A Royal Wedding

Getting married at the Belvedere Palace on Pfingstberg

Perhaps as a child you dreamed of getting married in a palace? This dream can come true for you at the Belvedere on Pfingstberg. In the months from May to October, the Standesamt Potsdam and the Förderverein Pfingstberg e.V. offer you the chance to experience an exceptional wedding in a very romantic setting high above the city of Potsdam.

Located in the eastern tower of the palace, the “Maurische Kabinett” (Moorish Chamber) with its resplendent decor ‒ including ceiling paintings, marble floors and noble red, blue and gold tiles ‒ is an unforgettable venue in which to say “I do.”

On the Pfingstberg, the most beautiful and important day in life can be celebrated in many ways: Toast together with your guests at a festive reception following the wedding ceremony or enjoy a large wedding reception. And while your guests enjoy the most beautiful views of Potsdam during a guided tour of the historic ensemble, you will have plenty of time to have your wedding photos taken.

You can also rent the “Maurische Kabinett” for a free ceremony. Don’t hesitate to contact us, as we will be happy to assist you.
