The elegant, life-affirming city on the Rhine stands for fashion, shopping, culture and extraordinary events. From Königsallee – fondly known as the “Kö”, one of Europe’s most luxurious shopping streets – it’s just a short walk to the historical and charming Altstadt (Old Town) with its 260 bars and restaurants. Its flair is world-famous, its narrow streets are vibrant, and the multifaceted cultural scene produces spectacular events and exhibitions. This is Düsseldorf, the state capital of Northrhine-Westphalia - Germany, which holds many highlights for all visitors, including honeymooners and those looking for a distinctive wedding destination.
Located right on the shopping and entertainment strip of the Königsallee, the 5-star Steigenberger Parkhotel Düsseldorf offers a great destination for weddings and accommodation. The grand and elegant ambiance of the ballrooms and the hotel's facilities will make your big day unforgettable. To shed more light on the unique features of the Steigenberger Parkhotel we asked Ms. Romina Seppe, Event Sales Manager | Wedding Planner a few questions about the wedding venues in the hotel and her role as Wedding Planner.
1. Could you kindly describe the wedding venues that you have at the hotel and the capacities of each?
We have the capacity for weddings from 10 to 160 guests. Whether you are planning an intimate wedding or a big celebration, you can rely on our team.
Every single wedding is planned with attention to the smallest detail.
For the intimate weddings with your loved ones and closest friends we suggest our Opernsalon or the Salon Dumont-Lindemann which is suitable for 10-25 guests. Both rooms are flooded with daylight and are equipped with comfortable interior. Of course, you can choose from various seating arrangements.
If you wish to celebrate with 30 to 60 wedding guests, then our Salon Peter von Cornelius is exactly right for you. The square shape of the room makes it perfect for having a seating arrangement with round tables and a small dance floor. What makes this room very elegant is the huge chandelier and the mirrored windows which also give a kind of vintage impression.
Now we come to the celebrations with 60 to 120 guests in our Heinrich Heine Saal. With the folding doors and the classic elegant design, it is a beautiful ballroom in the City Center of Düsseldorf. The Salon Karl Immermann is connected to the Heinrich Heine Saal through folding doors. This enables you to offer a cocktail reception in one part of the room before the party starts.
But we can also use both rooms for a seated dinner. This would allow you to have a seating arrangement for up to 160 guests. Then you have the possibility to use the Salon Peter von Cornelius for the celebration afterwards.
As you can see, there are lots of possibilities to hold a beautiful and glamorous wedding at the Steigenberger Parkhotel in the heart of Düsseldorf. And together we always find the right possibility for each wedding couple.

2. What distinguishes Steigenberger Parkhotel as a wedding venue in Düsseldorf?
The 5-star Steigenberger Parkhotel is located in the center of the city. We are at the beginning of the Königsallee (the main shopping boulevard in Düsseldorf) and are also located directly at the entrance of the wonderful park "Hofgarten". We have very good public transportation connections and we are located centrally but still sited in a green environment. In addition, we provide a service which makes you feel completely comfortable.
3. What services do you provide brides and grooms-to-be getting married at your hotel?
From the beginning I, as the Wedding Planner of the hotel, take care of every single bride. Whether you ask for assistance in organising a DJ or a hairdresser, a make-up artist, a photographer, videographer, singer or a musical band, we are delighted to share our connections in any matter.
Of course, we offer accommodation in our comfortable and spacious rooms and suites of our hotel.
4. What advice do you have for any couple regarding selecting and working with a destination wedding venue?
Weddings are the celebration of love. And this is how you should choose your location. Listen to your heart. If you feel comfortable and your gut feeling entirely says yes, then you should also say yes.
If you are thinking about celebrating your wedding abroad, it is also important to check if the location is also interesting for your wedding guests before and after the party.
Is there enough entertainment? Does the location offer enough accommodation? How are the flight connections? If all this fits together: Congratulations - you have just found the perfect location for your wedding.
