climbing or skiing, the opportunity to get married in a charming,

Signing the civil registrar's marriage cetificate.

In the Republic of Austria it is the law that everyone should be married 
in a short civil ceremony before getting married or blessed in a church
or chapel ceremony afterwards. There are some other important rules 
and regulations for UK citizens marrying there that Ingrid's team will 
be pleased to help clarify for you.  It's v. important that key paperwork
is properly sorted out for you when you book your wedding with them.
You wouldn't want to get the legal paperwork wrong !


A beautiful bridal bouquet. Weddings in Ellmau.

Couples who love the spirituality of the mountains may probably 
appreciate the idea of getting married with their friends and friends.
In the past many members of walking and skiing club members have 
combined their wedding celebrations and honeymoons with several 
days of unforgettable mountain experiences for their loved ones.  
For such couples the Austrian Alps provide all they could possibly wish 
for....superb surroundings, beautiful churches, first rate sincere hospitality,
excellent food and accommodation and a really warm welcoming relaxing 

A big extra bonus of going to a ski resort are the cable cars to show granny 
and grandfather the views from the tops of the lovely mountains !  There are
loads of things to keep all the family happy and contented throughout 
their stay !  You may see wild deer in the woods with eagles flying high
overhead.  Live music often fills the air in and around the hotel and you'll
often hear music when you're out walking in the mountains.

Looking down a chairlift towards Ellmau.  The magnificent mountains are part of 
the Wilder Kaiser "Wild Emperor" range running from Kufstein and Sank Johann 
in Tirol, the two nearest towns. 

It's truly is a most wonderful and exciting place in which to just relax 
and from which to explore the wonderful surrounding area...and the 
local chairlifts and mountain railway and bubble lifts run all through
the summer to allow even frail people to enjoy the stunning views from
charming mountain top restaurants and traditional walkers' mountain
refuges and "huts" which are located at regular intervals along many 
of the mountain walking trails and easier tracks.  The ice cream is 
inexpensive - and the local tradition of eating apple strudel and huge
wedges of black forest gateaux and cakes of all kinds is for some of us
a good enough reason to travel and holiday there any time of the year.

The Austrians are very children friendly - so don't be surprised to find a
host of swings and roundabouts and trampolines outside mountain
restaurants to keep the little ones happy at the tops of the mountains 
too.   Everybody in the mountains seems to say "hello" ( and mean it ) 
when you meet them...and the people you may meet walking in the 
woodlands and forests and hay making fields seem very pleased to 
welcome you to their mountain home.  In the high meadows you'll often
hear the musical tinkling of cows with bells around their necks chomping 
on the lush grass that makes such excellent ice cream.

How to say hello when in Tyrol  :-)

       " Gruss Gott ! "   = "Hello ! "   literally..."God's Greeting"
" Servus ! " =         " Hi ! "  " only usually heard locally.

Fancy a really cool wedding in the Austrian Alps ?

Why not hold your winter wedding ceremony in an ice chapel on top of a stunning mountain
served by a modern cable car ?  - and if you wish you can also spend one or more nights of 
your honeymoon in a surprisingly warm reindeer fur and fleece lined igloo ?

" No ice in my Vodka Martini, please Moneypenny ! "

Click on the photographs above or below for a .pdf information sheet on the igloo facilities.

For many years it has been quite popular for some Scots skiiers and mountainers to marry 
in the Alps and bring along their families and relations for not just a day but a whole week 
of celebrations in the wonderful mountains of Austria. 

Above, a newly wedded couple being congratulated by the Austrian "Registrar"  who 
conducts civil marriages in the pleasant civil marriages suite in nearby Soll.  Let people
like Ingrid and Claudia make all the arrangements - you just supply the documents and 
information they need in advance of the big day - and then you can RELAX knowing
everything will work right first time. Austrian organisation is legendary.

For some couples, getting married all alone on a fairy tale
island beach away from it all  is their ideal wedding venue. 
Even their witnesses may be complete strangers.

However,  many couples still agree wedding vows are best 
shared in front of  family and friends - so they really want 
to get married and make their wedding vows ( or renew their 
vows ) in front of a group of family & close friends in pleasant 
or spectacular and romantic surroundings.  In Ellmau village
couples can combine their wedding and honeymoon with a 
low cost family holiday in the superb scenery of the WilderKaiser
Mountains of the Austrian Alps.  You will be happily surprised at
how unexpensive hotel accommodation is in the Alps in the
warmer months when all the skiiers have left.  Even though the
Euro is stronger now than in the past you can still enjoy several
nights or a week of first rate accommodation and marvellous food 
at a price you'd find hard to match anywhere comparable in the UK.

packed with Snowboarders and Skiiers. However, in Summertime it

Where could be any more spectacular,  romantic or photogenic a 
setting than Ellmau in the beautiful Austrian Alps ? Click on any of 
the photographs above or below to see some enlargements and
see if you agree with us that the beautiful skiing village of Ellmau 
is perfect for an Alpine Wedding in Austria's wonderful Tyrol.  

Ellmau is located on the edge of the famous " Skiwelt " skiing and 
snowboarding area and is a popular holiday destination all year 
round.  In the Summer months when the ski lifts are still running
there are far less people around ( mainly walkers ) and so the
prices of bedrooms and facilities are significantly cheaper than
you might expect.  Even the very best hotels which have lots of
repeat summer visitors can offer fantastic deals for groups in
the summer months if booked in advance.   "Weddings in Tyrol"
was launched several years ago to offer UK couples and their
families really great prices for holding their wedding at the popular
Hotel Hochfilzer in the very centre of the lovely village of Ellmau.

The  hotel has a very long and proud family history of
offering visitors an especially high level of hospitality and service
 - and facilities including a beautiful swimming pool, saunas,
steam rooms and massage treatment areas, beautiful en suite 
bedrooms - many with balconies decked with flower boxes in 
Typical Austrian style. There are fabulous views all around
and sports people will enjoy walking, mountain biking ( hire shops
right next door ), swimming in the hotel pool and in the huge public
pools area nearby. There's  access to a 27-hole golf course just a 
few hundred metres away plus the services of resident walking 
and climbing guides - and much more.  For the more sedate there
are lots of lovely shops and cafes and gentle activities such as
riding in ponies and traps, riding the scenic cable cars and 
Ellmau's famous "Seilbahn" mountain railway, reading by the
poolside....and exploring local visitor attractions such as watching
the  marvellous Spanish Riding School's horses being trained at the 
Stanglewirt riding stables nearby.


When calling do please remember that Austria is one hour ahead of the UK. The hotel reception desk in usually staffed until around 9-30 pm Austrian time. If you hear a recorded message in German and don't understand, don't worry that's you in their musical queue system and your call will usually be answered by a person quite soon afterwards. Please ask them to speak with you in English and mention this Peak Activities Weddings in Tyrol web site when you call and you'll get a special wedding gift from us when your wedding is booked.

A flight from from Manchester airport creates 0.2 tonne of Carbon Dioxide - but by just one passenger on that flight planting one tree, the tree can live to consume many more times that flight's amount of extra CO2. You can arrange to plant one or more trees to celebrate your wedding and "do your bit" to fight global warming. We can even arrange for your guests to plant trees in "marry me" carbon neutral woodlands as part of their wedding gifts to you. You may also wish to plant a tree yourselves in the Alps.
