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 has a lot to offer: 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 and junior suites (55-210sqm) in which 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 even when the hotel is busy 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 largest is La Salle with an extensive buffet for breakfast and dinner, next to it is the excellent “Kaminstüberl” fondue restaurant
The Italian restaurant Luce d'Oro in the retreat is also very good, the Ananda in the bathhouse offers a somewhat reduced range of vegan dishes and is best recommended for breakfast. Finally, the Thai restaurant Fidelio was awarded 15 points in the Gault Millau 2017.
Cultural and social center
Elmau is not just a wellness hotel but a Luxury Spa and Cultural Hideaway. It looks back on a long tradition: Originally built during the First World War in the style of reform architecture, it was used in the coming decades as a mixture of monastery, country school, youth hostel and sanatorium a place of recreation.
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.
Castle owner Dietmar Müller-Elmau took over the hotel in 1997 and created today's wellness-oriented concept: Among other things, the former “Holidays from the Me” became a “Holidays for the Me”. A major fire destroyed two thirds of all rooms in 2005 and enabled Müller-Elmau to rebuild according to their own ideas, including larger and more luxurious rooms.
Meetings and 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 sqm Luxurious Spa in the bathhouse, and once again 2000 sqm in the retreat: In addition to saunas and hammam, you can enjoy views of the Wetterstein Mountains in 25 or 20 with long, warm infinity pools and brine pools indulge in one of the excellent treatments or massages.
Pleasant is also the large, park-like garden with tennis courts and all kinds of play equipment for children, such as trampolines and a yoga pavilion. Because Schloss Elmau sees itself as a family hotel. Nevertheless, you will not feel crowded even at high capacity, on the contrary, on comfortable loungers right on the stream can relax wonderfully.
An all-round great hotel in the lower price categories with correspondingly small rooms for the slightly narrower budget is affordable - with the same service, to which the half board also the food in the restaurants belongs.
