The Schloss Elmau
Festival Experience



Top-class music and literature events, condensed into thematic weeks and weekends, and always in close proximity to the protagonists in midst a magnificent setting - these are the hallmarks of the Festivals @ Schloss Elmau. From top-class chamber music during the “Week of Romanticism”, a week dedicated to Lieder under the heading “Liedwoche Christian Gerhaher,” big names in jazz at the “European Jazz Festival,” to the latest book recommendations from the book-fair critics led by Denis Scheck: far from the daily routine and the madding crowd, Schloss Elmau offers you space for new literary and musical discoveries, reflections and deep-dives during the festivals. You will find an overview of all festivals on this page; to view attractive packages and offers, please click on the link to our “Festival Packages”. We look forward to welcoming you at Schloss Elmau!
