Ellmau is a lively winter resort located at the foot of the Wilder Kaiser. There are plenty of excellent pistes as well as fine après ski options in the many bars in Ellmau.

You can also test your ice skating skills in Elmau´s ice rink, hike on some of the 50 kilometers of hiking trails, experience the thrill of racing down an flood-lit sleighing track at night or venture into the snow tubing arena. There are also plenty of very good restaurants in Ellmau as well. There is a beautiful restaurant at the top of the Hartkaiserbahn where you can enjoy a meal and the stupendous panoramic views over the vast Wilder Kaiser region.
