Getting Married in Austria
Austria, along with neighbouring Switzerland, is the winter sports capital of Europe. However, it is just as popular for summer tourists who visit its historic cities, villages and of course, the Alps, which cover three quarters of the country. Austria has warm summer days of up to 30 degrees and winters with mountain temperatures of -10 degrees, and there’s always something to do, from skiing, to hiking and biking, to relaxing in the warm thermal water of a therapeutic spa. Austria will greet you with an appealing selection of designer hotels and historic stately homes, as well as alpine chalets in the midst of nature.
This is the perfect destination for your wedding during the winter season or the summer season. As soon as the mountains are covered in snow, its time for your own magical fairytale with romantic horse drawn sleigh-rides. For the more adventurous during your stay you can experience the sheer bliss of skiing on the powdery slopes.
In summer you will be surrounded by old chestnut trees, lush green meadows, waterfalls and glistening white glaciers crowning the deep blue skies.
Your wedding ceremony can take place in a chapel on the hotel grounds or for a catholic ceremony, in a small romantic church close to the village. After the wedding ceremony we will organise your wedding reception to take place in a four star hotel in a romantic secret valley.
This location offers the perfect scenery, famous cuisine and excellent service to make your day very special.
Mondsee is a beautiful small Austrian town with breathtaking views over crystal clear lakes and superb mountain scenery. It is only situated 30 minutes from Salzburg city. Mondsee has so much natural beauty to offer, the lake is the warmest in the area and can reach 27c in summer months, ideal for swimming water-sports, boat trips and diving. There are plenty of other activities to do in the area walking, golf or just relax in one of the hotel wellness centres.
Civil ceremonies can take place in the princess room in Mondsee castle which was formally a monastery in the centre of Mondsee. Church ceremonies can take place in the Mondsee Basilica where the famous “Sound of Music” was filmed 40 years ago.
After the ceremony take a horse drawn carriage to the lakeside to take some wedding pictures with superb mountain scenery.
