Schloss Elmau resides in a magical alpine valley of breathtaking beauty, at the foot of an impressive mountain range, 100 km south of Munich near Garmisch-Partenkirchen in Germany. The castle, which is a national monument, was built in 1916 by the philosopher Dr. Johannes Müller with the support of Elsa Countess Waldersee and his brother in law, the renowned architect Prof. Carlo Sattler. The aim was to create a retreat for his friends and artists who wanted to enjoy the serenity and beauty of nature, classical music, dance and an undogmatic and open minded dialogue on philosophical questions of the time.
Schloss Elmau´s secluded location and cultural ambience provide a stimulating environment for meeting people, conversation, debate and decision making. The deluxe conference center, equipped with the latest media technology, and several breakout and meeting rooms make Schloss Elmau also a prime venue for conferences, meetings and seminars in the world of science, culture and business for groups of up to 250 persons.
