Unforgettable: the Ehrenburg gives your wedding, birthday party and any other special occasion the magnificent, sophisticated setting they deserve. Your guests receive a hospitable welcome as they gather in the courtyard with a drink and snack of your choice.
According to an ancient tradition you can confirm your marriage vows beneath roses in bloom on the high balcony and quiz the mysterious Ehrenburg Wedding Oracle as to your future.
Our rustic great hall then invites you to come and celebrate in style. Just like the castle lords of yore you choose which cultural programme is to accompany your fanciful mediaeval feast with replica stoneware or distinguished festive dinner decked out in fine linen and crystal. Our kitchen will spoil you and your guests with carefully coordinated menus and sumptuous buffets.
Plan your festivities as you desire with the help of our creative expertise!
Registrar Rolf Görres would be happy to fulfil a very special wish: you can be married in a civil ceremony in the ancient vaults of the upper ward or in the great hall – just like a knight asking for the hand of his noble lady. In fine summer weather you can celebrate your marriage out in the open air on the high balcony or great bastion or in a splendid pavilion. A church wedding is also possible on consultation with the local parishes.
We would be happy to reserve St Michael’s Chapel in the idyllic neighbouring village of Alken on the River Moselle for your wedding.

In the summer (May to October) our castle hotel has 55–60 beds (including accommodation in our mediaeval tent).
