Schloss Elmau is the perfect winter sports destination for those seeking more than just great skiing, but also the ultimate nature, spa, yoga, well-being, casual fine dining, family and cultural experience.
Right in front of the resort, you'll find the most beautiful trails for cross-country skiing, ice skating, hiking, tobogganing, and e-mountain biking with spikes. One of the most rewarding hikes takes you up to our mountain restaurant with breathtaking panoramic views of the Alps. Another beautiful hike leads you along the rushing Ferchensee Creek to the idyllic Ferchensee Lake and the most spectacular hike takes you to and through the icy Partnachklamm Gorge.
The Ski Academy is offering group and private lessons with experienced ski instructors. Special lessons for young kids include a combination of skiing, games and animation. The Bruno Bear Ski Park is equipped with a magic carpet, rope lift, carousel, and warming hut.
Experienced skiers can embark on ski tours and daily ski safaris with guides, exploring the best slopes of the day between Seefeld in Austria (a 20-minute shuttle ride from the hotel) and Garmish-Partenkirchen in Bavaria (25 minutes away), both of which have hosted Olympic Winter Games and World Cups. The skiing season on the Zugspitz Glacier (35 minutes away) starts in early December and runs until April.
