Marry bald people

The marriage of two people is the culmination of a mutual relationship.

On October 1st, 2017, the “Law introducing the right to marry for persons of the same sex” came into force. Since then, two men or two women can marry.


Before getting married, the "registration of the marriage" must be made. It has to be done at the registry office in whose place one of the two married couples is domiciled.

To register the marriage, the bride and groom must appear in person at the registry office. If one of the two is unable to attend, he / she can issue the partner with a power of attorney for the sole purpose of registering the marriage. You can get a form here.

The registration and thus also an appointment with the registry office Winterberg can take place at the earliest six months before the marriage date.

Since there are many formalities to be clarified in the run-up to a marriage and various questions arise, it is recommended that you first make an appointment by phone or e-mail for a clarifying discussion.


Your wedding ceremony can take place during the normal registry office opening times, during this time you can also register your marriage or make an appointment for it. Weddings are also possible on a Friday afternoon or Saturday morning by prior arrangement. You are welcome to contact us about your appointment requests.

Outside the opening times of the town hall, weddings are possible at the following times:

  • Every 1st and 3rd Friday afternoon of the month
  • Every 1st and 3rd Saturday morning of the month

Please make an appointment for your event wedding in the Astenturm on the Kahler Asten, in the Bobhaus Winterberg or in the St. Georg ski jump, as well as the wedding ceremony in the town hall (wedding room), exclusively with the Winterberg registry office.
