Get away from it all
Nestled in the mountainous heights of the Bavarian Alps, the Schloss Elmau Luxury Spa and Cultural Hideaways may just be one of the best spa hotels in Europe. The hotel is a magical world unto itself, fully prepared to satisfy every culinary, cultural, intellectual or leisurely need. Listen to international musicians in the concert halls, relax in the Badehaus Spa, or peruse the literary selection in the libraries. At night, dine in the Michelin-starred Luce d’Oro, or sip on a glass of Riesling in the Kaminbar Jazz Lounge. For energetic guests, there is Alpine hiking in the summer, and skiing in the winter.
One of the most prestigious spas in the world, the Schloss Elmau is located in an adults-only nature sanctuary, connected by underground passage to the castle hotel. The spa features four individual spa areas - a spacious 5,000 m² of varying luxury spas, and a 15-hectare Nature Spa, open in the summer. Discover the Badehaus Spa, the Family Spa, or the Hamam, probably the largest west of Istanbul. The protected roof terrace, with the outdoor rooftop pool and a generous relaxation area with an open fireplace, is a wonderful highlight, offering breathtaking views of the unspoiled alpine surroundings and the scent of clean forest air.
