Situated between Augsburg and Ulm, Duttenstein Castle is a place with a colourful past. Built by the Fuggers in the 16th century, it was used by the Princes of Thurn and Taxis as a private retreat and hunting lodge with its own game park for a long time.

It's not just the special ambience that attracts attention, the service at Duttenstein Castle also leaves nothing to be desired. “Our exclusive catering partner Widmann’s Löwen spoils our guests’ taste buds. Frank Widmann himself offers cooking classes, followed by a trip to our wine cellar. On request, we can also take care of the entire organisation such as decoration, event technology, or the planning of the supporting program,” adds Pancherz.

Set in 500 hectares of historic woodland, Duttenstein Castle is the perfect setting for outstanding events. Its magical ambience and special location make it a venue with a unique charm. The fallow deer and the mouflons that roam freely in the park greet guests as they approach the gently curving avenue, setting the mood for an exceptional event. “The castle’s atmosphere is truly unique,” states event manager Diana Pancherz. “Its seclusion in the middle of a spacious park makes it absolutely memorable.” The heart of the castle is the covered courtyard with its three-story Renaissance gallery leading to the guest rooms. “The valuable 44

frescoes in the princes’ rooms, which you can use as conference or living room are another highlight,” adds Ms. Pancherz. Exclusivity is always guaranteed, as the entire castle is booked as a whole for events. Guest rooms (nine or 18 depending on the event) are available on request. The proximity to nature inspires a nature-based supporting program. “That’s right,” confirms the manager. “Forest Olympics are one possibility for the active guests, while brunch in the forest is another beautiful option for a more serene morning. We are happy to provide picnic baskets with delicious snacks for excursions to the most magnificent spots in the forest or the nearby lake. As a retreat, the hilly landscape offers a wonderful chance to gather strength and energy for new ideas. The adjacent forest also offers excellent hunting opportunities, including still or hide hunts, which can be booked exclusively or as part of an event’s supporting program. There is also a


riding stable and a golf course nearby, both of which look forward to welcoming our guests.”


Duttenstein Castle embodies the splendour of past eras, skillfully combining modern design and historic charm. It is the perfect choice for exclusive events of all kinds.
