Trauung in der
Kapelle „Maria Schnee“

The chapel "Maria Schnee", built in 1874 by His Excellency Friedrich Damian Reichsgraf von Ingelheim, was superbly restored in 2008 with the help of private donors and the prize money from the Unterfränkischen Kulturstiftung.
Up to 65 people can be accommodated. With the agreement of the local parish office, both Catholic and ecumenical weddings can be performed there.

The bride and groom, as well as their guests, are entitled to up to two guided tours of the castle.
It has proven to be helpful if the bride and groom want to take photos undisturbed after the ceremony while the guests are being entertained with a guided tour of the castle.

Marriage at Mespelbrunn Castle

Trauraum im Schloss Mespelbrunn


For the bride and groom and their guests, a guided tour of the castle is included before or after the ceremony. The maximum capacity for the wedding ceremony in the castle's ceremony room is approximately 25 people. If the wedding party is larger, it is possible to book an additional guided tour.
One of your guests is welcome to play the piano for you.
On the castle grounds, there is the Café Pferdestall where you are welcome to hold a champagne reception. Countess Ingelheim personally takes care of the floral arrangements for your wedding.

If you would like to stay with us for a few more days, our Mill Cottage is available for you. You will love the tiled stove, fitted kitchen, small terrace, and the romantic location right by the water.

We are looking forward to your visit and appreciate your interest!
