Getting Married in Salzburg

Salzburg offers romantics a wonderful setting in which to get married or enjoy a honeymoon. Though May is famous as the “month of love”, you will see white wedding carriages rolling through the streets of the city at all times of year.

Dream Weddings in Salzburg

The undisputed “number one” in the list of romantic locations for a civil wedding ceremony is undoubtedly the baroque Marble Hall at Mirabell Palace. Not without reason is it known as “the most beautiful wedding hall in Europe”. The Angle Staircase and the colorful Mirabell Gardens in front of the palace provide the ultimate backdrop for unforgettable photographic memories. Equally memorable are nuptials at a number of palaces in Salzburg. Whether Schloss Leopoldskron or Schloss Hellbrunn, the selection of ideally suited wedding locations in a breathtaking atmosphere is extensive. And if you prefer to take your ceremony to an even greater “heights”, how about exchanging your vows above the rooftops of the Old City! Hotel Schloss Mönchstein on the Mönchsberg, Hohensalzburg Salzburg as well as the Franziskischlössl on the Kapuzinerberg are all incomparable addresses for your special day.

Romantic Churches for the Day of Days

Salzburg as „Rome of the North“ impresses with many romantic churches that make for the perfect setting for this important day: The church of St. Peter’s is located in the heart of the city and is considered the cradle of Salzburg. Both churches of Mülln and Maria Plain are important pilgrimage churches. And with their nicely exposed locations you also get the perfect surroundings for exceptional pictures.

Professionals with Experience

As for making arrangements for the big day, Salzburg is home to a whole array of agencies who organize weddings tailored to the wishes of happy couples. From the wedding garter, make-up and wedding gown, to the floral decorations, accommodations and catering, to that wedding carriage, a cocktail reception, photographer and hairdresser – they will take care of all of those things on your behalf, so that you can truly enjoy your special day.
