More and more couples are choosing unusual, often quirky destinations to mark the beginning of their married life. From fairy-tale castles to palatial abbeys, from football stadiums to chocolate factories, we bring you ten extraordinary wedding venues across Germany that would not only add a unique touch to your very special day but are sure to be talked about for years to come.

Burghausen Castle

Burghausen Castle, the longest castle in the world (confirmed by the Guinness Book of World Records) dating back to the Bronze Age and the former residence of Bavarian dukes could be the setting of your dream wedding. Take your pick from the two gorgeous chapels in the castle – Hedwigskapelle (up to 110 persons) and Elisabethkapelle (up to 100 persons). Afterwards, receive your guests at Torwartstube (perfect for an intimate gathering of up to 60 people) or at Dürnitz (suitable for bigger receptions of up to 200 guests).

Neuschwanstein Castle

If you’ve always dreamed of a fairy-tale wedding, Germany has you covered – and how! While weddings are not held in the castle interiors, you can have an achingly romantic wedding in the grounds of the Neuschwanstein Castle, deemed to be the most beautiful castle in the world and the inspiration for Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. Very few wedding venues can match up to this one in terms of photo opportunities.

Franz Marc Museum

At Franz Marc Museum, you get to say your vows in the midst of priceless paintings, while the jaw-dropping vistas of Lake Kochel provide a fitting backdrop. Weddings are held in the viewing room of the famous museum on Fridays and Saturdays, followed by a champagne reception in the foyer, a splendid meal in the restaurant or the sun terrace and a guided tour of the museum for the guests.

Cologne Chocolate Museum

Give Charlie a run for his money by actually getting married in a chocolate factory!
