As the special day approaches, we want to make sure everyone is able to celebrate with us carefree and safely! So we ask everyone in attendance to take extra precautions regarding corona during the 2-3 weeks leading up to the wedding. Put on your FFP2 mask when you travel on plains and trains, and please get tested on both wedding days – don’t worry about it being a hassle; free rapid corona tests are available so that our wedding celebration is as safe & relaxed as can be.

Friday, July 21st – Traditional Bavarian Evening
Venue: Liebighof im Lehel
Liebigstraße 14, 80538 München, Germany
We have booked this traditional Bavarian Restaurant for the evening.
📸 Please note, that our wedding photographer Verena “Vreni “ will be there and you can ask her to take some nice and fun couples, friends or family pictures. After the wedding we will send you a link to ALL of the photos, so feel free to ask her to photograph any moment.
Starts at 18 o’clock (6pm)
The evening starts at 18 o’clock / 6pm! Round up your lederhosen and dirndls, it’s time for a Bavarian get-together! Join us on Friday at 6pm in the heart of Munich at the Restaurant Liebighof to experience German culture firsthand. You can enjoy delicious Bavarian specialities – such as ham, sausages, breads & more local snacks – along with drinks as you get to know everyone in an relaxed atmosphere. Come prepared for musical Oktoberfest classics featuring traditional music from our host city.
We have booked the restaurant just for us. Google maps is excellent for navigating with public and private transportation in Munich. We recommend you to use the Uber-App to book a taxi ride, as it is often less expensive and more reliable than a normal taxi.
Ends at 23 o’clock (11pm)
The get-together on Friday evening won’t be an all-nighter for us, so we have planned on going home at 11 pm at the latest – as you may know, we have an important appointment the next day. However, if you are planning to party for two nights straight, there are plenty of clubs and bars nearby.
For your drive home, you can easily use the public transportation in Munich or an Uber-car.
Dress code on Friday
For the perfect wedding experience, don’t feel any pressure to dress up or buy any special clothes – the most important thing for us is to have a great time together! But if you’re feeling extra fancy for our Bavarian costume evening, we’ve got everything you need to make it an unforgettable experience. Check out all of the details below.
On Friday evening you can wear either Bavarian “Tracht” (traditional bavarian clothing, such as lederhosen or a dirndl-dress) or normal trousers / jeans with a shirt or a summer dress. Don’t feel any pressure to buy anything new!
However, if you want to buy a traditionall bavarian outfit, we are more than happy to accompany you to a store. There are stores for every price range, just as an example we listed the following 3 stores:
Trachten Angermaier (Women’s outfits start at 80€, men’s lederhosen trousers at 160€, but there are some nice shirts as well, if you want to combine one with some jeans 😊 )
Trachten Outlet (Outfits starting from 200€)
Lodenfrey (Outfits starting from 500+€)
Renting and outfit (we don’t know the place):
The most important thing is to avoid any tourist trap shops with horrible clothes please ask us for help! Or just come in a relaxed summer outfit.
Saturday, July 22nd – The Wedding Day
Please note that there has been a last-minute change of venue for this day!!
In the final days before our wedding we were forced to change the venue. However, we have secured two beautiful new venues for the ceremony/ reception and the location for the wedding celebration. Rest assured, we have arranged transportation for all our guests to ensure a seamless transition to both locations.
If you’re planning to stay overnight at our new wedding venue in Aschheim near Munich, you can take advantage of our special wedding room rate by booking a hotel room there. Need to head back to Munich after the party? A quick 20-25 minute taxi or Uber ride will cost around €60-80 (or €15-20 per person). However, the festivities will hopefully last all night, so consider catching public transportation in the early hours of the day for a cheaper option (around a 1-hour journey).
ps. If you stay the night from Saturday to Sunday in the hotel in Aschheim by Munich, you can leave all your luggage in the bus until we arrive in Aschheim later in the day.
If you have any questions throughout the day, please feel free to ask the best man team (languages: English and German), consisting of Niko (+4915112777247) and Vernon (+4915112777247), who can be identified by the purple flower corsage on their suit jackets. Alternatively, you can approach the lovely maid of honour team (languages: English, Finnish and German), consisting of Linda (+4917684450391) and Olga (+4915257426895), who will be wearing a purple flower corsage on their wrists. Also our good friend Azu from Peru (+49 1605216342) will be there to help, if you want to ask something in spanish. Don’t hesitate to reach out for assistance in as needed!

Dress code for Saturday
Our wish: (Semi-)Formal or festive.
Overall we wish for a (Semi-)Formal or festive dress code. For example it would be lovely if men could could wear a suit with a white or blue shirt and women a dress, jumpsuit or formal suit.
As we are frequently asked, what we wish for, we decided to put this section on the webpage as well. In case you wish to make a present, rather than traditional wedding gifts, we kindly ask for monetary contributions, as we have been living together since 2015 and do not need any more household appliances. We are truly grateful for your understanding and for being a part of our special day.
If his wish you can directly transfer the money, or give your present on our wedding day in person.

Accommodation & Hotels
We recommend you to check airbnb, there are several guests who want to share a house/an appartement, so just shoot us a message to learn more about that. As Saturday will be the longer night, we recommend either booking a room at the new 2nd Venue (Hotel & Gasthof zur Post Ismaninger Str. 11, 85609 Aschheim), so you have a shorter distance to your comfortable bed in the night 😉 Alternatively, if like staying in Munich, a taxi ride will only be 20-25 minutes from the Saturday event and public transportation is available in the morning.
See the locations on the map (please enjoy Karoliina’s excellent graphic design talent 😂):
