Built in 1914, Schloss Elmau is today one of the best hotels in Germany and is represented in the renowned "Leading Hotels of the World". The 5-star superior luxury hotel consists of two resorts, the "Schloss Elmau - Luxury Spa & Cultural Hideaway" and the "Schloss Elmau Retreat - Luxury Suites & Spa" 150 metres to the west. Uniquely convenient, it enchants its visitors with fantastic alpine scenery 100 km south of Munich, 20 km southeast of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. At an altitude of 1000 metres, hotel guests can enjoy an extraordinary view of the Wetterstein mountains, nestled between the Wamberg and the Wettersteinwand. Since the end of the 1950s, the castle has been popular with numerous musicians, artists, politicians and humanists, among them Loriot. The comedian resided several times a year in the Schloss Hotel and wrote many of his sketches there. In June 2015, Schloss Elmau also made political headlines. It hosted the G7 summit with heads of state and government from the USA, France, Italy, Great Britain, Canada, Japan and Germany.
In 2005, a fire destroyed two thirds of the rooms in the listed building. Its owner, Dietmar MĂĽller-Elmau, then decided to completely rebuild and renovate the hotel. The "Schloss Elmau - Luxury Spa & Cultural Hideaway" was born. After 14 months of construction, it was opened and quickly gained a national and international reputation as one of the best wellness and holiday hotels in the world. However, as the number of rooms had to be reduced during the restoration, MĂĽller-Elmau decided to build another hotel 150 metres from the castle. In spring 2015 the "Schloss Elmau Retreat - Luxury Suites & Spa" was opened, just in time for the G7 summit, which the hotel hosted in June 2015.
The hotel not only enchants its guests with its breathtaking scenery, but also offers numerous highlights within its walls. Guests can choose between 170 different rooms and suites, relax in one of the five different spas for adults or families or cool off in one of the numerous pools or directly in the Ferchenbach. You will also be pampered in nine restaurants, including the Michelin star-winning "Luce d'Oro" and the "Fidelo" with 15 Gault Millau points. Perfect service as well as the Jivamukti Yoga Center, one of the few besides New York, London and Berlin, complete the offer and leave almost nothing to be desired. Also for Events and Meetings like the G7 summit is the luxury hotel with its two Resorts and numerous conference rooms most interesting and in the best way suitable.
