A Luxury Spa Retreat and Cultural Hideaway tucked in the Alps

Sixty-two miles (100 km) south of Munich is Schloss Elmau, tucked deep in the calm of the Bavarian Alps. It's a sanctuary framed by dramatic peaks and streams; a spa retreat, family escape and romantic haven; a place to breathe deep and discover. Three adult spas offer outstanding treatments — and the largest hammam this side of Istanbul. Recharge in the empowering Alps as your children go free-range in three family spas, the kids' club or edutainment workshops. The variety of restaurants cover everything from high-end Thai cuisine to fondue feasts. Browse the bookshop and library, or enjoy a world-class recital in the concert hall. Enjoy restful sleep, serene tranquility & stunning views of peaks and valleys connecting ultimate comfort to the beauty of the surroundings. 

The hub of Schloss Elmau's spa and wellness programs is the adults-only Badehaus Spa, a sprawling, four-story spa wonderland that houses a rooftop pool, saltwater ground-level pool, and dozens of natural light-filled treatment rooms. Beyond the Badehaus, there are additional spa facilities to enjoy, including a hamamfamily spa area, saunas and steam rooms, a traditional Chinese medicine "Turtle Spa," and more. You could easily spend several entire days simply basking in spa relaxation.

That said, there is more to explore and experience beyond the spa, like:

  • Free yoga, pilates, and tai chai classes

  • Frequent yoga retreats with some of the world's best teachers

  • Free outdoor activities that take advantage of the incredible German Alps landscape

  • Luxurious, cozy-yet-modern rooms featuring warm natural colors, loads of natural light, and amazing mountain views

  • Seven on-property restaurants, from the Michelin-starred Luce de'Oro to Thai food to spa cuisine (oh and did we mention, breakfast & dinner are included your room rate!)

  • Clay tennis courts

  • Bocce ball courts

  • Free, year-round cultural programming, from classical music concerts to thought-provoking lectures

The resort has a unique philosophy toward wellness--they believe a true wellness holiday should integrate not only rest, relaxation, and physical rejuvenation, but also mental detox and a release of emotional tension. Schloss Elmau's recipe for mental detox focuses heavily on books and reading, with three gorgeous libraries on the property, and a large bookstore that often hosts talks by great authors. Spa-loving bookworms will find a personal paradise here!
