Since 2003, the Marzahn-Hellersdorf registry office has set up a branch office in the stone boat of the Chinese Garden. Since 2013, it has also been possible to get married from November to March in the "Hall of Receptions" in the Oriental Garden.

The registration and appointment for a wedding ceremony takes place directly at the district office Marzahn-Hellersdorf of Berlin - registry office: Tel.: 030 90 293 - 21 86 / - 21 75 / - 21 70

Hours: Monday and Tuesday from 8.00 - 12.00 and Thursday from 14.00 - 18.00

Weddings in a stone boat

The Chinese Garden in the Gärten der Welt fascinates above all by the authenticity of its buildings, such as the so-called "stone boat", a building that protrudes into the lake like a ship turned into stone. The model for the "stone boat" called "View of the Moon" is the marble ship Shi Fang, which can be admired in the Summer Palace of Beijing.

Couples who want to say "I do" to each other will find a unique environment for the "most beautiful day of their lives" in the Chinese ambience with its symbolism related to unity, happiness and harmony. The stone boat can accommodate up to 30 people in the summer season.

Weddings in the Hall of Receptions

The spacious, quiet-looking "Hall of Receptions" of the Oriental Garden smells pleasantly of cedar wood, light falls through the central glass dome and allows a diverse play of light and shadow through the decorated columns and arches.

During the winter months, couples who want to say "I do" can celebrate their "most beautiful day of their lives" in this beautiful ambience. The "Hall of Receptions" can accommodate up to 50 people in the winter season.
