Marriage in Blankenburg Castle

Das Barockschloss Blankenburg – das größte noch erhaltene Welfenschloss – ist genau der richtige Ort für Ihre Märchenhochzeit. Im Grauen Saal des Neuen Flügels können Sie sich standesamtlich trauen lassen und anschließend zum Beispiel auf der Schloss-Terrasse Ihre Hochzeitsgäste mit einem Glas Sekt verwöhnen.

Get married in style

Trauung im Grauen Saal

Under magnificent chandeliers in the Gray Hall the civil wedding becomes a festive ceremony. The over 115 m2 large hall with its up to 60 seats offers relatives and friends enough space. The Gray Hall was already used for ceremonies in Duke's time. The last big event was the christening of Friederike, daughter of Duke Ernst-August and Duchess Viktoria-Luise, in 1917. Friederike later became Queen of Greece and is the mother of Queen Sophia of Spain. Who does not feel like a princess or prince in this fairy-tale ambience?

What we offer


Since 2012 it has been possible to hold a civil wedding in the Grey Hall. On request, we can also provide you with music from tape, decorative floral decorations or companions in baroque costumes.
