Wedding in South Tyrol: luxury venue
On the hill above Appiano, when those lands were still part of the Holy Roman Empire, stands the castle Schloss Freudenstein. The hotel welcomes its guests with an exquisite combination of mystery and historical charm, noble prestige, and modern comforts.
A princely place that offers future spouses and guests all the charm of the history and hospitality of South Tyrol. Celebrating a wedding in a historic ballroom, within the striking ancient walls, is a dream that can come true in the castle Schloss Freudenstein.
In addition to the castles, this destination is sprinkled with exclusive and luxurious locations. An example? Stephen Pramstrahler’s famous Gatschof Luxury & Spa estate. Inside he brought together his greatest passions: love for Arabian horses, wine, and gastronomy, and great enthusiasm for the magnificence of the rock and his joy for art. A unique, extraordinary location, an ecstasy of pure beauty.
Gatschof Luxury & Spa is the perfect venue for an intimate wedding of up to thirty guests or an elopement with an elegant and refined quid. Magical places where you can let yourself be carried away by scents and flavours surrounded by wild nature.
Finally, whatever the location selected for your wedding reception, a specific element will certainly not be missing: the local doc menu. And if it is made by a starred chef, as often happens in these “corners of paradise”, everything will take on an even more special “flavour”…if not exclusive!
