Bavaria: a day visiting Schloss Elmau

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.

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.[1] It is among The Leading Hotels of the World.

Schloss Elmau will be the site of the 41st G7 summit June 7-8 2015,
