to a beautiful wedding day

Getting married in the mountains

Bavaria. Mountains. Lake.

Celebrate your wedding in Garmisch-Partenkirchen by the idyllic and historical Lake Riessersee. With a fantastic view on the Wetterstein mountains. Our wedding location also provides the opportunity to perform a wedding ceremony in the open on our meadow. Getting married at Lake Riessersee in Bavaria: close to nature, individual, romantic. With a maximum of 60 people.

New enquiries

Due to the uncertain times right now as well as the already full calendar for 2021 and 2022 we currently aren't able to guarantee any additional wedding dates at the beautiful Riessersee. Therefore, we have stopped to take requests (for weddings for 2021 and 2022) until late summer 2021. We are looking forward to hear from you in the new year.

Wedding in the mountains

Getting married in Bavaria, in the mountains of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, is gorgeous in every season. Spring or summer weddings, when the clear mirror of lake Riessersee is reflecting the alps and the deep blue Bavarian heaven. A wedding in fall and winter could also be very attractive, if mulled wine and hot chocolate will be served by the fire.
