We have been greatly hosted in this unique location with more than 200 scientists coming from any corner of the world. Impressive view, supreme location, hospitality, top-class wines from Trentino-South Tyrol, fine dinner and very supportive manager and staff. The most frequent comments were "astonishing" and "outstanding". And as organiser I must confirm that!

We celebrated our wedding on 3rd October 2014 in this amazing castle!!! The first thing I would like to do is complement Veronika and Martin, they were truly amazing, always available to answer any questions and going the extra mile to make our special day so amazing!!!! The waiters and waitresses were also amazing! Very friendly and the best at what they do! Thank you so much!!! We highly recommend Castel Katzenzungen for your wedding or event, the castle in itself is beautiful and the garden is perfect for an aperitivo. I really cannot say enough about the amazing location and staff at this castle, you have to go there and see for yourself. We had a truly magical wedding day there!!! Emma and Mauro

We got married there in late June 2013. Beforehand, we never spent nearly as much time on anything as on this wedding party location selection and preparation phase. We went from Ecuador to Thailand and through all the central european country's locations. We wanted something that is intimate, yet of utmost high quality and absolutely away from any crowds. That criteria by definition excludes any hotel (especially those advertising MICE - meeting, incentives, congresses and events, anywhere, since you always have other guests running around your party and also, when it comes to food selection, one wants to speak to THE cook who actuallly prepares YOUR meal rather than some sales manager. On top of that, since marriage is something to last forever, we wanted it to be in place that had been standing equally strong for the past centuries. And, equally important, it had to be in a region where the local culture is honest, friendly and welcoming. So far to our criteria. If you, dear Reader, share those, keep on reading. Location I will not go into the castle's location details as you can retrieve those from any map tool or the Katzenzungen website. Venue The party takes place in three gorgeous locations onsite. The cocktail reception in the castle's garden which also neatly caters for some cooler spots in the shadow on a hot summer day such as the one we had. Depending on the size of the group, you may want to discuss the arrangement of the bar and the tables but in any way, what the team there prepares for you is perfect as they are true professionals with notable experience. Dinner For the dinner function, you use the entry level hall with its annex rooms if needed. That gives the perfect setting that is just beautiful and absolutely mind-blowing. You can chose for nearly all possible seating arrangements so there is a comfortable arrangement for nearly any size of group. Their standard decoration, table linen, candles, cuttlery etc. fits perfect and is of high quality so you wont have to run after these things as this is the case in other places. One thing: ask for the chair linen. They come at a very small extra charge but the looks a truly worth it. Menu The Castel works exclusively with a renowned cook from the nearby village. You discuss the menu directly with him. That was the utmost important item for us. The cook also owns a hotel and restaurant in the area. We discussed the menu with him roughly 6 months before the party. We were speechless with the ideas he had and just sat there withim already anxious to taste all the delicacies he had mentioned. The special thing was that all his courses were made locally with local ingredients and prepared to the absolute perfection. AND, the menu is cooked in the castel. No catering an buffet with semi-cooked and semi-warm food. Wine We had our preference and simply notified the Castel. It was not problem to purchase what we had selected. Also a great service that one is not obliged to drink what is already on site. Party, dance and bar The first floor hall, roughly the same in size as the entry level hall, offers all the space you need to dance, party and celebrate the mandatory parts such as the wedding cake and dance. Take their DJ recommendation Mr K.E. - he is truly brilliant as well. Next door, on the same floor, is the old castle kitchen that had been transformed into a bar. In there, you can serve any midnight snack, coffee and drinks and let you guests have a smoke if they want. Staff Service was truly excellent and efficient and very personal. Also, another item in that context, with the Katzenzungen team, there is no discussion about the hours. You tell them until when your party lasts and they cater for that. You wont have these sudden surprisese that service staff starts to disappear at 2am because their shift is over. At the end of the night, when you leave, they light up the candles as you walk out. Truly beautiful. I could of course go on nearly endlessly at this stage. I am aware that a too long review is also hard to read. Please feel free to message me for any particular question. I am happy to help and to recommend the Castel Katzenzungen. I think, concluding, the roses go to the castle team. It has been very pleasant working with them through the selection and preparation phase. Every promise was kept and the expectations were exceeded. The secret, in my view, is that when working with Katzenzungen, you always speak to the person who will the actually be on site delivering the service. That is also valid for all other suppliers we had (that were mostly recommended to us by the castle team). Such a setup is invaluable as the last thing you want for your weeding is having to speak to constantly changing sales staff and, at worst, dealing with call centers. It is also a question of pride. The people at Katzenzungen take pride in their work and in how they do. You are not only buying a service, you buy a promise for excellence from an honest person. Well done!
