stylish ambience

Schloss von Hammerstein

A traditional manor house with Renaissance castle dating from 1590, set in 65,000 square meters of picturesque gardens and parkland in the Schaumburg region, with spectacular views over the Deister and the extensive estate.


Impressive castle garden

For every occasion a unique and exclusive setting

Since its acquisition in 1673 by Friedrich Christoph Freiherr von Hammerstein-Gesmold, Major General to Queen Christine of Sweden, the castle has been an integral part of the family for twelve generations.

With its historic and stylish ambience and its impressive castle garden, Schloss von Hammerstein offers you the perfect setting for your civil ceremony, wedding reception, birthday party, corporate event or castle tour for truly any occasion.

Tie the knot in over a thousand years old evangelical church in Apelern village center.

After the church wedding, you can reach the castle on foot in just five minutes, through the idyllic boulevard. Receive your first congratulations as a couple over a sip of bubbly in the palace garden and cut your wedding cake in the historic Orangery. While your guests are strolling among thousands of perennials in the flower garden, they are beaming into the camera on the picturesque white bridges and in front of the fountains. In the evening, the vaulted hall bathed in candlelight also invites you to a reception before the start of the wedding ceremony in the castle.
