Function Rooms at Blankenburg Castle
Are you looking for a special place for your event? Not only can you get married at Blankenburg Castle - we also offer an appealing setting for company and family celebrations, seminars, conferences and much more.
Since the beginning of 2012, many rooms in the castle are usable again, even if the old splendor has not yet returned completely. But that is precisely what makes it so special. Together with the exposed location and the unique atmosphere of the castle courtyard, Blankenburg Castle offers an extraordinary setting.
In combination with an interesting guided tour through the castle, your event will be a very special experience for your guests.
The theater hall in Blankenburg Castle - built in 1727-1731 as a redoubt hall - is located on the remaining rocky cliff of Blankenstein on the back side of the New Wing. In the first half of the 19th century a stage was added. The theater then remained essentially unchanged to this day.
One of the famous guests of yesteryear was Caroline Neuber, principal and pioneer of German theatrical art, who frequently performed in the castle with her troupe of actors. She is considered one of the greatest German actresses.
The theater can accommodate up to 240 people with concert seating. Access is via the New Wing from the palace courtyard. The passage to the theater hall is on the 2nd floor. A wardrobe and sanitary facilities are located on the 1st floor.
From the theater you have direct access to the castle terrace. From here you can enjoy an excellent view over Blankenburg. Especially in summer, the west-facing terrace invites you to linger in the evening hours.

We will be glad to receive your request if you would like to use premises in our castle. All arrangements are made individually. Your event should not be contrary to the monument character. In addition, some things are not possible due to the historic structure.
In most cases, chairs and tables can be used. For catering on a larger scale, we can gladly name suitable contacts who are already familiar with our premises.
Our power supply is also sufficiently dimensioned for larger needs and the accesses are easy to reach. Our premises can also be used in winter.
The best thing is to make an impression yourself. We look forward to your visit and your inquiry!
We will be happy to forward your request to the experts of our wedding working group. For more information about wedding ceremonies and celebrations in the Great Castle, please see here.
Special guided tours
Guided tours for groups are also possible outside our regular hours. We will gladly organize this for you.
The Gray Hall is located on the 2nd floor of the New Wing. Originally intended as a dining room, it was used in various ways, for example as a billiard room. It has similar interior design as the Imperial Hall in the Old Wing, only somewhat less elaborately designed; the wall mirrors and supraports did not contain portraits, but pictures with putti, roses, vines and others, appropriate to the Baroque understanding of art and the original use.
One of the last major celebrations in the Gray Hall was held on the occasion of the baptism of Princess Friederike of Hanover in 1917. Friederike later became Queen of Greece and is the mother of the former Queen Sophia of Spain.
The Gray Hall is the official branch of the registry office of the city of Blankenburg and offers wedding couples space for about 60 guests. But you can not only marry in the Gray Hall: up to 90 seats offers, for example, a concert seating.
The side rooms of the Gray Hall can also be used and offer your buffet or bar enough space. There is also a small kitchen nearby.
The location directly opposite the theater makes the Graue Saal ideal for break catering at concerts or for socializing after events.
Our café on the first floor of the New Wing is usually open every Saturday during our castle tours. It is also popular with groups for social gatherings during special tours outside of our opening hours. In addition, it is the place to go during concerts before admission begins. But you can also use our café for your event on a small scale.
Our café can comfortably seat up to 40 people. The chairs and tables can be arranged for various occasions. However, there have already been small presentations there as well. Food and drinks can be easily prepared in the directly connected kitchen. Sanitary facilities are also located on the first floor.
The courtyard of our castle is of course not a classic event space, but can also be used for your event. The unique - in summer often described by our guests as Mediterranean - atmosphere you can also enjoy.
The character of the four-winged complex has been preserved from the conversion to a baroque residence in the 18th century until today. The tower risalit is still the eye-catcher and immediately catches the eye of every visitor. Except for the Old Wing, moreover, already shine again in fresh colors.
It is important to know that all setups must fit through our gate entrance. Unfortunately, this does not allow for all conceivable events. But it does not prevent us from holding larger activities such as the annual Rock Night or our Castle Christmas.
