    Map View of this hotel.

    Schloss Elmau – one resort, two hotels – is comprised of a historic castle tucked deep in the calm of the Bavarian Alps. A cultural hideaway and a spa retreat, Schloss Elmau offers an ideal combination of family fun and relaxation for parents. This grand hotel has many activities for families with kids of all ages, including a kids’ club for ages 1 to 5 and an array of “edutainment” activities for school age and up, such as Science Camp and Football (Soccer) Camp. The setting is beautiful beyond measure. Favorite amenities include the 3 Family Spas and an Equipment Rental Center providing everything families need for a day of outdoor action. Schloss Elmau is welcoming and luxurious without being overdone and the service is second to none. A variety of restaurants cover everything from gourmet tasting menus and all-day buffets to high Thai cuisine and fondue feasts. The Michelin Star is ideal for a special night out. What makes this hotel stand out is not just the attributes traditionally associated with luxury hotels in Bavaria, but a true passion for vacationing families to soak in and really experience the sanctuary that is Schloss Elmau. Framed by dramatic peaks, surrounded by whispering forests and rushing streams, this resort allows each guest to relax, breathe deep and discover.
