Bavaria: a day visiting Schloss Elmau
by Venetia Kapernekas
A beautiful day with my daughter visiting the ultimate Wellness Retreat, a sanctuary at Schloss Elmau. A magical trip to see our jivamukti yoga teacher and friend Ekaterini Lambropoulou. Spectacular views and tranquility in a mystique foggy day until the sun started warming up in the afternoon. Driving to Schloss Elmau one can have spectacular views of Wetterstein Mountain and the crystal clear Ferchenbach Creek.
a steaming pool for the foggy days,
Ana Nefeli truly enjoyed it,
the yoga practice room
afternoon departure time, the sun warmed our way back
Schloss Elmau is a luxury hotel at the foot of the Wetterstein mountains, in a nature reserve belonging to the municipality Krün, lying between Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Mittenwald in Bavaria, Germany.
The building was completed in 1916 as a place for artists, rather than as a schloss (palace), as the name implies. The five-star hotel today offers 123 rooms and suites, as well as a concert hall and several restaurants. It is a forum for renowned international conferences and meetings. It is among The Leading Hotels of the World.
Schloss Elmau will be the site of the 41st G7 summit June 7-8 2015,
