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.

The tourist attractions at the Silverberg mountain include cross-country skiing tracks as well as an alpine skiing hill (about 1,050 m (3,440 ft) above sea level) in winter, doubling in summer as a 600 m (2,000 ft) long alpine slide. There is also a mining museum, reminding of ages of ferro-oxide mining and vitriol production. Some shafts are still accessible.

The village itself is known for its glass shops.
