The Riessersee Hotel is situated in the very south, in one of the most beautiful corners of Bavaria. In the midst of tall mountains (including Germany's highest mountain, the Zugspitze) and directly on the privately owned Riesser Lake, the Riessersee Hotel invites you to celebrate your wedding in Germany in this breathtaking spot.

Garmisch-Partenkirchen, the authentic Bavarian town where this wedding venue is located, is full of half-timbered houses and artfully painted historic buildings. It has something to offer at any time of the year! During the warmer months, you can hike on the many trails in the mountains and forests, swim in the crystal clear Eibsee or overlook the majestic view of the Alps from the top of the Zugspitze. In winter, the town is hugely popular for skiing and other winter sports. Those who like it cosier can simply enjoy the cold weather from the warmth of the fireside lounges with a hot cup of mulled wine.

This wedding venue in Bavaria offers several ceremony locations for different tastes and needs. Slightly above the hotel, there is a meadow with the undoubtedly best view of the lake and mountain panorama around you which can seat up to 80 guests total.

The lakeside terrace is perfect for smaller groups of up to 40 people. If you’re celebrating with only your closest friends and family up to 30 people, you can even hold your wedding ceremony on the floating raft on the lake!

The hotel also offers several indoor alternatives in case there should be rain on your wedding day. For your wedding dinner, choose between the cosy, Bavarian style “Kaminzimmer” with the fireplace or the Wintergarden with glass walls and the night sky above you. Continue the celebration in the hotel bar with your favourite music playing into the night.
