An island in the middle of countless possibilities

The beauty of the region around Erl, at the foot of the Zahmen and the Wilder Kaiser amazes people time and again. It is the soft mountain landscape of the Chiemgau and Kitzbühel Alps with the breathtaking mountain massif of the Wilder Kaiser in the background and the combination of beautiful villages in the valley, that makes this location so unique. Erl is idyllically located in front of this mountain scenery and is a true oasis with its soft green meadows, romantic waterfalls and snow-covered landscape in winter.

The Blaue Quelle Spectacle of Nature

It is a place of strength, where nature shows its most beautiful side, which is located right behind the hotel. A spectacle of nature such as the Blaue Quelle is truly exceptional. The water turns the most beautiful shades of green, blue and turquoise depending on the sun’s radiation. The soothing babbling and the vegetation around the lake, radiate an exceptional harmony. A mysterious aura surrounds this place of strength, as until today, it is not clear, where this drinking water source came from. With a constant temperature of around seven degrees – indeed no swimming lake – it is a place to rest, take a deep breath and find new strength.

Tyrolean Festival Erl

The festival in Erl has an impressive programme waiting for you for four weeks each year. Diverse performances are on offer not only in the Concert House, but there are also special locations outside such as the Kranzhorn, where a musical accompanying programme takes place. Since the Passionsfestspielhaus was expanded to become a winter-proof establishment in 2012, a two-week music festival has also taken place in the cold months of the year.

Passion Plays in Erl

It is a more than 400 year-old tradition in Erl, to perform the passion play every six years. Today, this is one of the most important highlights of the Tyrolean culture scene.

The whole event has a historical background: In the border town of Erl, people wanted to be saved from suffering and war and vowed to re-enact the stories of the life, suffering and death of Jesus Christ in six year intervals, in order to remember the Christian message of peace time and again. Around 600 contributors from the municipality of Erl turn the passion play into an impressive cultural experience each time.
