The Little Village of Ellmau

After a long school term the summer break finally arrived. I don't always plan where to go so Ellmau was neither planned nor researched. I'm so glad I ended up here in this Tyrolian Gem. We came to relax but there was so much to see and discover - the two books I had brought with me remained unread, the weather was perfect - one thing I had done before coming here was check the weather forcast - it wasn't good news. Packed for all eventualities we arrived in Austria, one of the waiters in a restaurant here said "Welcome to Africa" yes it was hot but my new motto is always take the weather with you :) too bad I couldn't bring it back home with me.

    Such a wonderful place with beauty above it all in Tyrol region. The scenes of greenery and white mountain tops are fantastic.

    Superb Ellmau page! The horse and carriage ride and the chapels certainly sound interesting to explore. The mountain including the Panorama Restuarant and the sunrise certainly look amazing! ~ho & pang

    That's a beautiful church in Ellmau --- I always love visiting churches in Europe, and sitting on a mountain meadow sounds sooooo relaxing....Norman :)

    You may wonder why I was able to give you credit for the good works on Ellmau page in a matter of around two minutes. I read each one of them and went back to each and rate them. It is easier because of the way you present the info. Always well written.

    Joan, happy new year from Germany to lovely Scotland. Fabulous page about Ellmau, which I only know from a winter one day ski trip.
