Couples wishing to get married in southern Austria - the Kaernten(or Carinthia) Region - often believe that their choice is restricted to the Region's lakes and those towns surrounding the lakes. But, for those seeking a ' town' wedding in this Region, Villach should be their first choice.

Served by the airports of Klagenfurt (40 minutes) and Salzburg (under 3 hours) and all main rail routes, this 12th century town, and its neighbouring thermal spa of Warmbad Villach, offer a setting suitable for all occasions.

Villach - a perfect Austian wedding locationSituated in the pedestrianised centre of the town, the old Patrician house, occupied by Romantik Post Hotel, welcomes every guest 'as though they were the King'!! In 1552 Emporor Karl V was the first of many ' royals' to stay here. Surrounded by mountains, and with the River Drau flowing nearby, this Category A hotel now offers civil wedding ceremonies which may be held in the Furstenzimmer, followed by celebrations, large or small, in the Kamin Halle and/or the Orangerie.

Fr.Natascha Kreibich is your resident 'hostess' and coordinator and will cater for your every wish. Local arrangements are in place for photographers, horse drawn carriages, flowers, hairdressing, make-up and all the many items which can be an essential part of your 'dream wedding day'.

Accommodation of various grades are available in the hotel, from the Emporor Suite to the various double bedrooms 'Laura Ashley'. There are 5 suites and 50 comfort rooms. Each suite has its own living room. For guests who are looking for alternative accommodation either in Villach or nearby Warmbad, there are a number of options available. The hotel is open all year.

To follow the wedding day, relax on the wonderful Woerthersee at lively Velden, tranquil Maria Woerth, or interesting Poertschach, all reachable by road or rail within a very short time, using the excellent and reliable local transport services.
