Situated in Schönau an der Triesting, approximately 25 km south of Vienna, Schloss Schönau offers one of the most romantic venues for weddings and celebrations imaginable.

Quality is the foremost priority for your hosts. From planning to execution, the seasoned team at Schloss Schönau is committed to providing top-tier service, facilities, and guidance. They are always right there at your side, ensuring your wedding unfolds flawlessly.

Every spot is special: the rose garden with a view of the Schloss beyond the pond, the ballroom with star-parquet flooring, the courtyard, the sailcloth marquee in the castle park, the Temple of the Night, the Pinakothek, the Refuge, and the historical wine cellar.

The expansive estate, with its fairytale castle, picturesque pond, historical bridges over romantic water courses, and ancient trees, also guarantees the perfect backdrop for beautiful wedding photos.

Good to know

Can I reserve the entire estate exclusively for my wedding or event?
On the day of your event, no other functions will be taking place at the estate. If you also book the apartments at the Hunting Lodge in addition to the suites in the Schloss, no other guests will be on the property at all.

What are marquee sailcloth tents?
These are luxurious tents crafted from patented sailcloth, hand-made in California. The high-tech fabric is waterproof, wind-resistant, and fire-retardant, but still allows a generous amount of daylight to filter through. The transparent, roll-up side walls mean the tents can be used in both sunny, warm weather as well as in wind and less favorable conditions. During the day, they let in natural light, and in the evening, strings of fairy lights give them a uniquely magical ambiance.

What is the Temple of the Night?
The Temple of the Night, woven in legend, is a source of fascination, especially for those who are drawn to mysticism. It is a garden grotto that leads through an underground labyrinth – symbolizing the "Path of Life" – and opens up into a central temple chamber.
