Schloss Elmau: A wellness resort in the Bavarian Alps

Schloss Elmau is at once a spa retreat, a cultural haven and a haven of peace. A place to open your eyes, to feast on exceptional food, but above all to relax and breathe deeply.

Just 100 km south of Munich and 1000 m above sea level lies Schloss Elmau, a resort nestled deep in the Bavarian Alps. A true sanctuary of tranquillity, framed by spectacular peaks, forests and streams… Immerse yourself in this postcard!

Comprising two luxury hotels, Schloss Elmau is a large-scale resort. The Luxury Spa and Cultural Hideaway Hotel has two room types: single (25 m²) and double (55 m²); while the Luxury Suites and Spa Retreat is divided into Junior Suites (80 m²) and Suites (200 m²). There are 123 rooms and suites in all, featuring contemporary European furnishings and top-of-the-range amenities. Stunning views from every room enhance the resort’s picturesque charm.

Everything, everything, everything for wellness

Within this award-winning spa, you’ll also find large relaxation rooms with open fireplaces and picture windows offering breathtaking views. Sweating in a sauna has never been so pleasant!

The resort organizes frequent yoga retreats. The latest program can be found on the hotel’s website. It also has a Pilates studio. As well as being full of hiking ideas, Schloss Elmau is located close to a number of Germany’s most beautiful castles, so if you’re feeling fit, grab a bike (provided by the hotel) and take a ride through the beautiful countryside!

The Luce d’Oro restaurant has even been awarded a Michelin star. For those looking for more detox cuisine, head for the spa’s restaurant, “Ananda”.
