Tucked away between the Zugspitze Glacier and the Karwendel Mountains lies one of Europe's most luxurious, but understated hideaways - Schloss Elmau. Experience the soothing sounds of silence, rushing streams and classical music by the great artists of our time in a magical sanctuary of the Bavarian Alps just an hour south of Munich and a short drive from Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
Schloss Elmau was created in 1916 and completely rebuilt in 2007. Its history with music goes back to the early 1950's and a collaboration with the legendary Amadeus Quartet. By 1957 Schloss Elmau had become a mecca for chamber music with the Quartet inviting friends including Benjamin Britten, Peter Pears, Emile Gilles, George Malcom, Julian Bream, Yehudi Menuhin, Antal Dorati, Alfred Brendel and Wilhelm Kempff to 'stay and play'- a tradition that has continued until this day.
Many Maestro! clients were avid watchers of 'Hope@Home' which began in late March as a series of 14 daily mini-concerts broadcast live from Daniel's living room in Berlin. “We need to and must stay home at this time but we also need to share music as a source of comfort and inspiration” he said, and what started out as two weeks ended up with more than 30 performances with guests including Sir Simon Rattle, Matthias Goerne, Gwilym Simcock, Vladimir Jurowski and Robert Wilson.
Next April we have the opportunity to spend six nights in this astonishing hideaway and enjoy at least five concerts with 'Daniel Hope & Friends' making chamber music in the unique setting of the Schloss Elmau Concert Hall.
The BBC Amazing Hotels series recently saw Monica Galetti and Giles Coren at Schloss Elmau. If you didn't see it it's worth a watch to get the flavour of the place
The resort has two distinct hotels - The Hideaway (where we will stay and where the concerts take place) and The Retreat - all suite building (built in 2015) which has it's own exclusive facilities for Retreat guests only.
The Hideaway was rebuilt in 2007 and offers the luxury of space & diversity in 115 rooms & suites, a great concert hall, four separate luxury spas for adults & families, five restaurants for gourmets & cosmopolitans, of which one has been awarded with 2 Michelin Stars, three lounges, two Fashion & Lifestyle Shops and an outstanding bookstore as well as two libraries.
We have deluxe rooms for single use and deluxe Junior suites for double or twin use. An upgrade to single use of a deluxe Junior Suite is also available, costs on request.
