In the middle of the Kyffhäuser hills there towers a landmark of a very special kind.

On the Kyffhausen Imperial Fortress stands the particularly impressive and imposing 81-metre high Kyffhäuser Monument with the statue of Emperor Wilhelm I on horseback and the stone figure of Barbarossa, during whose reign the fortress complex was completed.

You can get married in the side chamber of the monument's tower, which can accommodate a maximum of 50 people. Then you can enjoy a glass of champagne on the high-level terrace with a magnificent view of the Goldene Aue, the Harz region and the Kyffhäuser Nature Reserve.
