Stayed here the last 2 years, self catering the 1st year but half board at Hotel Claudia this time around. Both experiences were very good, although our children 17 & 15 did not enjoy all the food this year. Although they appreciated it was good...More

Nice little village, that is calme enough in the evening and nights, so that you can go with families, but also enough pubs and bars, that you can enjoy with your friends. Excellent tourist attitute.

We've been coming to Ellmau every winter since February 2015. At first we were spending Christmas in the also lovely village of Niederau (some 25 minutes driving south west of Ellmau), and the February half term holiday in Ellmau. But we have come to love...More

What a lovely little village. Very compact but good access to other villages with a good network of lifts. Can be crowded early on but it soon settles down and there's plenty of space for everyone. Regular free ski buses running through the village all...More

The facilities are world class, the variety of ski run options from beginners through to the experts. Wide open ski runs all perfectly groomed, to narrow winding roads for the adventurous. The ski routes enable you to travel many kilometres to numerous restaurants/rest areas. It...More

Great resort with lots of blue runs and the usual ski bus to take you to the other gondola's . There is also a great toboggan run too that seems to last for ages. Everything is in walking distance and the bars are friendly and...More

A very pretty, self contained village with the most spectacular views. If you are on a budget, the best place to eat is at the cafe right next to the MPREIS supermarket. Half a chicken in a roll for 3.5 euro.

We visited this region for 3rd time. The end of January 2017 was the best- the weather, the snow conditions- very, very, very the best. Not crowded slopes, 5 days of 100% sun, ski in- ski out from frau Steger apartments.

Dear Chris and Clive, Ellmau is a beautiful alpine resort. My understanding is that you will be travelling during winter, so I will describe the winter setup (we've never been there in the summer - yet). Indeed in the winter... More
