Schwaz is also well worth visiting: about 45 minutes from Ellmau, the Silver Mine (with underground train rides) and Planetarium make a fund excursion for all ages. This can be combined with Swarowski (details below)

Urlaub beim Bergdoktor

Der Bergdoktor öffnete seine Praxis in Ellmau im Jahr 1992 zum ersten Mal: Gerhard Lippert verkörperte fünf Jahre lang den leidenschaftlich engagierten Dr. Martin Gruber. Seit 2008 hat der Österreicher Hans Sigl mit dem Bergdoktor eine seiner Lebensrollen gefunden; bislang flimmerten 12 Staffeln der ungebrochen erfolgreichen Serie über die Bildschirme. Isabelle Winkler war drei Jahre lang Teil des Teams.
