Bodenmais is a municipality (3,562 inhabitants end 2019) in the district of Regen in Lower Bavaria. It lies at one end of the Zeller Valley in the Bavarian Forest.

The tourist attractions at the Silberberg mountain include skiing tracks as well as an alpine skiing hill (about 1,050 m above sea level). 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, the most notable being Joska Glasparadies.
