Make Your Dreams Come True With a Switzerland Castle Wedding
Chemin du Pont-Levis, 1522 Lucens / Switzerland
Firstly, protruding out from amidst the rolling hills and farmland of Lucens is the stunning Château de Lucens. Dating back to the 13th century, the castle also has remarkable turrets and stonework that will transport you back to a distant era. The ancient chapel is a beautiful and historic place to exchange your vows, followed by a celebration in the intimate and cave-like Sherlock Holmes room or a dinner in one of Chateau de Lucens’ beautifully detailed salons.
Avenue de Chillon 21, CH 1820 Veytaux, Suisse
Set upon a rocky island, Chillon Castle is an ancient structure once used to help control passage from the north to the south of Europe. With origins dating back to the 12th century, the castle as it currently stands is the result of centuries of restoration and renovation. Your wedding can occur in one of two rooms: the Aula Magna, used as a feasting hall in the Middle Ages, or the Castellan’s Dining Hall, which has been hosting guests for over 700 years!
At the Castle 1, 1608 Oron-le-Châtel
Chateau d’Oron, or Oron Castle, is a magnificent structure that looks like something out of a fairy tale. It is also a historic monument that has been “renovated with taste and passion.” It is now a beautiful space to host a Switzerland castle wedding celebration. While it has several spaces for unique events, The Hall of Justice is a popular choice. It serves as a cozy, inviting space with stately wooden columns and a large stone fireplace at one end of the room.

Portes des Iris gives off more countryside estate castle vibes than Middle Ages castle vibes. Home to some of the most spectacular gardens in Switzerland, it’s a bright and charming venue for a wedding. Utilize the gardens and terraces for a breathtaking natural ceremony backdrop. Their indoor event spaces are beautiful balances of historic architecture, modern lighting, and amenities for a refreshing take on an old Switzerland castle wedding.
Schlossstrasse 16, CH-3700 Spiez
Spiez Castle offers the best of a Swiss castle venue. It’s home to a remarkable mid-11th-century church and a 12th-century castle, set on the shores of the breathtaking Lake Thun. Spectacular views of the sparkling blue water, set amidst rocky mountain peaks, are truly the pinnacle of a Spiez Castle wedding.
