3,440 metres above sea level – an altitude that has been known to take the breath away of many. In this case, it is good that the bride and groom only have to say, “Yes”. You can certainly prepare for the ups and downs of married life at Café 3.440 on the Pitztal Glacier. With fascinating panoramic mountain views and the Wildspitze Peak within sight, it is a truly unique wedding Location.

There is no need to worry; all guests normally manage to stay dry during weddings on a ship at Lake Achensee – with the exception of the tears of joy that may be shed. Nevertheless, your wedding on the “Tirolean Sea” will undoubtedly be a memorable experience.

It takes a little bit of courage to enter into the bond of marriage. It is even more courageous, however, to do it on a mountain peak. Nonetheless, it is certainly worth the effort, as Salven Chapel on the Hohen Salve Peak is sure to bring good fortune to your marriage.
