Ellmau is a municipality in the district of Kufstein in the Austrian region of Sölllandl. It lies 12 km southeast of Kufstein and 9 km west of Sankt Johann in Tirol. It is located at an elevation of 820 m above sea level. It was mentioned for the first time in the records in 1155 and is nowadays part of the Ski Welt skiing area.Ellmau is in very picturesque alpine countryside famed for its proximity to the Wilder Kaiser mountains and the steep wooded and meadowed hills to the south. The village is a very popular holiday resort both in winter and summer. In winter a variety of winter sports are possible on the local pistes and, in summer, the area is ideal for walking, mountain biking and climbing.LiftsThe adjacent hills to the south of Ellmau have several lifts and a railway ascending them. In the winter several Drag Lifts are in operation for skiers going into the lower stage of hills, in addition to smaller nursery slope lifts. The main lifts are open in both summer and winter. The Astberg is located about 1.5 km east from the village, it is a 4 person chair lift going to the top of the Astberg, where there is a cafe. About 2 km to the west of the Village is the Hartkaiser funicular cable railway which ascends the Hartkaiser taking around 7 minutes. The car has several passenger compartments and travels up and down at 30 minute intervals. At the top of the Hartkaiser is a restaurant and park with various interactive exhibits and wood carvings. About 4 km to the west at Scheffau is the Brandstadl Gondola Lift, which are 4-man cars suspended by cable. 9 km away is the Hohe Salve lift which is also a gondola lift. You can then take the lift down the other side of the Hohe Salve to Hopfgarten. Individual tickets for these lifts can be bought at the stations or weekly, fortnightly and season passes from tourist information; these cover most lifts in the Skiwelt area. There are no lifts going up the Wilder Kaiser side except for one located in Kufstein. Taxis are available up to the Wochenbrunn from which you need to walk to ascend further.
