South Jutland is the area of Denmark that is connected by the land border to Germany. This border runs 68km's and there are hundreds of couples that live in Germany that cross into Denmark to marry every year.
This is because Denmark is well known that one of the easiest and fastest places in the world to marry for foreign, International and same sex couples is Denmark. And as Germany has stricter and wider document requirements, and much longer timeframes (can be up to 18 months to marry, longer if you are not both German Citizens), we are finding more and more German resident, citizens and visiting partners are looking to get married in Denmark as an alternative to the process in Germany.
We work with 14 Town Halls that we consider to be perfect options for couples travelling from Germany to get married in Denmark.
All of these Town Halls have good road access, bus, train, and also some of them have their own airports if you are arriving from Southern Germany.
Depending on your timeframe, whether you have witnesses or need them provided, can do same day document presentation or are able to do business day before (or longer) there are options for everyone.
The main stream Town Halls such as Tønder, Sonderborg and Aabenraa are always very full due to popularity and proximity, they are a great option if you are happy with a wedding further in advance and can be flexible with your dates. All absolutely stunning towns and locations, and we personally know the registrars there, they are very welcoming of German couples, most of the registrars speaking fluent German and having strong personal connections to Germany, they are very much in tune with the culture. Click on the individual venue names for expanded information on each venue.
The other 11 Town halls all have something to offer that is unique and different, whilst still remaining charmingly Danish and majestic but managing to be also welcoming and warm.
