The first mention of Middachten appears in the year 1190, and although the castle dates from the early Middle Ages, the house in its present form was built towards the end of the 17th century and still includes some medieval parts. Middachten is unique in that it is still a real, working estate. Besides the castle, park and gardens, the estate also includes farms, woods and agricultural land.
Middachten has never been sold but has always passed from one generation to another. As a result of this, the interior of the castle is complete and still has many of the original household effects, including a large collection of portraits and much 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th century furniture. The castle also has the original cupboards filled with collections of china, silver and glass-wear, and antique linen. The management of the estate is in the hands of the 25th Lord of Middachten, Count zu Ortenburg.
Your wedding at Middachten Castle would be an unforgettable experience for you and your guests. You would be welcomed at the castle steps from where you would be led through the vestibule with its beautiful staircase to the great hall. Here, an official from the Rheden Borough Council would conduct the civil wedding ceremony. The gardens around the castle form a wonderful location for your wedding photographs.
