A lot of romance and a wonderful castle park at the gates of Munich

The baroque castle of Aufhausen (near Erding) is picturesquely situated on a hill in the park, surrounded by its farm buildings, which are full of life: stables, studios, workshops, offices, apartments and a playground for the children of the many young families who live here. Among the castle dwellers are also peacocks, chickens, geese and horses.

With 'own' S-Bahn station 'Aufhausen' (S2 direction Erding) and direct connection to the intersection-free Flughafenentangente East (FTO) Munich Airport can be reached in about 15 minutes and the city of Munich in 30-40 minutes.  

The combination of idyllic surroundings and easy accessibility make up the great charm of this location.  


Schloss Aufhausen was first mentioned in documents in 788. At that time it belonged to the monastery Mondsee. Since that time many famous Bavarian families have lived here: the counts Preysing, the counts Armannsperg, the counts Fugger, as well as the families v. Eisenreich, v. Auer and in 1596 the mayor of Munich, Christoph v. Schrenk-Notzing.  

Built around 1720 Freiherr v. Egloff the present castle in Baroque style and builds the castle chapel, which was dedicated to St. Magdalene.

The festival rooms

... the Kapellensaal

The venerable beamed ceiling, the floorboards and the furnishings with selected antiques give the chapel hall from the 16th century a cozy atmosphere. A perfect setting for any event: for your dream wedding at festive tables as well as for company anniversary, birthday or baptism. You can also use the hall for seminars and conferences.  

... and the knight's hall

The five-meter high knight's hall is the main hall of the castle. With its magnificent ancestral images and the floor-to-ceiling, glazed gate to the terrace overlooking the castle park, it offers the elegant setting for any kind of event.  

The Knights' Hall is connected to the chapel hall so that dancing and eating can be separated if necessary.  

The castle chapel

The chapel was consecrated in 1720 by Prince-Bishop Johann Franz von Freising and lovingly restored by the current owner in the past decades. Equipped with valuable furniture from the time, as well as a baroque organ, it is the ideal place of reflection and is suitable for Protestant and Catholic weddings, as well as for baptisms.

The Amalfi Room

The Amalfisaal, named after the wall painting with the southern Italian coast, is ideal for receptions, for a retreat at the bar, as a space for the buffet or as a space for special activities such as photo shooting and the like. used.  

The bowling alley

An insider tip for the cozy evening with friends is the historic bowling alley from 1897, which is still in its original state and still fully functional the fun only. At the wooden tables or on the awning covered terrace there is room for a hearty snack for smaller events up to 30 people. A wood stove and subtle ceiling heaters allow usability even on colder days and evenings.  

The castle park

In the magnificent castle park, unforgettable parties can be celebrated. When the weather is fine you can enjoy a buffet, menu or flying buffet under the shelter of the trees. Upon request, a marquee can be set up.  

The highlight in the park is certainly the legendary, centuries-old, mighty blood beech, often called 'wedding beech'. Here, in recent years, hundreds of people willing to marry have given their marriage promise. In free weddings as in church ceremonies, whether for men & women or for same-sex couples. The atmosphere under the tree is unique: the last steps of the couple in front of the Rosenrondell in front of the castle to the book are among the moments that nobody forgets.  

The bridal suite

An important part of a successful wedding is in any case the romantic wedding night. Especially for these is in the historic castle an impressive bridal suite for the newlyweds available. The directly adjacent (independent from the castle), Hotel am Schlossberg 'is available for the accommodation of wedding guests. There are no long ways, so it can be celebrated carefree.

Whether white doves, balloons or baroque fireworks - individual wishes and surprises can be implemented without any problems. The ballrooms are ideal for up to 130 guests.

I used their services for my wedding

My brother married at Schloss Aufhausen and we were thrilled: a wonderful atmosphere, very friendly and courteous service, much offered for small guests (trampoline, playing area etc.). Everyone was completely satisfied! For me (where I work in the industry, but Schloss Aufhausen did not know then) a perfect wedding location!

Dreamlike wedding location indoors and out! Great huge park with wedding tree for free weddings, nice rooms inside with terrace, nice bridal suite. Overall, a very stylish ambience and you are among themselves.

Very sympathetic, professional support in the planning / preparation and also on the wedding day itself by Giorgio, the administrator of the castle. The recommended service providers from the area as well as the in-house wines were excellent.

We were more than satisfied and can absolutely recommend Schloss Aufhausen as a wedding location!

The castle Aufhausen is a wedding location, which leaves nothing to be desired in good weather.

We celebrated our wedding in the castle chapel with about 55 guests. We were able to enjoy coffee and cake under the beautiful old beech tree in the shade of wonderful sunshine and warm temperatures. The wine bar incl. Bridal hijacking in the historic bowling alley with terrace in the outdoor area was another highlight. The dinner followed by a celebration in the Ritter- and Kapellensaal as well as the bar area in the open air contributed to a wonderful end to our wedding.

All service providers recommended by Giorgio (Cartering "Food Creation", florist "Elisabeth Strohmair Kreationen" & beverage supplier "Wieser-Bräu") have made a highly commendable impression. Likewise, everyone has contributed absolutely with their professionalism and great support to our dream wedding.

The wine recommendation from the side of the castle "Weingut Rueff-Röchling Langen-Schenk GbR" rounded off a dream wedding both in the wine bar and at dinner.

It was and remains an unforgettable experience to have married in the castle Aufhausen!

Sonja and Florian
