Bodenmais is a municipality in the district of Regen in Bavaria in Germany. It lies at one end of the Zeller Valley in the Bavarian Forest.

Its tourist attractions include in winter a ski-ing hill (about 1050m above sea level), doubling in summer as a 600m long summer Bob-sleigh track. The ski lift also brings you to the mining museum, reminding of ages of ferro-oxide mining and Vitriol production. Some shafts are still accessible. The top of the hill is marked by a great cross. Downtown is known for its glass shops.
