Get married

The enchanting Merseburg Imperial Cathedral, the unique World Heritage Cathedral in Naumburg or the impressive St. Michael's Church in Zeitz make a wedding unforgettable. Couples can say "I do" at all three locations of the Combined Cathedral Chapter. 


Would you like to say "I do" in a magical place?

Merseburg Cathedral - once the favourite place of the only canonised imperial couple, Henry II and Cunegonde - offers an indescribable ambience for a church or civil wedding ceremony with its St Michael's Chapel in the cloister, St Mary's Chapel in the chapter house and its adjoining idyllic terrace garden for this momentous step.

A small champagne reception after saying yes, special memories captured in a photo and a guided tour for the entire wedding party make this special day an unforgettable experience.
