We have had a special connection to Baden-Baden for a long time. Not only did we grow up nearby, we even met in the area. Even back then, we particularly looked forward to spring in Baden-Baden every year, because hardly any other city in Germany blooms so elegantly and colorfully. For us, Baden-Baden is simply a small piece of home and memory. So there was no question for us that we wanted to get married here. Unfortunately, we didn't find the right location at the time.

However, since we have been intensively dealing with wedding locations on the blog, we have become aware of a hotel that would have fulfilled all requirements: This Homage Hotel Maison Messmer in Baden-Baden. So if you are currently planning your wedding, then you should definitely have this wedding location on your radar.

Maison Messmer through the ages

The Maison Messmer country house was built in 1833 by the Baden War Minister Secretary Johann Baptist Messmer on a hill next to the later spa house and casino. Among the guests of the house were nobles, diplomats and poets. Within a few years, Maison Messmer developed into a popular residence for German and European politicians during the summer months.

In the year of the revolution, Prince Wilhelm came to Baden-Baden and chose accommodation with, of all people, the staunch democrat Johann Baptist Messmer. But his stay took an unexpected turn. The hospitality of his political opponent quickly transformed the initial distrust into a deep friendship. When he said goodbye, Prince Wilhelm said: “I came to you as an enemy, next time I will return as a friend.” He kept his promise, and the Maison Messmer was the summer residence of the German imperial couple for over 40 years. High-ranking guests from Prussia were often guests at the Maison Messmer, which meant that many conferences were held here rather than in the castle. The emperor's annual visit made the Maison Messmer famous far beyond its borders.

Today, the Maison Messmer remains a luxury hotel, a place of hospitality and encounters. With its exquisite rooms and exclusive suites, the elegant restaurant JB Messmer, a fantastic wellness area and first-class event rooms, the hotel offers everything you need for an unforgettable stay - and above all for a dream wedding.
