airport or a 1 ½ hour-drive.
The location of this award-winning hotel was already royal and Alpine way back in the 60's when Hildegard and Herbert Thumr made it their home. They later turned it from "Haus beim Hubertus" into the Alpine hotel that it is today as a tribute to their old home, the Sudeten Mountains.
It was developed further by their son, his wife, and their children by adding the "Therme Romana," a spa with an outdoor panorama pool.
What sets this hotel apart from other wedding venues around Southern Bavaria is that it offers the majestic view of the Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau castles. This charming family-owned boutique hotel for weddings in Bavaria combines modern style and luxury with traditional German elements and Bavarian hospitality. From the hotel, you can witness the gorgeous mountain panorama into which the famous royal castles are built.
You'll surely enjoy the AlpenRausch Bar which is a hotspot in the Allgäu region because of their world-class drinks. They have a fine and exclusive selection of rum, gin, and whisky. Plus, they have personalized cocktail creations by their resident bar chef. Have a taste of their signature liqueur made from noble old rum varieties and the extract of roasted hazelnuts. This bar is undoubtedly a perfect match to the cold Alpine weather.
One of the most favorite facilities of this venue is its outdoor pool that is heated all-year round. The pool has a panorama terrace that lends a view to the Royal Castles. The other facilities available for your enjoyment are the hot tubs, sauna, steam room, and a tepidarium.

Should you want to celebrate with more guests on your wedding, 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 1,320 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.

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.
