We have enjoyed hiking in scenic Tirolean resort of Ellmau in Austria several summers and are more than happy to be returning this summer.

Coincidently we discovered  that the Hochfilzer Hotel in the centre of Ellmau organise romantic weddings and special celebrations and what scenery on their doosteps!  This is a lovely hotel with good facilities

Now you needn’t think the bride and the rest of the party will have to don hiking boots to get to those scenic spots for fabulous photography as many vistas are easily acessible with the efficient mountain transport system – the Hartkaiserbahn will wisk you to the top of the Hartkaiser range for tremendous views over the majestic Wilder Kaiser mountains.  The panoramawegs  allow easy acess to the view points. The onion domed churches with their ornate interiors provide a marvellous setting for a ceremony.
The friendly Hochfilzer can make all the necessary wedding arrangements regarding catering, flowers, photography as well as rooms for the wedding party, as can be seen on their website so have a look! Contact Ingrid via their website for all the details. Ellmau is our most favourite austrian resort, it has a real village feel to it and makes an idyllic setting for an alpine wedding. If you want to know more about the Ellmau area and location of the chapels and scenic spots for photography in the neighbouring villahges of Sol, Scheffau with the beutiful lake Hintersteinersee then feel free to ask.  We can heartily reccomend Ellmau for idyllic alpine weddings..and than a hiking honeymoon with a marvellous stay at the Hochfilzer Hotel.

Reminding ourselves of these views again we can’t wait to be back in Ellmau this summer, and if we see a wedding in the mountains then it will be extra special.
