One of the best hotels worldwide
Schloss Elmau is, in my opinion, as one of the best hotels in the world and offers its guests a variety of meeting and relaxation facilities.
I have the hotel last end 2014, well a half year before the G7 summit, and gave me a picture of the last preparations. So I was, of course, curious about what has changed since the summit.
Stay overnight like Angela Merkel at the G7 summit
No wonder, because the hotel offers a lot: In addition to the excellent service and the friendliness of the staff, I was particularly impressed by the new retreat: the 47 generously equipped suites & junior suites (55-210qm), where the heads of state at the G7 summit stayed overnight, offer a wonderful view of the Wetterstein Mountains and the castle park, which is still empty and relaxing at busy hotels due to its spaciousness.
Overall, the hotel has 150 rooms of different sizes and price classes, starting at approximately 20 square meters. Most of them are located next to the retreat on six floors in the south wing of the building. The 2015 retreat was opened in the course of the G7 summit after two years of construction, but was already planned.
6 times Pure cuisine
The hotel's six restaurants, which are not all open at the same time, have different offers: the biggest one is La Salle with its extensive buffet for breakfast and dinner, next door is the excellent fondue restaurant "Kaminstüberl"
Very good is also the Italian restaurant Luce d'Oro in the retreat, the Ananda in the bathhouse offers a slightly reduced range of vegan food and is best recommended for breakfast. Finally, the Thai restaurant Fidelio has been awarded 15 points in the Gault Millau 2017.
Cultural and social center
Elmau is not just a wellness hotel but a luxury spa & cultural hideaway. It has a long tradition: originally built during the first world war in the style of the reform architecture, it has been a place of recreation in the coming decades as a mixture of monastery, country school, youth hostel and sanatorium.
In the year 1916 more than one hundred concerts were organized every year, from piano and song and chamber music events to occasional orchestral concerts and oratorios, Loriot, Rolf Boysen, Johannes Rau and Hilde Domin, but the hotel also has a national socialist The past, with which it is active today.
Schlossherr Dietmar Müller-Elmau took over the Hotel 1997 and created today's wellness-oriented concept: among other things, the former "Ferien vom Ich" became a "holiday for me". A major fire destroyed 2005 two-thirds of all rooms and enabled Müller-Elmau to rebuild on their own terms, including larger and more luxurious rooms.
Meetings & Meetings
Today, more than two hundred musical events are held annually in Schloss Elmau. In addition to classical music, Jazzmusik has also secured a firm position in recent years, as well as literary events and symposia.
There are also various rooms available for exclusive meetings, meetings and events of varying sizes: on the one hand, the original castle, which offers rooms for 10 to 210 persons, while the retreat offers space for meetings for up to 90 persons. It turns out that even today the resort is included Company and politicians very popular, so met here on my arrival just a delegation from China.
At the heart of the hotel is the 5000 qm large luxurious spa in the bathhouse, plus 2000 qm in the retreat: In addition to saunas & hamam you can enjoy the view of the Wettersteingebirge here in 25 or 20 m long, warm infinity pools & salt pools in one of the excellent treatments or massages.
The large, park-like garden with tennis courts and all kinds of play equipment for children, such as trampolines and a yogapavilion, is also pleasant. Elmau Castle is also a family hotel. Nevertheless, you'll never be over-crowded, even on a busy day, on the contrary, you can relax on comfortable loungers directly at the brook.
An all-round great hotel in the lower price categories with correspondingly small rooms also for the slightly narrower budget is affordable - with the same service, in the context of the half board and the food in the restaurants heard.
