Hotel of the week: Schloss Elmau in Elmau, Germany

This 1916 château is now a “cultural hideaway” and luxury spa.

Once a “monastically austere” resort for the German elite, this 1916 château now has a “fresh, cosmopolitan” air, said E. Jane Dickson in the British Condé Nast Traveller. Today run by the grandson of its founder, it bills itself as a “cultural hideaway” and luxury spa that promotes personal enrichment. “Calisthenics on the lawn have given way to courses in tango, tai chi, and yoga,” and the concert program now includes world music. One holdover: The three-story “wellness” complex is still an “adult-only zone.” In Germany, that means clothes are optional.
