Schloss Elmau

Schloss Elmau, built by the philosopher and theologian Johannes Müller between 1914 and 1916[1], is a four-story national monument with hipped roof, tower and porch, situated between Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Mittenwald in a sanctuary of the Bavarian Alps, Germany. It lies at the foot of the Wetterstein mountains in a Naturschutzgebiet (nature reserve), belonging to the Krün municipality.

History

In the early hours of 7 August 2005 a fire broke out in the Schloss, caused by a faulty electric blanket belonging to the former manager, Ducci Mesirca. The fire destroyed nearly the entire top floor of the main building, although there were no serious casualties. The hotel has since been rebuilt.

The five-star hotel today offers 123 rooms and suites, as well as a concert hall and several restaurants. The Schloss Elmau Retreat features 47 suites. The hotel is a forum for renowned international conferences and meetings.[2] It is a member hotel of The Leading Hotels of the World.

G7 Summit

Schloss Elmau was the site of the 41st G7 summit on June 7–8, 2015,[3] which the German government announced on January 23, 2014.[4]
