There’s only one thing that beats the scenic drive through the German countryside to reach Schloss Elmau Luxury Spa and Cultural Hideaway: the spa itself. Named the top “International Destination Spa” in “Travel + Leisure’s” World’s Best Awards this year, this wellness retreat does not disappoint.
Uniquely, Schloss is actually comprised of six separate spas — three for families and three exclusive to adults, including one for women only. For adults traveling sans kids, The Badehause Spa — featuring 16 treatment rooms, two infinity pools, a yoga center and an infinity rooftop pool — is a standout. For families, The Nature Spa, with its three clay tennis courts, boccia ball court and kids’ playground area, beckons.
Stunning views of snow-capped Wetterstein Mountain and tranquil Ferchenback Creek are visible throughout the expansive property.
