About The Schloss Hünigen Wedding Venue

Schloss Hünigen has been a part of history in some form or another for over 800 years. Schloss Hünigen was first mentioned as a settlement in a document dating back to the 12th century. In the centuries since, it has seen several iterations, additions, and renovations. In 1922, after WWI had ended, the castle was opened to the public as a hotel. Schloss Hünigen offered rejuvenating treatments like healing massages and whey and herbal baths. While consistently renovated to keep up with changing times over the years, it received a total refurbishment and expansion in the late 1990s, reopening as a 4-star hotel, the Parkhotel Schloss Hünigen. It underwent another massive renovation in 2013, and today, it hosts guests worldwide as a remarkable 4-star destination. 

Schloss Hünigen is home to 49 beautiful hotel rooms, each decorated with modern, comfortable furnishings. The Wellness area features various saunas, a steam bath, adventure showers, a whirlpool, and a relaxation area for each guest. They also offer luxurious spa treatments as a nod to the hotel’s early days as a place of rejuvenating hospitality. A world-class restaurant and a cozy bar make Schloss Hünigen the perfect destination for a relaxing mountain getaway where you’ll never have to leave the comfort of the hotel. 

Details of the Grounds

Schloss Hünigen offers couples the chance to host an open-air ceremony in Castle Park, surrounded by towering trees and lush gardens. In the warmer months, the clearing comes alive with vibrant greenery, the perfect romantic setting for an unforgettable vow exchange. While you and your partner escape for photos following your ceremony, guests can enjoy a refreshing aperitif beneath a grand sequoia tree, grazing on a buffet of seasonal delights prepared by their culinary team. 

When it’s time to celebrate, you can gather your guests in one of two rooms: the historic von May Saal or the more modern Haller Saal. The von May Saal reflects the castle qualities of the hotel with high ceilings, grand windows, and ornate chandeliers. It’s the perfect setting for an elegant celebration with up to 60 guests. Haller Saal is a more contemporary space with unique light fixtures that can adapt to any wedding vision. With room for up to 120 people, you can also take advantage of the adjoining private terrace that boasts beautiful views of Castle Park. 

If you’re not quite ready to call it a night, head down to the Castle bar for a few more drinks and an unhurried end to the best day in your love story (so far.)
