Nörvenich (bpb) Wedding at a castle is a special experience. Civil marriage ceremonies at the Nörvenich Castle are becoming more and more popular. To one of the most recent happy coulples belonged also a member of the German Army and his bride. She came all in white, which made quite an impression in this historical place. Comrades of the groom, all in uniforms, stood honor guard at the entrance to the Castle. This created for the great event in the life of these two young people a very special and festive atmosphere.

"The idea of the mayor Heinz-Jürgen Schüller, to use this best maintained historical building in the area for civil marriage ceremonies, has proved itself fortunate", says the Lord of the Castle and President of the Auropean Art Foundation, John G. Bodenstein. The Nörvenich Castle, with its Alexander Hall as the room for marriage ceremonies, is truly a unique historical place with its history going back centuries, all the way to the Roman times.
