Get married in the Eifel – This is the day you can look forward to!

The best day of your life in the historic water mill

The marriage proposal is hardly pronounced and already you think about it together: Where do I spend this unique day? Erwin v. d. Mühle offers in his historical ambience together with his team the ideal solution with an all-round package from A like arrival to Z like togetherness in the wedding suite.

The geographical location of Birgel offers quick access to all couples from the surrounding area. And if you come from Hamburg, Berlin, Munich or Basel, you just meet in the middle.

The wedding feast with civil ceremony or free wedding takes place, with all that belongs to it, on a large area of the mill. Erwin v. d. Mühle simply takes care of everything so that there is a relaxed and smooth process right from the start. 2 to 3 joint talks incl. a great rehearsal dinner are enough to satisfy all of this.

Hotel, registry office and celebration location – all on one site.

As a bride and groom, you arrive the day before, park your car in front of the bridal suite and perhaps already receive one or two guests who have set off earlier because of the long journey. With a good meal and delicious drinks you spend the evening before together in the inn “Zum Sägewerk” or in another room of the historical water mill. The next morning, the bride now has plenty of time to “polish up” for the wedding ceremony.

Hairstyle, cosmetics and much more is done in peace.

Then in the early afternoon the wedding date is announced. The wedding ceremony is held in our own registry office room and lasts between 30 and 45 minutes, depending on the music or speeches. Now toast with a glass of sparkling wine or freshly tapped beer (so loose and casual), before there is also quickly for all guests the wedding cake, but also accompanied by hearty millstone breads. To shorten the always long time to dinner, Erwin v. d. Mühle now offers an exciting and interesting mill tour, which lasts about an hour and shows all the collected and fully functional mills in operation.

The evening then begins with a selected 4-course menu.

Afterwards, people celebrate and dance with a live band, a DJ or their own laptop until the bride and groom have reached the weight of their bed and have come to the decision: “It was a super great party”. Only when I have heard this sentence, I too will close the doors in satisfaction and allow the bride and groom with their guests a few more beautiful hours of sleep. Now it’s time to have breakfast together, talk about the evening and then, without even having packed the car, start the journey home again.

There are around 40 beds at the Birgeler Mühle. In case of greater demand we still have about 160 beds available in the neighboring town. There, of course, there is then a shuttle service, for example, with a wedding bus or a vintage car for the bride and groom, so that even in this version all cars can stop. We offer the all-round package for all party sizes up to 200 people.

Now comes the exciting and always expected question at the end: “What does it cost”?

I then answer this question in the first conversation, after the decision has been made, “Yes, we can imagine getting married here.”

So off to Birgel, to see the registry office and the banqueting hall, and to have the decisive first conversation with Erwin v. d. Mühle. Erwin v. d. Mühle and his team are looking forward to this.
