Stayed in large private apartment and have been pleasantly suprised by a lovely town. A near end of season holiday , very rainy weather but it turned out the skiing was actually very good despite the rain. The supermarket was closed on Sunday unfortunately, but nice restaurants and good free ski bus to gondola made it a good few days.

A friendly location with good slopes and plenty of access to other areas via lifts. The only problem was the weather. We would suggest going in February.

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 quality food they preferred it when we ate out on the evenings last year when... 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 chose Ellmau because its where me and my chikldren learned to ski. We returned so our grandchildren could enjoy the ski school. We all had a great week our grandchildren had a great teacher in Celine who brought them on well and they are already looking forward to next year. I though the skiing may be limited for the...

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 Ellmau so much, that from this winter we have been spending both our December and... 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 day.

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 would take years of holidaying there to see them all. I thought the prices in... More

What better than the whole area home run challenge? You will NOT (I have never in 45 years) find a better ski area, ever! A whole day blast from Ellmau to Brixen home run, up to Westendorf and their home run to the village, back up to the top again and another home run back to Brixen. Gondola up to... 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 not expensive as the french. Book tours as soon as possible as we missed out... More
