The G7 is being held in the southern Bavarian Hotel of Schloss Elmau. This is located 60 miles south of Munich and just up from Innsbruck Austria. Nestled into the Bavarian Alps, Schloss Elmau offers a unique spa and cultural experience in a nature sanctuary. The castle is also a perfect base for year-round sports and to discover all of the fairy tale castles of King Ludwig II, his favorite being only a three-hour hike away. The hotel celebrates the luxury of space and privacy in five restaurants, several lounges and four separate spas for adults and families as well as regular classical music and jazz concerts with some of the greatest artists of our time. Grand yet intimate interiors of the 94-year-old castle, which was rebuilt in 2007, blend subtle Oriental influences with the beauty of the pristine surroundings.
