This magnificent palace already appeared in our list of gorgeous castles to get married in Germany, and it is definitely worth of being listed again. The Schloss Solitude is a wonderful venue for medium or large weddings. Its rooms are among the most beautiful places created in the Duchy of Württemberg in the 18th century. The White Hall is completely breathtaking! If you want to have a church wedding, the historical chapel is a great option.

To make your life easier, The Sonnenhof will take care of pretty much everything: catering, free speakers, music and childcare. A really good option for practical brides!
3. Schloss Monrepos
I couldn’t talk about venues to get married around Stuttgart, without mentioning Schloss Monrepos. Being so close to where I live, this is one of the first places I think when I imagine a classical wedding in Ludwigsburg. The castle view and the park around will definetely delight you! There are so many options of creative places to make some wonderful couple pictures in Monrepos, that it is hard to not spend the whole day just photographing.
The winter garden can fit up to 100 people. There are also different options of rooms that can be arranged in individual concepts on request, and can fit up to 120 people. No matter what you choose, there is always the possibility of enjoying the charming view of the castle park and lake. Their team also offer help to you plan all the little details: from food, through decoration, music or even fireworks. How easier can that be?
4. Bootshaus Gerber Bräu
In the Gerber Park area you can find some really amazing venues for your big day. My favorite one is their new building, the Bootshaus, that can fit up to 110 people. With a terrace by the water and a rustic style that mix wood and industrial elements, this is a great place for a boho wedding close to Stuttgart.
The set up cost in 2017 for the venue was €700 and included the preparation of the space with table settings. If you are curious about the food options, you can choose between Swabian, Mediterranean or fish dishes. Right outside the Boothaus we can find brick walls, water and some gorgeous trees, which gives us a lot of place for creativity! Since everything is so close, this is the perfect location to have unique wedding photos without letting your guests waiting too long to celebrate with you!

High up in the Filstal you can see Schloss Filseck, built around 1230, in the time of the great Hohenstaufen Emperor Frederick II. The unique ambience in the atrium of the courtyard and the castle rooms will amaze you!
