Schloss Elmau

Elmau, Germany


"My first time yodeling, and in Bavaria!"

Wellness Ecotourism Hideaway

Schloss Elmau is really unlike any other place in the world. At the same time a storybook castle, world-class wellness retreat, and major cultural center hosting events from jazz and cultural concerts to renowned literary figures, it is hard to fit this place into a conventional box. If you’re active, there are miles of hiking and biking trails around the property. If you’re a gourmand, they have 8 restaurants ranging in international cuisines (the Thai restaurant is especially popular). If you’re looking to relax, there are three separate spas for adults and three more spas for families. It’s no wonder a hotel of this caliber played host to the G7 Summit in 2015.

Discover the beauty of the Bavarian Alps, with its crystal-clear lakes, lofty peaks, rushing streams, famous museums, churches, authentic villages and fairytale castles. A stay at Schloss Elmau reveals what was once King Ludwig II’s favorite retreat nestled 1800 metres above sea-level in the Wetterstein Mountains.

The hotel has three sections. The Hideaway is the original section of the hotel in the castle proper with more traditional rooms that were redone in 2005, the Wetterstein Wing built in 2003 that has larger accommodations well-suited to families, and the newest Retreat opened in 2015 which is all Junior Suites and Suites and my favorite section of the property.

Pool + Gym

Fitness junkies and guppies welcome. Pick from any number of the six swimming pools — five outdoors and four heated — on property. There are also two gyms, the Hideaway Gym and Retreat Gym, if you want to get in an indoor workout. To keep the kiddos busy, there are even special dates dedicated to activity camps.

Not only do they have a plethora of spas, the types of treatments are numerous as well. They have one of the largest hammams in the Western Hemisphere, treatments with Traditional Chinese Medicine, and even a spa just for ladies. There is also a family spa, dedicated to ensuring even the kids can experience some pampering.

There are no shortage of places to dine while on property at Schloss Elmau. Choose from one of eight restaurants including Michelin-starred gourmet, Mediterranean, fondue, vegan, live cooking, Thai and pizza. The Thai spot, Fidelio, is named after the travel technology tool that the resort owner founded. It’s definitely a favorite.

This property is made for families! Aside from the kid-friendly amenities, there is even a kindergarden that runs from 9am to 9pm for children ages 1 to 5-years old.

Schloss Elmau is located 100 km south of Munich and 40km north of Innsbruck.

Agent's Tips

Be sure to hike up to their mountain restaurant, Elmauer Alm, for a refreshing beer and traditional Bavarian fare with amazing views.

For something a little farther away, there is also an extraordinary hunting lodge nearby called Schachen, a small castle built by Ludwig II of Bavaria with the most surprising of interiors. This is about three to four hour hike from the hotel.
