        You want to get married in Vienna and ask yourself the question: Which location could I use for the wedding? Yes, finding a suitable wedding location in Vienna feels like a real Herculean task. There are so many great locations in Vienna. Finding the right one is definitely a challenge. On wedding portals there are endless places that would come into question for this special day. Often we feel overwhelmed by the multitude of possibilities. Wedding planning should be a source of joy, not frustration.

        So we've put together a few questions that will make the process easier and that you can ask yourself in advance... We also asked our Vienna foreign correspondent and gourmet Lisa what her tips for wedding locations in Vienna are. The article shows a small fraction of the many enchanting places that exist in Vienna to (hopefully) experience one of the most beautiful days in your life.

        In addition to the classic Viennese locations that we like and have already had good experiences with, we have also added more alternative wedding venues to the list. We are not wedding planners. But we have a lot of gut feeling and we are Viennese. So here are our recommendations.

        Where to start when planning a wedding in Vienna?

        Ask yourself in advance:

        - Large or small wedding? How many people will be celebrating?

        - Should it be more elegant and classic or casual and cosy? Of course, one does not necessarily exclude the other :).

        - A rich buffet or meals served to the table?

        - Registry office, free wedding ceremony, church wedding and subsequent celebration at two different locations or all in one place? 

        Roughly assessing these questions in advance already limits the search a little.

        The princely, imperial locations in Vienna

        Civil weddings can take place in wedding halls of the Vienna registry office, and in locations that belong to dream wedding venues

        Registrar's offices include the registrar's office Wien Zentrum, Landstraße, Favoriten, Hietzing, Ottakring, Brigittenau, Floridsdorf and Donaustadt. 

        Less official are wedding venues that belong to the dream wedding venues (see the list here). We have picked out a few delicacies for you. From the classics to more alternative, charming low budget locations. 

        Let's start with the classic postcard Vienna. In the first district we find - of course - the imperial, magnificent, imperial, history-bearing locations. Many well-known cafés and hotels are part of this. For example, the Grand Hotel, the Haas Haus or the Hotel Sacher. We were very surprised ourselves at all the places in Vienna where you can get married. For example, the Kunsthistorisches Museum and the Austrian National Library also come into question. Also the Mozart House. Even the Vienna City Hall, the Freyung in the Daun-Kinsky Palace, the Spanish Riding School and the Butterfly House in the Burggarten. But also the Salzgries and the Summer Stage offer their premises for weddings. Choice without end.

        For more glamorous, imperial fairytale weddings á la Sissi - perhaps even a palace? There is the Belvedere Palace, Palais Auersberg, the Lusthaus, Schönbrunn Palace or the Kaiserlodge Freudenau or the historic palace in the Augarten. Imperial glamour also abounds at the Albertina. And the Garden Palace Liechtenstein has an incredibly beautiful park! Vienna is a very princely place to celebrate!

        For those who like it a bit more modern and hip - there is also a wedding in the Museumsquartier.  

        But, apart from the classic, old Viennese First District locations. Where can I find charming, nice, affordable places to celebrate a wedding in a nice ambience? We have compiled a list for you below. 

        Alternative wedding venues in Vienna

          The Weingut am Reisenberg is quite charming. A down-to-earth and family-friendly place. A direct view of the vineyards and the city of Vienna from the garden. 
        • Piaristenkeller
          The Piaristenkeller is rustic and classic. A wide variety of wedding packages are available.

          Last, but not least, recommendations from our Vienna insider Lena and locations that are suitable for smaller celebrations
        • Sirbu
          A Heuriger where you can see uuuuuur-nett over Vienna. Only open in summer. ->
        • Skopik & Lohn
          Has super good food and is located in the 2nd district. We would say it's a rather upmarket place.
        • Josefinenhütte amKahlenberg
          Rustic and in the middle of nature. Super suitable for weddings with families and children.

        So yes, choosing a wedding venue in Vienna is not that easy. The agony of choice, that's how it could be described. There is a truly outstanding selection of wedding venues, although this is only a small sample of the possibilities.
