Schloss Elmau Retreat
Bavaria, Germany
Great spa facilities • Off the beaten path • Stunning design
Boasting 5-star amenities and a wide range of wellness facilities, the Schloss Elmau Retreat is an ideal option in Bavaria. Two spas and an enchanting yoga retreat will see you to your blissful best, while a series of high-tech venues are perfect for your next corporate event. Whatever your motivation, the Schloss Elmau redefines luxury living in rural Bavaria.


Situated deep in the Bavarian Alps and surrounded by the Wettersteinwand Mountains, the Schloss Elmau Retreat may require a little effort to reach. However, its stunning hilltop setting will reward you with breathtaking views, and it’s precisely this seclusion that makes the retreat so charming.

With such natural splendour at every turn, it’s little wonder that hiking, climbing, jogging, cycling, and golf are popular pastimes among guests. In winter the location offers plenty of choices for skiing, cross-country skiing or sledding.

The hotel is located 150m west of Schloss Elmau Hideaway.

Airport Innsbruck is only 45 minutes drive and from the Munich International Airport you can transfer by road in two and a half hours.

Rooms & Suites

This section of the Schloss Elmau contains 47 suites, so you can rest assured you’ll get plenty of space. Technicolored Indian linen and smooth Thai silk feature throughout, resulting in an intimate ensemble that’s a sight to behold.

In terms of comfort, the suites are fit for a king. A cushy 200x210 cm Schramm mattress will see you sleep like a baby, and you certainly won’t be disturbed by the noiseless inductive cooling system. Other amenities are equally state-of-the-art, with integrated entertainment, high-speed Wi-Fi, and a Nespresso system being the norm in all rooms.

Spa & Wellness

Your pampering options depend on whether you’d like to bring the little ones in toe.

Patrons 14 years and over might prefer the Shantigiri Adult Spa and saltwater infinity pool. Ladies can enjoy Finnish sauna or steam bath. Meanwhile, men can take advantage of a large sauna and steam bath that connect to a cold-water plunge pool. Both genders can kick back together in the relaxation room with sweeping mountain views or warm up in front of a crackling fireplace in the tea room.

Parents can teach their children all about wellness at the Shantigiri Family Spa, which is a hit with the kids for its 25-meter open-air infinity pool. Seven treatment rooms, a Technogym fitness center, and a relaxation room complete the package.

Advanced yoga classes with certified trainer Johannes Mikenda are held in the picturesque Yoga Pavilion and cater to every level. Blissful natural surroundings and tuition from a highly qualified instructor will elevate your chakras and appease your inner wellbeing. You can choose from other popular yoga styles as well. Schloss Elmau offers yoga Retreats with great teachers.

Food & Drink

Exquisite establishments cater to every culinary taste at the Schloss Elmau Retreat. You can choose between a family restaurant Tutto Mondo or adult’s restaurant Summit (Fine Dining with Mediterranean Cuisine & Steaks for 14 years and older gourmet lovers). Both have recently received 14 Points Gault Millau.

If you prefer Mediterranean cuisine and intimate environment, you might visit Ganesha Private Dining Restaurant, which is also open to guests 14 years of age and older.

A series of stunning terraces are on offer to dine al fresco with a gorgeous view, while the cosy Library Lounge lets you feast among your favourite literary works.

Special Info

Health and wellness aside, the Schloss Elmau is famed for one thing: events. Up to 220 concerts per year with world known artists take place here!

Big or small, the hotel’s grandiose meeting facilities have got what it takes to make your function an outstanding success. Case in point: the 2015 G7 Conference in which Barack Obama and Angela Merkel played a vital role.

But it’s not just for world leaders, for Schloss Elmau has the ideal facilities to host board meetings, product launches, and family-orientated affairs like weddings. Family with children will welcome the children's programs including edutainment weeks or soccer camps.
