The best about Wernberg Castle is that we are as much committed to make your wedding day the perfect day as you are.

Examples of enjoyable and well-received supporting entertainment include:

Traditional Crossbow Shooting

Arrange for a traditional crossbow competition in the inner courtyard. The Wernberg Archery & Rifle Association is very happy to introduce you to crossbow shooting, explain the techniques involved and act as competition judges. Goes without saying that the top marksman/markswoman will be duly celebrated at the end of the competition.

Guided Torch Tour

To appropriately mark the end of an extraordinary evening, we recommend joining Martin, the Castle Sentry, on one of his rounds. Martin meets you on-site and gives you a guided tour of the castle, whilst entertaining you with tales from the castle’s long and gripping history. Before you set off, Martin provides you with an humorously delivered insight into various topics related to castle security – including those from half a millennium ago.

Wine Testing

Take a gustatory journey through Franconia’s vineyards: Join expert sommelier Frank Hildebrand in the recently refurbished cellars and sample some of Franconia’s outstanding wines. Served with a selection of savoury snacks from the castle kitchen.

Actors & Performers

Clad in historical costumes, our actors and performers revive the splendour of mid 16th century court life. Experience the court etiquette of times long past, the romantic poetry written and dedicated to each other by lovers, the seductive art of using a fan, or join a 17th century dance master for a lesson in menuetting. Our performers mingle with your guests, making conversation and are always happy to have their picture taken. They direct the happening with skill and charm, also passing on information if you like them to. Your guests may either choose to partake actively, or simply enjoy the spectacle. Our performers are real eye-catchers, adding a definite je ne sais quoi to any of your events.

Fire Performance

Fire, the most mysterious of all elements, awakening age-old deeply-rooted desires. Magic and mysticism have been fascinating human beings since the dawn of time. And fire performance is still one of the top attractions among performing arts.
Whether the subject is mystic, enchanted, medieval, futuristic or contemporary, most fire performance artists cover a wide range of different shows, surprising you with mind-blowing sets and stunning effects. Experience the mesmerizing archaic world of fire dancing, juggling, object manipulation and amazing illusions.

Choose from a variety of performance themes including:

  • Poetic
  • Mystic
  • Action-packed
  • Comedy/humour
  • Fire dancing
