Dignified celebrations at the water castle

The 13th-century castle of Bottmingen is the only preserved water castle at the Leimental. During 17th and 18th century, the water castle was converted into German and then into a French Baroque style. As a result, the park was also layed out as a Baroque garden with orangeries and rearranged as an English Garden during the 19th century. Already in 1887, the restaurant and one big hall were established. Today the listed castle is a coveted, historical event location with elegant rooms and provides space for all sorts of events.

A wide selection of rooms is available for your dignified event – the in white kept “Steinsaal” (up to 42 people), which provides access to the terrace, impresses with its splendid rococo style.

It is placed on the second floor and is suitable for unforgettable festivities with music and dance.
