Starting again is Dietmar Müller-Elmau's motto. He never planned to take over his parents' luxury hotel, Schloss Elmau, and founded a software company instead. But in 1996 he sold the firm and invested the proceeds in the family business. In 2005, a fire destroyed much of the upper floor, but Müller-Elmau rebuilt the hotel. In June, the 41st G7 summit is slated to take place there.
