Seefeld-i-Tirol

Seefeld

This famous alpine resort,1000 metres above Innsbruck, conducts its civil wedding ceremonies on the first floor of the Town Hall (Rathaus), in a pleasant room suitable for between 4 and 64 persons seated. Between May and October, a non-Catholic service or blessing for up to 35 persons may follow in the famous Seekirchl. At other times it is possible for such a service to be held in nearby Reith, but in both cases it is necessary to provide your own english speaking priest, though an organist is available. Catholic wedding Mass is available in the parish church by arrangement with the local german speaking priest.

To follow the wedding ceremony, take a sleigh ride in winter, or a buggy ride in summer around the perimeter of the village before enjoying the celebratory sparkling wine and "nibbles", traditional in an Austrian wedding. The evening wedding gala dinner may be Seefeld-i-Tirolheld in your hotel or many other suitable locations within the village. Here, every option is available, since no "packages" are offered, and personal choice is paramount. We now have the services of a local wedding co-ordinator from UK, Jan Anderson, who also acts as interpreter for the wedding ceremonies, and also our longtime friend from Yorkshire, Anne, who always knows who is the current best hairdresser in the village at the best prices!
